KEMET Power Solutions (KPS) Automotive Series stacked capacitors utilize a proprietary lead-frame technology to vertically stack one or two multilayer ceramic chip capacitors into a single compact surface mount package. The attached lead-frame mechanically isolates the capacitor/s from the printed circuit board, therefore offering advanced mechanical and thermal stress performance. Isolation also addresses concerns for audible, microphonic noise that may occur when a bias voltage is applied. A two chip stack offers up to double the capacitance in the same or smaller design footprint when compared to traditional surface mount MLCC devices. Providing up to 10mm of board flex capability, KPS Series capacitors are environmentally friendly and in compliance with RoHS legislation. Available in X7R dielectric, these devices are capable of Pb-Free reflow profiles and provide lower ESR, ESL and higher ripple current capability when compared to other dielectric solutions.

Combined with the stability of an X7R dielectric, KEMET’s KPS Series devices exhibit a predictable change in capacitance with respect to time and voltage and boast a minimal change in capacitance with reference to ambient temperature. Capacitance change is limited to ±15% from -55°C to +125°C.

KPS Series automotive grade capacitors meet the demanding Automotive Electronics Council's AEC-Q200 qualification requirements and are manufactured in state of the art ISO/TS 16949:2002 certified facilities.
