KEMET has introduced R41T and R76H series of AEC-Q200 qualified metallized polypropylene film capacitors. This series meets the stringent requirements of the latest automotive applications, including EV powertrain and ADAS applications, by leveraging advanced manufacturing technologies and new materials to meet the company's expertise in power management solutions.
This product in the company's portfolio has a maximum operating temperature of up to 125C and exceeds the requirements of 85C / 85% relative humidity-temperature-bias-humidity testing. Film capacitors support the design of high-performance, high-reliability circuits that combine WBG semiconductor-based solutions. These new film capacitors complement the rapid increase in electron content in typical passenger cars.
"The new technologies used in our R41T and R76H and metallized polypropylene film capacitors ensure high levels of electrical performance and industry-leading ruggedness and reliability," said Dr. Philip Lessner, senior vice president and chief technology officer of KEMET. "As silicon approaches its limit of development, the WBG market is expected to grow significantly, reaching $ 1.82 billion by 2024, and a 33.4% growth over five years. KEMET's expertise in power management solutions is maintaining this trend Consistently, these film capacitors provide further evidence and practical solutions for design engineers in the automotive and other industries.
