1kVdc Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors in 1608-Size

July 27, 2017 by Paul Shepard

KEMET today announced the expansion of its surface mount High Voltage Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor portfolio with the addition of the EIA 0603 case size (1608 metric) with C0G temperature characteristics.

These devices are the smallest of their kind and offer designers the ability to continue miniaturizing trends within their designs while still maintaining operating voltages up to 1,000Vdc. This release complements ArcShield X7R 0603 capacitors.

KEMET additionally announced extended capacitance ranges in EIA 0805–1812 case sizes.  Capacitance availability is now on average three times greater in devices with voltage ratings of 500-, 630- and 1,000-Vdc when compared to KEMET’s previous portfolio offerings.

By utilizing patented base metal electrode (BME) technology, the C0G High Voltage series provides superior stability with no capacitance change versus dc voltage and negligible capacitance change over temperature.

Available in both commercial and automotive grades in standard and flexible termination systems, this series is Pb-Free, RoHS and REACH compliant.
