KEMET’s X7R with KONNEKT™ technology surface mount capacitors are designed for applications where higher capacitance and voltage are needed without requiring additional board space.
KEMET’s X7R dielectric features a 125°C maximum operating temperature and is considered temperature stable.
The Electronics Components, Assemblies and Materials Association (EIA) characterizes X7R dielectric as a Class II material. Components of this classification are fixed, ceramic dielectric capacitors suited for bypass and decoupling applications or for frequency discriminating circuits where Q and stability of capacitance characteristics are not critical. X7R exhibits a predictable change in capacitance with respect to time and voltage, boasting a minimal change in capacitance with reference to ambient temperature. Capacitance change is limited to ±15% from −55°C to +125°C.
In addition to their use in power supplies, these capacitors can be used in industries related to automotive (hybrid), telecommunications, medical, military, aerospace, semiconductors and test/diagnostic equipment. Automotive Grade devices are also available which meet the demanding Automotive Electronics Council’s AEC-Q200 qualification requirements.
