KEMET's Superhero Technology

KEMET CEO, Per Loof, sits down with Mouser and talks about the latest in cool capacitor technology. Mr. Loof discusses some of the unique capacitor technologies KEMET offers and the tools that make our parts easy to design in.

Capacitor Design Tools

Some of the tools Per talks about includes the host of this blog, KEMET Engineering Center. Don’t forget you can sign up for our Technical Seminars known as the KEMET Institute of Technology. Last year our goal was to reach 1,000 engineers worldwide, and we had over 2,000 attendees! Check out where the next event is happening.

K-SIM is our online capacitor simulation tool. Not all capacitor parameters are found in the datasheet. K-SIM allows you to enter your application’s voltage, frequency, and temperature to see how a particular capacitor can change. We add new parts to K-SIM almost every week and update the software about once a month.

Keeping track of the data for 5 million part numbers and over 400 capacitor families can be a full-time job. (In fact, we have several people whose full-time job is exactly that!) Our mobile apps, available for Android and iOS, make it easy to find the latest data for our components.
