KEMET Continues to Lead High Temperature Ceramic Capacitor Market

GREENVILLE, SC -- KEMET Corporation unveils its new Industrial Grade High Temperature X7R Dielectric capacitors. Unlike other competing solutions, these new devices can utilize the full rated voltage at 175 degrees Celsius. They are also offered with a flexible termination option and are RoHS compliant without exemption.

"KEMET's new high temperature X7R capacitors offer significantly higher capacitance values in smaller case sizes compared to competitive high temperature products, so that customers can save valuable space on circuit boards," said Dr. Abhijit Gurav, KEMET Vice President of Ceramic Technology. "This product features our highly reliable base metal electrode system and is available with a flexible termination system designed for 175 degrees Celsius applications."

These new high temperature capacitors are well-suited for a variety of applications in extreme environments such as down-hole oil exploration, aerospace engine compartments, geophysical probes, industrial process control, heavy commercial and specialty vehicles and construction equipment.
