KEMET expands 100 per cent RoHS, REACH and AEC-Q200 compliant leaded MLCCs

KEMET, a leading global supplier of electronic components, has announced the expansion of its Goldmax and Aximax leaded Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor (MLCC) product line to include 100 per cent RoHS, REACH and AEC-Q200 compliant offerings. These radial and axial components feature industry-leading voltage ranges, rendering them ideal for the automotive market.


Automotive grade Goldmax and Aximax capacitors are designed for a range of applications including wiper, power window and sunroof motors as well as seat belt, transmission and alternator sensors.


Leaded MLCCs are often a preferred solution in environments where mounting space is limited. They can be weld- or crimp-mounted, eliminating the need for a PCB, resulting in overall cost savings. In addition, leaded capacitors are non-polar and can be easily integrated into an existing circuit.


“KEMET’s Goldmax and Aximax automotive grade capacitors combine robust performance with versatile assembly and are well-suited for a variety of applications” said Adriana Sanchez, KEMET associate product manager. “In addition to being both lead- and halogen-free, these components are in compliance with the EU Commission Directive 2016/774, addressing the needs of our automotive customers.”
