Keywords:Electrolytic capacitors  LED light bulbs  lifetimes  high-temperature 

Electrolytic capacitors are infamous for their short lifetimes in high-temperature applications such as LED light bulbs. The careful selection of these devices with proper interpretation of their specifications is essential to ensure that they do not compromise the life of the end product. This application note discusses this problem with electrolytic capacitors in LED light bulbs and provides an analysis that shows how it is possible to use electrolytics in such products.
