KEMET Corp. Introduces Automotive Grade Film Capacitors

KEMET Corp. introduced automotive grade film capacitors at the Electronica 2014 trade fair in Munich, Germany. The F862 Metallized Polypropylene Film Class X2 Series is specifically designed for safety applications subject to harsh environmental conditions such as high humidity. The F862 Series, available in capacitances up to 4.7 microfarads and rated voltages up to 310 VAC features fully-approved RFI X2 capacitors for noise filtering and peak voltage protection when connected parallel to the mains, or in series such as in a smart meter. New design enhancements resist traditional capacitance-loss mechanisms, allowing for long-term high stability. Additionally, the F862 Series meets the demanding Automotive Electronics Council's AEC-Q200 qualification requirements, passing 1,000 hours life testing at 85 degrees Celsius with 85% relative humidity at rated voltage of 240 VAC.

KEMET Corporation Introduces Automotive Polymer Capacitors

KEMET Corporation introduced its first automotive grade polymer capacitors at the Electronica 2014 trade fair in Munich, Germany. The T591 High Performance Automotive Grade Polymer Tantalum Series delivers stability and endurance under harsh humidity and temperature conditions. The T591 Series is available in capacitances up to 220 microfarads and rated up to 10 volts. This series features operating temperatures up to 125 degrees Celsius and manufactured in an ISO TS 16949 certified plant. The T591 Series qualification plan was based on AEC-Q200 guidelines and is available for Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), Part Submission Warrant (PSW) and change control. In the coming months, KEMET will be introducing additional products with higher temperature ratings (up to 150 degrees C) and higher voltages (up to 63 V). Typical uses includes decoupling and filtering of DC-to-DC converters in automotive infotainment and driver assistance applications, as well as industrial applications where harsh conditions such as high humidity and temperature are of concern.

KEMET Reveals Plans for New Product Launches and Technology Spotlights at Electronica 2014

KEMET has revealed its plans for Electronica this November, launching new tantalum capacitor families while also showcasing advanced high-performance ceramic capacitors. These new products are expected to further strengthen the company's market position as the engineer's choice for capacitors, filters, relays, EMC solutions, and supercapacitors. Booth 442 in Hall B6 will be the place to see KEMET's new AEC-Q200 compliant tantalum polymer capacitors for automotive applications. As the role of electronic systems becomes ever more important in today's cars, KEMET has prioritized high quality, reliability and volumetric efficiency to handle the demands placed on systems such as driver assistance, energy recovery and infotainment. Engineers looking for X2 capacitors capable of withstanding harsh environments such as high humidity can find out more about KEMET's new F862 series metallized polypropylene film capacitors at the booth. The F862 series are fully-approved RFI X2 capacitors for noise filtering and peak-voltage protection when connected parallel to the mains, or in series as in a smart meter. New design features resist traditional capacitance-loss mechanisms, allowing for long-term high stability. In addition, KEMET will debut its latest high-performance ultra-stable ceramic capacitors, including new devices that extend the company's leadership in the C0G category. These will focus on Class I surface-mount families rated for operation up to 200V, including high-temperature extensions for applications requiring temperature capability as high as 200 degrees C. Also making their debut in Munich, KEMET's new X8R and X8L axial ceramics are the first of their type in the world with a 150 degrees C capability for automotive and industrial applications. A wide breadth of solutions will be on show, made possible by KEMET's partnership with NEC TOKIN. Since announcing the alliance in 2013, the company has moved quickly to extend its portfolio into innovative products such as Flex Suppressor(R) sheets featuring micro-magnetic foils for attenuating interference or improving signal transmission and reception. The portfolio also offers engineers a selection of high-performing supercapacitors, miniature signal relays, metal composite inductors, EMI cores, and AC line filters.
