GREENVILLE, S.C., April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- KEMET Corporation (NYSE: KEM), a leading manufacturer of tantalum, ceramic, aluminum, film, paper and electrolytic capacitors, today announced the expansion of its T513 Multiple Anode Low ESR COTS MnO2 Series with an industry leading 35 volt rated product.
"This surface mount series offers very low ESR and surge robustness designed for applications that require high surge current and high ripple current capability," said Phil Lessner, KEMET Senior Vice President, Chief Technology and Marketing Officer. "These benefits are achieved via a multiple anode construction that results in improved capacitance retention at high frequency."
The KEMET T513 Series is suitable for the Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) requirements of the alternative energy, industrial/lighting, telecommunications, transportation, and defense and aerospace markets. Typical applications include decoupling and filtering in radar, sonar, power supply, guidance systems and other high reliability applications.
