Nichicon is getting out of the axial electrolytic capacitor
business. Digikey sent me an email stating that all of
the parts I've previously purchased are now End-of-Life
and will be unavailable for purchase after October 31.
The remaining manufacturers for similar parts include:
- Illinois Capacitor
- Cornell Dubilier Electronics
- Vishay BC Components
- Vishay Sprague
Do you have any opinions on selecting a new supplier?
The parts would be for general-purpose use, not for any
extreme temperature environment such as automotive.
I go through a lot of these since I repair/refurbish decades-
old equipment such as guitar amps/preamps, and arcade
