Polymer tantalum capacitors are emerging as an excellent choice for circuit designs that requires stable capacitance, long life, high reliability, and smaller size. Conductivity stability of Poly(3,4- ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) materials, as well as capacitors with PEDOT cathodes, were investigated in this study.
Webinar talking about the difference between nominal and net capacitance of a capacitor solution. Presented on 12 JUNE 2017 in German.
Embedded capacitors enable thinner devices. At APEC 2017 KEMET previewed a new aluminum polymer technology that can be embedded directly into the silicon for a power converter.
Choosing the wrong decoupling capacitors can have a significant impact on your circuit design. Because different capacitor technologies vary under different conditions, you need to understand which is best for you.
Surface amount electrolytic capacitors may have different derating rules associated with them, depending on their dielectric and cathode technologies. This CARTS 2004 paper shows why Tantalum, KO-CAP®, and AO-CAP® Capacitors have different derating guidelines.
