KEMET Corporation Announces First-To-Market Expansions to its Polymer Hermetic Seal Capacitor Portfolio

KEMET Corporation announced first-to-market expansions to its Polymer Hermetic Seal (PHS) capacitor portfolio. The T550 PHS DLA and T551 Polymer Hermetic Seal (PHS) Series both offer the high voltage and deliverable energy with the lowest leakage current of any other solid tantalum capacitor. With its robust anode quality and benign failure mode, the PHS Series of capacitors are ideal for use in high voltage power management applications such as buck boost converters, filtering, hold-up capacitors, and other high ripple current applications. With reduced ESR and enhanced capacitance retention at higher frequencies and low temperatures, the PHS Series of capacitors provides the high total capacitance and the most economical solution for high power applications, all within an approximately 25% lighter package than the equivalent wet tantalum capacitor. The T551 PHS Series offers all of the performance benefits of the T550 Series but with an increased temperature rating of 125 degrees C. The T550 PHS Series is rated at 105 degrees C.

KEMET Corporation Introduces New Supercapacitor Development Balancing Kit

KEMET Corporation announced the release of its Supercapacitor Development Balancing Kit. This kit complements the KEMET S301 Supercapacitor and includes a 2-stage active balancing circuit to ensure that voltage across each Supercapacitor cell is approximately equal. Typical applications include product validation, prototyping, low volume production and custom configurations in a variety of markets. The kit features high frequency capacitance retention, energy delivery capabilities and reliability, as well as overvoltage protection and RoHS compliance. Each kit contains enough balancing cards, bus bars, screws, washers and wire to assemble six S301 60 mm diameter cells.
