Surface-Mount Capacitors come in case 1812 and 2220 sizes.

Press Release Summary:

HiCV C0G MLCC 50 and 100 V rated capacitors provide design engineers with MLCC alternative for applications that are sensitive to electrically and/or mechanically induced circuit noise, and that require stability and performance of Class 1 dielectric. They feature capacitance tolerances of F (±1%), G (±2%), J (±5%), K (±10%), and M (±20%), and meet EU and China RoHS directives. Units have capacitance shift limited to ±30 ppm/°C over operating temperature range of -55 to +125°C.

KEMET Adds Large Case Sizes to Its HiCV C0G MLCC Line

Includes First-To-Market Capacitance Values in 50V and 100V

GREENVILLE, S.C., June 17 -- KEMET Corporation (NYSE:KEM) announced today that it has expanded its HiCV C0G MLCC surface-mount product portfolio to offer industry-leading capacitance values in large case 1812 and 2220 sizes. Capacitance offerings have been extended in both 50V and 100V rated products, providing design engineers with an MLCC alternative for applications that are sensitive to electrically and/or mechanically induced circuit noise and that require the stability and performance of a Class 1 dielectric.

These new devices are being offered with capacitance tolerances of F(± 1%), G(± 2%), J(± 5%), K(± 10%) and M(± 20%) and they meet both EU and China RoHS directives. Marquee HiCV values associated with this product offering include the following part types:
1812 Case Size:   0.22µF @ 50V
1812 Case Size: 0.15µF @ 100V (First-to-Market)
2220 Case Size: 0.47µF @ 50V (First-to-Market)
2220 Case Size: 0.33µF @ 100V (First-to-Market)

"We are excited about the continuing growth and development of our C0G dielectric platform," said KEMET Chief Executive Officer Per Loof. "KEMET's C0G technology is leading the industry in CV."

With an operating temperature range between -55 degrees C and +125 degrees C and capacitance shift limited to ±30ppm/ degrees C over that range, these devices are ideal in circuit applications requiring critical timing and tuning such as mobile communications, automotive electronics, and power supply circuits. These devices also exhibit no piezoelectric properties and no capacitance change with respect to applied rated DC voltage or time.

All parts are being offered in both commercial and automotive grades with 100% pure matte tin-plated terminations that allow for excellent solderability. Sn/Pb is also available for customers who require an alternative termination finish for high-reliability applications that do not require RoHS compliance.

KEMET Corporation 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. KEMET's common stock is listed on The New York Stock Exchange under the symbol KEM. Additional information about KEMET can be found at
