KEMET Corp. Announces Expansion of its High Voltage Goldmax Radial Leaded Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor Product Line

KEMET Corp. announced the expansion of its High Voltage Goldmax Radial Leaded Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor (MLCC) product line to include a new 630 VDC rating as well as capacitance values. Rated for use in temperatures ranging from -55 to +125 degrees Celsius and available in both COG and X7R dielectric, High Voltage Goldmax Radial Leaded MLCCs feature KEMET's advanced ceramic technology in versatile form factors. Leaded MLCCs are often a preferred solution in application environments that promote printed circuit board (PCB) or component failure. They can be weld- or crimp-mounted, eliminating the need for a PCB, resulting in both space and cost savings. In addition, radial leaded capacitors are non-polar and can be easily integrated into an existing circuit.

KEMET Corporation Announces Extensions to its Automotive Grade Polymer Electrolytic Capacitors

The T591 KO-CAP is available in capacitances up to 330 microfarads and features operating temperatures up to 125 degrees Celsius. These extensions to KEMET's KO-CAP high performance series deliver very low ESR and improved capacitance retention at higher frequencies allowing for miniaturization and piece count reduction. The qualification plan was based on AEC-Q200 guidelines and the products are manufactured in an ISO TS 16949 certified plant. The series is available with Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), Part Submission Warrant (PSW) and change control notification.
