Greenville, South Carolina (February 10, 2009) - KEMET Corporation (KEME.OB), The Capacitance Company, announced that it has released its full line of capacitor models to the Mentor Graphics simulation software, which allows Signal Integrity, Power Integrity, and board design engineers to model the decoupling scheme of a printed circuit board using the Mentor HyperLynx 8.0 Power Integrity and HyperLynx Signal Integrity products.
KEMET's new low ESR and low ESL polymer products are specifically designed for the high speed processor board level decoupling applications.
Using the Mentor HyperLynx 8.0 Power Integrity simulation tool, design engineers will have the ability to model the time-domain and frequency behavior of Aluminum, Film, Ceramic, and Tantalum SMD capacitors manufactured by KEMET. This new resource will make it easier for the products of tomorrow to be designed using KEMET capacitors.
"KEMET's goal is to ensure that our models are included and compatible with the most accepted, demanding, and accurate of the simulation tools available. We believe that with the inclusion with Mentor's software, we have completed a major step towards that goal," stated John D. Prymak, Director Advanced Applications, KEMET Electronics Corp. "Our focus continues to be on partnering with design engineers and helping to find the right capacitance solutions to accomplish their project's specific need,"
"We are pleased to work with KEMET to assure that our customers have access to their full line of capacitor models when using the HyperLynx 8.0 Power Integrity and HyperLynx Signal Integrity products. The biggest hurdle for analysis has always been accurate models and KEMET is on top of this with strong characterization of their parts, enabling engineers to quickly set up analysis to optimize their power distribution networks," stated Dave Kohlmeier, High-Speed Product Line Director, Mentor Graphics.
KEMET Corporation (KEME.OB) applies world-class service and quality to deliver industry-leading, high-performance capacitance solutions to its customers around the world. KEMET offers the world's most complete line of surface-mount and through-hole capacitor technologies across tantalum, ceramic, film, aluminum, electrolytic, and paper dielectrics.
