KEMET Introduces New Ceramic High Voltage Bulk Capacitance Solution at Electronica 2012

The KPS High Voltage Series in X7R Dielectric Offers Highest Capacitance/Voltage Combinations in the Industry

GREENVILLE, S.C., Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- KEMET Corporation (NYSE: KEM), a leading manufacturer of tantalum, ceramic, aluminum, film, paper and electrolytic capacitors, today introduced its new KEMET Power Solutions (KPS) High Voltage stacked capacitors in X7R dielectric at Electronica 2012 in Munich, Germany.

KEMET's KPS Series High Voltage devices utilize a proprietary lead-frame technology to vertically stack one or two multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) into a single compact surface mount package. The two-chip vertically stacked device offers up to double the capacitance in the same or smaller design footprint, allowing for both component and board space reductions.

"KEMET now offers some of the highest CV values available in a 2220 footprint," stated Craig Scruggs, KEMET Specialty Ceramics Product Manager. "These high voltage bulk capacitance devices are available in rated voltages of 500 VDC and 630 VDC, have lower ESR and ESL properties than competitive technologies, and present optimization and downsizing opportunities of existing high voltage designs. We are very pleased with the response it is receiving at Electronica," continued Scruggs.

With an operating temperature range of -55 degrees Celsius to +125 degrees Celsius, KPS Series devices provide superior flex performance over traditional surface mount MLCCs with board flex capability up to 10 mm. The lead-frame isolates the capacitors from the printed circuit board, thereby providing advanced mechanical and thermal stress performance and addressing concerns for audible microphonic noise that may occur when a bias voltage is applied. They are also environmentally friendly, capable of Pb-free reflow profiles and are available in both Commercial and Automotive Grades. KPS Series Automotive Grade capacitors meet the demanding Automotive Electronics Council's AEC-Q200 qualification requirements.

KPS devices are ideally suited to a wide range of applications which include switching power supply smoothing circuits, snubbers in lighting ballasts circuits, and high-voltage coupling/DC blocking in inverters.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
