KEMET has introduced the company’s new KEMET Power Solutions High Temperature (KPS HT) Multilayer stacked capacitors.
KEMET's KPS HT Series devices with an X8L dielectric utilize a
proprietary lead-frame technology to vertically stack one or two Multilayer
ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) into a single compact surface mount
package. The two-chip vertically stacked device offers up to double the
capacitance in the same or smaller design footprint, allowing for both
component and board space reductions.
Providing up to 10 mm of board flex capability, KPS HT Series capacitors
are environmentally friendly and in compliance with RoHS regulations.
They are also capable of Pb-Free reflow profiles and provide low ESR and
ESL. Utilizing an X8L dielectric, these devices can provide reliable
operation up to 150ºC and are well suited for high temperature
filtering, bypass and decoupling applications.
Typical markets include alternative energy, industrial/lighting,
medical, telecommunications, automotive, and defense and aerospace. KPS
HT Series stacked capacitors complement KEMET’s extensive high
temperature product portfolio, with capacitance solutions available for extreme temperature applications up to 260ºC.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
