KEMET Introduces KONNEKT Technology Enabling Higher Power Densities in Smaller Form Factors
KEMET Corporation (NYSE:KEM), a leading global supplier of electronic components, today announced new patented KONNEKT technology enabling high power density by combining multiple components into a single surface mountable package. This technology is designed for use by power electronics engineers where high-power density in a small form factor is critical.
Developed in partnership with prominent power electronics designers to create a leadless multichip solution for high-efficiency and high-density power converters, KONNEKT technology utilizes innovative transient liquid phase sintering (TLPS). These devices can be mounted to PCBs using existing reflow processes. Capacitors utilizing KONNEKT technology have the unique ability to be mounted in a low-loss orientation to further increase their power handling capability.
The first release of KONNEKT technology will combine KEMET's ultra-stable U2J dielectric to create a low-loss, low-inductance package capable of handling very high ripple current in the hundreds of kilohertz range. KEMET will deploy this advanced RoHS compliant, 100% Pb-free technology across multiple product platforms.
"Power electronics engineers asked for a solution to help achieve higher efficiency in smaller packages," said Dr. John Bultitude, KEMET Vice President and Technical Fellow. "KEMET's KONNEKT technology delivers through increased efficiency by combining multiple capacitors into a single high density, ultra-low loss package."
KEMET Corporation is a leading global manufacturer of electronic components that meet the highest standards for quality, delivery and service. The company offers its customers the broadest selection of capacitor technologies in the industry, along with an expanding range of sensors, actuators, and electromagnetic compatibility solutions.
