Experiences with MnO2 tantalum capacitors in the past may have caused some engineers to look at alternatives. However, a decade of a new Polymer tantalum solves many of the previous challenges, especially in Automotive applications.
Learn how to simulate capacitors with your application's voltage, frequency, and temperature using KEMET's K-SIM. (Also known as KEMET SPICE.)
Automotive polymer electrolytic capacitors such as KEMET's T598 are the industry's first AEC-Q200 qualified polymer capacitors. This application note discusses what a polymer capacitor is, the improvements KEMET made to pass AEC-Q200 and introduces how they can be moved from your hand to your dashboard.
Paper introducing the work involved with Automotive grade KO-CAP.
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.
