GREENVILLE, S.C., July 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KEMET Corporation (NYSE:KEM), a leading global supplier of electronic components, today announced the expansion of its surface mount High Voltage Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor portfolio with the addition of the EIA 0603 case size (1608 metric) with C0G temperature characteristics. These devices are the smallest of their kind and offer designers the ability to continue miniaturizing trends within their designs while still maintaining operating voltages up to 1,000 VDC. This release complements ArcShield X7R 0603 capacitors, the 2016 Elektra Awards Passive and Electromechanical Product of the Year.

KEMET additionally announced extended capacitance ranges in EIA 0805–1812 case sizes.  Capacitance availability is now on average three times greater in devices with voltage ratings of 500, 630 and 1,000 VDC when compared to KEMET’s previous portfolio offerings.

By utilizing patented base metal electrode (BME) technology, the C0G High Voltage series provides superior stability with no capacitance change versus DC voltage and negligible capacitance change over temperature. Available in both commercial and automotive grades in standard and flexible termination systems, this series is Pb-Free, RoHS and REACH compliant.
