Kemet Corp. has launched its commercial grade high voltage ceramic surface-mount capacitor product line that is designed for applications demanding reliability at high voltages, including high voltage lamp circuits, ballast circuits for LCD displays and other fluorescent lighting, snubber circuits, high voltage tank circuits/resonator circuits, and high voltage coupling/dc blocking circuits.

The surface-mount ceramic capacitors utilize a "cascading" or "floating" internal electrode design, which divides the voltage across the device into smaller voltages that each internal section of the capacitor can easily accommodate, thereby enabling high voltage rating capability.

The ceramic capacitors are rated from 500V to 3,000V in COG and X7R dielectrics. Available EIA case sizes range from 0805 to 2225 with capacitance values from 1pF to 0.22?F.

The commercial grade high voltage ceramic capacitors have pure tin plated terminations for good solderability and are RoHS compliant.

CEO Jeffrey A. Graves said, "This product release continues Kemet's strategy to broaden our high-performance solutions to customers who value Kemet's product quality, on-time delivery, device performance, and competitive pricing."
