Greenville, S.C. KEMET Corp. has introduced four new first-to-market surface-mount (SMD) MIL-PRF-123 space-level ceramic capacitors. The M123A13BXB105KZ (KEMET PN C2225Z105K5XAL) is touted as the only 50-V, 1-uF SMD ceramic capacitor in the marketplace that is qualified to the MIL-PRF-123 specification.
Developed in response to the Department of Defense's need for higher capacitance capacitors per MIL-PRF-123, qualification included 4,000 hours of life testing at twice rated voltage at 125° C. KEMET also developed and qualified plated 70/30 Sn/Pb terminations for reduced dimensions when compared to hot solder dipped terminations. The M123A13 is available in both plated and hot solder dipped tin-lead termination options.
KEMET is also expanding its MIL-PRF-123 through-hole line. The molded radial through-hole expansions offer improved capacitance values and higher voltages. Click the link for a list of the new MIL-PRF-123 products.
Pricing: $0.38 to $2.59.
Availability: From stock to twelve weeks.
