Capacitor technology doubles capacitance
High stability, U2J class-1 ceramic dielectric capacitors have been announced by Kemet. The surface mount capacitors offer more than twice the capacitance available in C0G/NP0. It also provides superior temperature performance over X7R, X8R and X5R, enabling it to be used for telecomms, data acquisition and IoT.
According to the company, they offer the highest capacitance values for class-I ceramic dielectrics in the industry, with voltage stability. The capacitors are stable with a linear capacitance change with temperature, enabling a change in capacitance over the operating temperature range to be predicted. They also retain over 99% of nominal capacitance at full-rated voltage and extend the available capacitance of class-I dielectric MLCCs into a range previously available only in Class-II dielectrics, says the company.
The capacitors are Pb-free, RoHS and REACH-compliant without exemptions and available now in commercial grade and with a flexible termination option.
