100µF 63V conductive polymer electrolytic capacitor in 10 x 12.5mm SMD case

Panasonic is to add a smaller case size to ZS-Series of SMD conductive polymer hybrid electrolytic capacitors. Remaining 10mm in diameter, the new case is 12mm rather than 16mm tall. “The effect of the smaller size of ZS-series is to deliver higher performance while keeping the premium PCB real estate in check with a few ...
