Panasonic have one of the widest range of Polymer capacitors available in the industry. Polymer capacitors have excellent frequency characteristics due to their ultra-low ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance) values, they exhibit low impedance near their resonance point which reduces AC ripple in power circuits. Polymer capacitors are also very stable, showing no capacitance drift over temperature and no DC bias, this stability simplifies the design process as engineers do not need to factor in the capacitance loss due to DC bias which is common with ceramic capacitors. Polymer Capacitors are also very efficient meaning they are available in very small case sizes, this helps to contribute to a compact design and cost saving.
Panasonic have four families of Polymer based capacitors, each family has its own unique set of parameters meaning there is a Panasonic Polymer capacitor to suit most application requirements.
The SP-Cap family is a rectangular chip-shaped aluminium electrolytic capacitor that uses a polymer as its electrolyte. SP-Cap has several features including low ESR, low ESL, long life span, small size, low profile, and high characteristic stability. They are available in capacitances from 2.2 to 820uF, voltages from 2 to 6.3VDC with ESR values as low as 3 mΩ.
One of the newsest additions to the SP-Cap family is the GY series, this series has super low ESR of 3 mΩ max., is available in 2V/820uF or 2.5V/680uF values and can handle ripple currents up to 10.2A. All of this performance is housed in a compact surface mount package measuring just 7.3 x 4.3mm with a low profile height of just 2.8mm.

The POSCAP family utilizes sintered Tantalum as an anode system and highly conductive polymer created with Panasonic's unique method as a cathode system. This enables POSCAP to be thin and small whilst at the same time having low ESR and superior high frequency characteristics. These features make POSCAP one of the best candidates for digital/high frequency applications. POSCAP also has high reliability and heat resistance. They are available in capacitances from 3.9uF to 1500uF, voltages from 2 to 35VDC with ESR values as low as 5 mΩ.
The latest addition to the POSCAP family is the TDC series, this series guarantees a lifetime of 1000hrs at 125°C, is available 16V, 20V and 25V with capacitance values from 15uF to 150uF depending on model chosen. The TDC series is housed in a compact surface mount package measuring from 3.5 x 2.8mm up to 7.3 x 4.3mm with a low profile height of just 1.9mm or 2.8mm.

The OS-CON family is an aluminum solid capacitor with highly conductive polymer. OS-CON exhibits low ESR, excellent noise reduction capability and frequency characteristics. In addition, OS-CON has a long life span and its ESR has minimal change even at low temperatures due to the use of solid electrolyte in its construction. They are available in capacitances from 3.3uF to 2700uF, voltages from 2 to 100VDC with ESR values as low as 5 mΩ.
One of the key ranges in the OS-CON family is the SVPT series which offers a very high endurance life of 20,000 hrs at 105°C, the SVPT series is available in 2.5V/560uF, 6.3V/330uF and 16V/100uF with ESR down to 16 mΩ and ripple current capability up to 3.5A depending on the model chosen. The capacitors are housed in a surface mount aluminium can measuring 6.3mm diameter by 6.4mm height.

Hybrid (Polymer & Electrolyte)
The Hybrid family is constructed using a conductive polymer and electrolytic liquid, this allows the capacitor to achieve low ESR, high withstand voltage with high reliability. They are available in surface mount and radial lead packages with capacitances from 10uF to 560uF, voltages from 25 to 80VDC and ESR values as low as 11 mΩ. Hybrid capacitors can also be specified with an anti-vibration base which can withstand up to 30g vibration making them an excellent choice for harsh environments.
Panasonic Hybrid Polymer & Electrolyte capacitors are ideal for applications that require low leakage current and high reliability.
