KEMET unveiled new surface mount high voltage Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs) in the EIA 0603 case size (1608 metric) with C0G temperature characteristics. The C0G High Voltage series devices let designers to continue miniaturize their designs while still maintaining operating voltages up to 1,000 VDC.
The firm also announced extended capacitance ranges in EIA 0805–1812 case sizes.
With these new announcements, the capacitance availability has now become on average three times greater in devices with voltage ratings of 500, 630 and 1,000 VDC when compared to KEMET’s previous portfolio offerings, stated the firm.
The components utilise patented base metal electrode (BME) technology which helps provides superior stability with no capacitance change versus DC voltage and negligible capacitance change over temperature, according to Kemet.
Available in both commercial and automotive grades in standard and flexible termination systems, this series is Pb-Free, RoHS and REACH compliant.
The new announcement complements ArcShield X7R 0603 capacitors, the 2016 Elektra Awards Passive and Electromechanical Product of the Year.
