Are the Ta Polymer SMD Automotive Grade Capacitors an alternative in MLCC supply chain issue?
KEMET’s dielectric offerings are expansive with different variations of ceramic, tantalum, film and aluminum-based capacitors. In addition to these varieties, we also offer multiple product grades to fit your needs: commercial, automotive, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS), military, space, and custom. Many people are familiar with most of these classifications but there is still some confusion on what exactly a COTS classification represents. What are
Understand why technical advances, changes in the tantalum supply chain, and new ore deposits make tantalum capacitors a substitute for many 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.
