Greenville, S.C. Kemet Corp. has added two small case size polymer capacitors to its KO-CAP series. The T528 series devices are available in the low-profile I-Case and M-Case sizes.
To meet demand in the portable consumer electronics market, Kemet has improved the
KO-CAP polymer capacitor design to allow for increased volumetric efficiency, resulting in more than a 100% gain in active area and yielding the highest capacitance-to-case size offering available in the industry and the lowest equivalent series resistance (ESR), said the company.
Designated as the T528 series, the two new releases are available in the low-profile I-Case size (3.2 x 1.6 x 1.0 mm) and M-Case (3.5 x 2.8 x 1.5 mm). The I-Case is available in values from 100 microfarads at 3 volts to 33 microfarads at 10 volts with ESR offerings from 150 to 200 milliohms. The M-Case size is available in values from 330 microfarads at 3 volts to 100 microfarads at 10 volts with ESR offerings from 150 to 200 milliohms.
KO-CAPs are commonly used for decoupling and filtering in power management applications where space is restricted such as in cell phones, PC notebooks, digital cameras, music players and flat panel displays.
