The design features and testing protocol make this product suitable for use in the computer, industrial/lighting, telecommunications, defence and aerospace markets. Its performance characteristics are ideal for various high reliability applications such as decoupling and filtering in radar and switch mode power supplies.
According to Dr. Philip Lessner, KEMET Vice President, Chief Technology Officer and Chief Scientist. “This new package design offers the highest capacitance per volume of any moulded leadframe product and provides a broader, more direct path for heat to be dissipated through the capacitor than traditional construction. Additionally, the facedown construction offers higher power ratings per volume.”
“The T428 Series was developed to provide the volumetric efficiency of a conformally coated capacitor in a pick-and-place friendly moulded package,” said Ed Jones, KEMET Product Manager, Specialty Tantalum Capacitors. “The planarity of the moulded package eliminates potential issues associated with conformally coated tantalum surface mount devices.”
