The T550 PHS Series Takes High Voltage Management Applications To New Levels
GREENVILLE, S.C., June 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- KEMET Corporation (NYSE: KEM), a leading manufacturer of tantalum, ceramic, aluminum, film, paper and electrolytic capacitors, today introduced its first-to-market T550 Polymer Hermetic Seal (PHS) Series of tantalum through-hole capacitors. PHS capacitors take high voltage management applications to new levels, providing up to 90% lower ESR, 40% increased ripple current capabilities, and improved capacitance retention at high frequency and low temperature compared to wet tantalum devices.

"KEMET is committed to providing our industry with first-to-market technology. It is what our customers have come to expect from us," stated Per Loof, KEMET's Chief Executive Officer. "The T550 PHS Series has the lowest ESR in the industry and the highest ripple current capability in its class. In other words, we are providing capabilities that, before now, did not exist," added Loof.
"PHS offers the highest total capacitance at low temperatures and high frequencies, surpassing wet tantalum performance and rendering it the most economical high power solution available," said Dr. Philip Lessner, KEMET Vice President, Chief Technology Officer and Chief Scientist. "Additionally, solid internal construction drastically improves shock and vibration capability, all within an approximately 25% lighter package than the equivalent wet tantalum capacitor."
With its benign failure mode, T550 PHS Series products are ideal for use in high voltage power management applications such as buck boost converters, filtering, hold-up capacitors, and other high ripple current application. Typical markets include alternative energy, industrial/lighting, medical, defense and aerospace, and telecommunications. Price range for these devices is $18 to $60.
