KEMET Corporation Releases M55 Module Polymer Hermetic Seal Capacitor Portfolio

KEMET Corporation announced the release of its M55 Module Polymer Hermetic Seal (PHS) capacitor portfolio. KEMET's M550 and M551 Modular Series are designed for mission critical high capacitance and voltage applications and are manufactured by placing T550 or T551 Polymer Hermetic Seal capacitors in parallel. The M55 Series is suitable for telecom, computer, defense and aerospace applications. With its robust anode quality, benign failure mode, mechanically robust assembly and epoxy housing, the M55 Series of modules are ideal for use in high voltage power management applications such as buck boost converters, filtering, hold-up capacitors, and other high ripple or high in-rush current applications. The M55 Modular Series provides extremely low and stable ESR and enhanced capacitance retention at higher frequencies and low temperatures, resulting in the higher total capacitance and most economical solution for high power applications. KEMET has qualified the discrete components used in the M55 Series to DLA Drawing 13030 to ensure these products are suitable for high reliability applications KEMET, in association with entities within the space community and several KEMET aerospace customers, has confirmed that the rigorous testing options included in this comprehensive drawing are applicable to standard and high reliability flight applications including space. Discrete parts qualified according this drawing are available options for this modular capacitance solution.

KEMET Corporation Introduces the AEC-Q200 Qualified Polymer Electrolytic Capacitor

KEMET Corporation introduced T598 High Humidity/High Temperature Series, the first polymer electrolytic capacitor that meets all of the requirements of the Automotive Electronics Council's AEC-Q200 specification for passive components. Building on the success of the T591 Series, KEMET further refined the design, materials and manufacturing to ensure the T598 Series delivers higher stability and endurance under harsh conditions. These improvements result in a design that exceeds the humidity bias testing requirements of 85 degrees Celsius with 85% relative humidity in addition to delivering stable electrical performance at 125 degrees Celsius. The T598 Series is available in capacitances of up to 330 microfarads and rated voltages up to 16 volts. The qualification test plan is in accordance with AEC-Q200 and these products are manufactured in an ISO TS 16949 certified facility. This series is available for Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), Part Submission Warrant (PSW) and Change Control Notification. Typical applications include decoupling and filtering of DC-to-DC converters in automotive infotainment and advanced driver assistance, as well as industrial and telecom applications where harsh conditions such as high humidity and temperature are of concern.
