KEMET Introduces Ceramic Chip Capacitor Array in Smaller Case Size



KEMET has expanded its Ceramic Chip Capacitor Array portfolio with a two-capacitor array in EIA 0508 case size. This array is available for both commercial and automotive grade applications in C0G and X7R dielectrics. The KEMET Ceramic Chip Capacitor Array is an advanced passive technology where multiple capacitor elements are integrated into one common monolithic structure. Array technology allows design engineers to replace two or four discrete devices with just one device, saving circuit board space and increasing both board density and functionality. Additionally, arrays consume only a portion of the space required for standard chips, reducing inventory and pick/place machine positions. "Our customers are constantly looking for ways to save board space and reduce costs," said Tim Hollander, KEMET Product Line Manager. "Our new Ceramic Chip Capacitor Arrays demonstrate KEMET's commitment to meeting the needs of our customers and providing them with the broadest selection of capacitor technologies in the industry."
