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.
