Greenville, S.C. Kemet Corp. has introduced a multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) line in a 1210 case size with the same capacitance and voltage extensions as its newly expanded EIA 1812 package. The HiCV capacitors offer capacitance values of 4.7 uF and 6.8 uF in a 25-volt rated part and 10 uF in a 50-volt rated device.
The surface-mount capacitors, offered in a X7R dielectric, feature an operating temperature range of -55°C to 125°C, with zero bias capacitance shift limited to ±15% over that range. Capacitance tolerances include both K (±10%) and M (±20%). They meet all requirements of the Automotive Electronic Council's AEC-Q200-Rev C. The capacitors feature 100% pure matte tin-plated terminations. Tin/lead terminations are available for military and high-reliability customers.
These HiCV capacitors are suitable for use in automotive and consumer electronic devices including laptop and desktop computers, digital cameras, gaming systems, LCDs, handheld devices, and disc drives. Applications include decoupling, by-pass, filtering and energy storage.
Pricing: $.20 to $.32 each.
