Looking for MLCC alternatives? Explore different solutions from SMD Film capacitors.
Are you a designer looking for Automotive Capacitor alternatives? The existing full AEC-Q200 qualified series T598 (125ºC) and T599 (150ºC) form KEMET can help to provide better capacitance stability, better capacitance retention, lower ESR, higher ripple handling, and long life. However if you are seeking for extreme miniaturization check out the KEMET's latest development in the new 3216-12 (EIA1206) and 2012-10 (EIA 0805) case sizes and you can benefit with significant space board and [...]
Axial Capacitors are designed specifically for demanding applications requiring very long life, high vibration resistance and high ripple current as we have e.g. in Automotive applications. The biggest advantage of the new Conductive Polymer Hybrid Capacitors is the extremely low ESR which leads into less self-heating and therefore a very high ripple capability. Hybrid capacitors combine all advantages of the Solid Polymer world with all advantages of the Aluminum Electrolytic world.
Overvoltage spikes can destroy capacitors. We cover topics of how to choose the right varistor and what should be considered in the design itself.
To meet the growing demand of higher efficiency power converters, designers are utilizing fast switching wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductors which operate at higher voltages, temperatures, and frequencies. However, just implementing WBG semiconductors are not enough to realize the maximum potential of new converter topologies. Designers must also select the proper passive components such as capacitors to support DC-LINK, snubber, and resonator applications. This webinar will review the wide [...]
