World-leading electronic component distributor element14 Pty Ltd is now offering the complete line of capacitor technologies from KEMET as part of its comprehensive product portfolio in Asia Pacific.

Capacitors store, filter and regulate electrical energy and current flow of virtually all electronic applications and products in use presently. KEMET is an industry leading manufacturer of multilayer ceramic chip capacitors with application in a wide variety of computer, telecommunications, automotive, military, medical and consumer electronics.

element14 (formerly Farnell) will now offer surface-mount capacitors and through-hole capacitors from KEMET including tantalum, ceramic, aluminium, and film and paper dielectrics among other solutions for electronic design engineers in the Asia Pacific region, adding to its inventory of over 130,000 unique components.

element14’s new agreement with KEMET further enhances its offering of innovative capacitance solutions with tremendous performance and reliability.

According to Graeme Dorkings, Director of Distribution Sales in Asia Pacific, KEMET Electronics Corporation, electronic design engineers in the region require superior quality components and technical support to meet their evolving technological requirements as well as decrease time to market.

He adds that the new partnership will help KEMET reach out to an even broader base of customers in the region through element14’s extensive distribution network and comprehensive customer service and online community.

William Chong, Regional Director of Supplier Marketing, element14, Asia Pacific comments that the strategic extension of their partnership with KEMET will go a long way in providing electronic design engineers in the region with innovative, durable and cost effective capacitance solutions to meet their requirements in a wide variety of applications.

Customers have a choice of over 500 unique KEMET capacitor solutions at element14 with next day delivery to most cities in Asia Pacific.  

element14 will offer KEMET Power Solutions (KPS) Commercial Series stacked capacitors that utilise a proprietary lead-frame technology to vertically stack one or two multilayer ceramic capacitors into a single compact surface mount package.

Key features of KEMET Commercial Series stacked capacitors: 

  • Lead frame mechanically isolates the capacitor/s from the printed circuit board, offering advanced mechanical and thermal stress performance 
  • Two-chip stack offers up to double the capacitance in the same or smaller design footprint when compared to traditional surface mount MLCC devices 
  • Provides up to 10mm of board flex capability 
  • Environment-friendly and compliant with RoHS legislation 
  • Capacitance change is limited to ±15% from -55ºC to +125ºC
