Kemet has created a range of polymer electrolytic capacitors for space applications. Designed for mission critical, high capacitance and high ripple current applications, the devices are manufactured at Kemet’s facilities in Europe.
The mechanically robust assembly and epoxy housing used in the T583 series means the devices provide extremely low and stable ESR and enhanced capacitance retention at higher frequencies and low temperatures.
The capacitors meets the requirements of the European Space Components Coordination (ESCC) Generic Specification No. 3012 which covers capacitors – leadless surface mounted, tantalum, solid electrolyte, which ensures these products are suitable for high reliability applications.
T583 capacitors are designed to operate over a temperature range of -55 to +105 degrees Celsius. A detail specification was released by ESCC (3012/005) and the T583 series complies with its requirements.
