KC-LINK for Fast Switching Semiconductor Applications DC Link, Snubber, Resonator Capacitor, 150°C (Commercial & Automotive Grade)

KEMET's KC-LINK surface mount capacitors are designed to meet the growing demand for fast switching wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductors that operate at higher voltages, temperatures, and frequencies. By utilizing KEMET's robust and proprietary C0G/NPO base metal electrode (BME) dielectric system, these capacitors are well suited for power converters, inverters, snubbers, and resonators, where high efficiency is a primary concern. With extremely low effective series resistance (ESR) and very low thermal resistance, KC-LINK capacitors can operate at very high ripple currents with no change in capacitance versus DC voltage, and negligible change in capacitance versus temperature. With an operating temperature of 150°C, these capacitors can be mounted close to fast switching semiconductors in high power density applications, which require minimal cooling.

KEMET and the Solid Capacitors Business Group (SCBG) are pleased to announce the addition of several new HiCV values to the Surface Mount Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor (SMD MLCC) portfolio in X7R dielectric Auto Grade. These new devices meet the same high performance quality standards of KEMET's ceramic capacitors, offering long component life, increased reliability and non-directional polarization for simplified component mounting. X7R dielectric devices are ideal for bypass and decoupling applications or for frequency discriminating circuits where Q and stability of capacitance characteristics are not critical.

KEMET’s X7R dielectric features an 125°C maximum operating temperature and is considered “temperature stable”. They exhibit a predictable change in capacitance with respect to time and voltage and boasts a minimal change in capacitance with reference to ambient temperature. Capacitance change is limited to ±15% from -55°C to +125°C.
