KEMET introduced new automotive-grade polymer capacitors at Electronica 2014. The T591 high-performance automotive-grade polymer tantalum series delivers stability and endurance under harsh humidity and temperature conditions. It is available in capacitances up to 220 µF and rated up to 10 V, with operating temperatures up to 125°C.
“The T591 Series was developed with enhancements in polymer materials, design and manufacturing processes to meet the increasing demands of the telecommunications, industrial, and now, automotive segments,” Dr. Philip Lessner, KEMET Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, was quoted saying a release.
You can use the series for a variety of projects, such as decoupling and filtering of DC-to-DC converters in automotive applications or industrial applications in harsh conditions.
