Subject: Capacitor Reliability
Hi, I have heard that aluminum electrolytics can outgas if subjected to high temperatures. Have any studies been done to quantify this effect as a fuction of temperature? I am using a miniature aluminum electrolytic rated at 105 C, and the max temp it will ever see is 80 C. Is it safe to assume that since I am operating well within the temperature range, any outgassing would be be negligible? Any advice or leads would be much appreciated. Thanks! Ray Moran
