CKC series KC-LINK™ surface mount capacitors
KEMET’s New KC-LINK™ Capacitor Series Offers Industry Leading Performance for Fast Switching Wide Bandgap Semiconductor Applications
KEMET’s New KC-LINK™ Capacitor Series offers industry leading performance for fast switching wide bandgap semiconductor applications.
KEMET is pleased to announce a complete capacitance and voltage offering for the KC-LINK™ surface mount capacitors in the EIA 3640 case size. The very high ripple current capabilities make KC-LINK™ capacitors ideal for use with fast-switching wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductors, which enables power converters to operate at higher voltages, temperatures and frequencies, and achieve higher efficiency levels and greater power density. These devices are suitable for use in DC-Link, snubber and resonant applications.
KC-LINK™ capacitors are available with capacitance values ranging from 4.7nF to 220nF and voltage ranges of 500V to 1700V. These devices utilize KEMET’s robust Class I C0G Base Metal Electrode (BME) dielectric technology giving them superior capacitance stability over temperature and voltage, combined with high ripple current capability. Furthermore, these capacitors exhibit extremely low equivalent series resistance (ESR) and equivalent series inductance (ESL). With an operating temperature range of -55°C to +150°C, KEMET’s KC-LINK™ capacitors can be mounted near fast-switching semiconductors in high density power applications. Available in both commercial and automotive (AEC-Q200) grades, this series is Pb-Free, RoHS and REACH compliant.
