Technology summary for High-Reliability (Hi-Rel) surface mount Polymer Tantalum Capacitors. At Space Tech Expo 2017, Cristina shows improvements made to KO-CAP to make them suitable for ESA usage in space.
Webinar talking about the difference between nominal and net capacitance of a capacitor solution. Presented on 12 JUNE 2017 in German.
Abhijit Gurav presented the latest data we've collected on our BME Ceramic DC Link capacitor platform. These C0G ceramic capacitors are designed for high frequency and high-temperature DC Link applications. This update was presented at APEC 2017 in Tampa, FL.
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.
Tantalum polymer capacitors are expanding their market share in the commercial world because they offer superior electrical performance (primarily much lower ESR), have outstanding reliability, and display a more benign failure response than the incumbent MnO2-cathode tantalum capacitor technology. It is natural that engineers want to use this new technology in high-reliability applications.
