KEMET is a qualified supplier of various military and high reliability specifications. The Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) program is an extension of KEMET's knowledge of high reliability test regimes and requirements. KEMET has for years supplied product that has been "up-screened" by working with customer drawings and imposing the design and test requirements specified. The COTS program will offer the same high quality and reliability components "up-screened" to the ordered test level at a lower cost to the customer. It eliminates the need for customer specific drawings used to achieve the reliability level required for customer applications. The tests and inspections imposed by the COTS program have been selected to provide the accelerated conditioning and 100% screening to eliminate infant mortal failures from the population.
All COTS testing includes Voltage Conditioning and post electrical testing per MIL-PRF-55681, paragraph 188.8.131.52, Standard voltage conditioning.
KEMET COTS MLCC surface mount capacitors are available in standard EIA case sizes from 0402 to 2225 and standard capacitance values in X7R and C0G dielectrics. Voltage ratings range from 6.3V to 200V. To order the COTS part number use a "T" in the 6th digit of the part number in conjunction with the desired test level (A, B, or C) in the 13th digit. A Tin/Lead termination option is also available with COTS by using an "L" in the 14th digit of the part number. For additional dielectrics and voltage ratings please call TTI at 877-645-4884.
