KEMET releases world's first 250-V 0402 C0G ceramic capacitors

February 10, 2015 // By Paul Buckley
KEMET Corporation has expanded the company's commercial and automotive lines of surface mount multilayer ceramic capacitors in C0G dielectric.

The company is claiming the world's first 250 V rated 0402 case size capacitors offering with values up to 330 pF. In addition, capacitance offerings in EIA 0603 through 2220 case size devices have been extended by more than 30%.

KEMET C0G dielectric capacitors are utilized in a wide variety of applications including critical timing, tuning, decoupling, bypass, filtering, blocking, circuits requiring low loss, circuits with pulse, high current, transient voltage suppression and energy storage.

The material used in the C0G devices eliminates piezoelectric noise, offers low ESR and ESL, high thermal stability and no capacitance decay with time. Available in both commercial and automotive grades, KEMET C0G capacitors feature a variety of termination finish options including matte tin, tin-lead, and gold.
