KEMET Offers Higher Voltage AO-CAPKEMET recently released five new part numbers with voltage ratings of 12.5V and 16V for the AO-CAP product, which is designated as the A700 Series. The AO-CAP provides a high-frequency, bulk-capacitance solution. With aluminum as the anode material, aluminum oxide as the dielectric, and a conductive polymer as the counter-electrode, KEMET has created a high-frequency capacitor with extremely low ESR. The KEMET AO-CAP is robust to the SMT process and provides strong protection against cracks (flex). The AO-CAP is an ideal alternative to high-capacitance ceramics and a step up from existing aluminum-organic capacitors. Its outstanding high-frequency performance helps reduce component counts for a cost-effective solution that also saves board space.
