KEMET announced that it has expanded its X7R 250-V multilayer ceramic capacitor series to include smaller case sizes and increased capacitance values. These compact surface-mount-technology footprints benefit designers in saving printed-circuit-board space while reaching capacitance values up to 0.47 mF and case sizes as small as 0603.
The X7R 250-V product expansion supports the need for increasingly higher voltages in automotive applications such as lighting, electric charging, sensors, and EMI suppression. In addition, 220-V power systems are common across the globe, and small case size 250-V X7R capacitors are suitable for high-power, small-form-factor devices. This series may be combined with KEMET’s flexible termination system to provide mechanical robustness, and it complements KEMET’s portfolio of power inductor solutions.
