Keywords:KEMET  capacitor  MLCC  snubber 

KEMET Corp. has expanded its flexible termination (FT-CAP) product line-up with the introduction of high voltage C0G multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs). The HV C0G FT-CAP is geared for various high voltage applications in which high volumetric efficiency and resistance to thermal and board stress are critical.

KEMET's flexible termination system uses a conductive epoxy in order to establish pliability while maintaining terminal strength, solderability and electrical performance. The epoxy inhibits the transfer of board stress to the MLCC body that reduces the potential for internal cracking that results in low IR or short circuit failures.

HV C0G FT-CAP devices exhibit low ESR at high frequencies and find conventional use as snubbers or filters in applications such as switching power supplies and lighting ballasts. Exceptional performance at high frequencies has made high voltage multilayer ceramic capacitors the preferred dielectric choice of design engineers worldwide. In addition to use in power supplies, these capacitors are widely used in industries related to automotive (hybrid), telecommunications, medical, defense, aerospace, semiconductors and test/diagnostic equipment.

This product line is lead-free, RoHS and REACH compliant. In addition to Commercial Grade, Automotive

Grade devices are also available for mission and safety critical circuits requiring stricter testing protocol and inspection criteria. Tin/lead termination is available on request.
