Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors Unveiled at APEC

​KEMET is previewing its new multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) featuring its advanced U2J Class-1 dielectric technology at the 2016 IEEE Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition (APEC).

Also displayed at the booth are KEMET's F862 enhanced polypropylene film capacitors, which deliver superior performance in high-humidity or series-coupling applications. When used as X2 capacitors in equipment deployed in harsh environments, such as smart meters, F862 devices can achieve life ratings over 15 years compared to standard capacitors that may last only two or three years.

In addition, KEMET is demonstrating its new electronic components smartphone/tablet app, which provides access to over 350 capacitor and electronic component datasheets directly on the user's device. The app also features CapacitorEdge, a parts finder capable of searching KEMET's database of nearly 6 million part numbers, as well as the Engineering Center online educational resource for designing with passive components, and the K-SIM simulator for analyzing capacitor performance over a variety of conditions.
