KEMET’s high voltage surface mount MLCCs in C0G dielectric feature a 125°C maximum operating temperature and are considered “stable.” The Electronics Industries Alliance (EIA) characterizes C0G dielectric as a Class I material. Components of this classification are temperature compensating and are suited for resonant circuit applications or those where Q and stability of capacitance characteristics are required. C0G exhibits no change in capacitance with respect to time and voltage and boasts a negligible change in capacitance with reference to ambient temperature. Capacitance change is limited to ±30 ppm/ºC from -55°C to +125°C. These devices exhibit low ESR at high frequencies and find conventional use as snubbers or filters in applications such as switching power supplies and lighting ballasts. Their exceptional performance at high frequencies has made high voltage MLCCs the preferred dielectric choice of design engineers worldwide. In addition to their use in power supplies, these capacitors are widely used in industries related to automotive (hybrid), telecommunications, medical, military, aerospace, semiconductors and test/diagnostic equipment. Automotive Grade is available for applications requiring proven, reliable performance in harsh environments. Whether under-hood or in-cabin, these capacitors are designed for mission and safety critical automotive circuits. Stricter testing protocol and inspection criteria have been established for automotive grade products in recognition of potentially harsh environmental conditions. KEMET automotive grade series capacitors meet the demanding Automotive Electronics Council's AEC–Q200 qualification requirements.
