KEMET Announces Additions to Its High Voltage Polymer Tantalum Capacitor Series

Greenville, South Carolina - KEMET Corporation (NYSE: KEM), a leading manufacturer of tantalum, ceramic, aluminum, film, paper and electrolytic capacitors, today announced the expansion of its Polymer Tantalum portfolio with new product additions to the KEMET T521 High Voltage Series.

"The KEMET development team has been working to expand our leading-edge product offerings for the T521 High Voltage Series," said Jayson Young, KEMET Product Manager for Tantalum and Aluminum Products. "These new introductions offer the benefit of greater capacitance in smaller form factors as well as enhanced electrical performance. Compared to current industry-leading capacitor values, these new releases allow designers to replace up to three of the highest rated component values previously available with a single component."

New industry leading additions to the T521 High Voltage Polymer Tantalum Series include 16V offerings with capacitance values of 220uF and 330uF, as well as a 25V
offering with a capacitance value of 100uF. The T521 Series is a popular solution for circuits that require higher voltages than are typically available in standard polymer tantalum devices and higher performance over traditional tantalum capacitors. With its superior voltage derating and low ESR values, the T521 Series delivers increased performance and reliability within a smaller package size compared to currently available capacitor options.
