What is OS-CON?
is an electrolytic capacitor unlike other electrolytics. While the rest uses
eletrolytic solution and manganese dioxide as eletrolyte, OS-CON
uses a high conductivity organic semiconductor. Organic
SemiCONductor, get it?
What is great about using organic semiconductor?
- High conductivity (low
resistance value) compared to other electrolytes.
- High conductivity –
stability against temperature.
has almost the same construction as an aluminium electrolytic capacitor,
and the element consists of rolled aluminium foils.
difference between OS-CON and other aluminium
electrolytics is that organic semiconductor crystal is impregnated instead of
conventional electrolyte solution.
As a result, we are talking of Equivalent Series
Resistance (ESR) that approaches that of film capacitors.
Impedance frequency characteristic of OS-CON
compared to other types of capacitors. OS-CON shows
a nearly ideal curve. At 100kHz, note that OS-CON 47uF
has nearly the same ESR as a low impedance aluminium eletrolytic capacitor of
This means that at this frequency, the 47uF OS-CON
IS AS EFFECTIVE AT REMOVING RIPPLES AS EXPENSIVE LOW IMPEDANCE
ALUMUMINIUM ELECTROLYTICS OF 100UF.
Best used in digital system’s power supplies (like
your CD player, transport, DAC), get your OS-CON from

*Note that the SP series now replaces the obsolete
SG series. SP also uses OFC as lead wires.
