KEMET Tantalum Kits
KEMET currently offers seven distinct Tantalum Chip Engineering Kits which are designed to provide active solutions to the passive component requirements characterized in professional OEM engineering design, prototyping, university lab research, and by hobbyist users. Each kit contains 10 to 20 pieces of each part number in a strip of carrier tape clearly labeled with KEMET part number, as well as a KEMET catalog which outlines drawings, dimensions, marking format, recommended mounting pad dimensions, and ordering information.
The Tantalum Engineering kits contain capacitors that offer many advantages including low ESR, surge current robustness and multiple operating temperature ranges. While many applications use surface mount technology, a complete line of through-hole tantalum capacitors are available for down-hole, military and other demanding environments. KEMET's traditional MnO2 tantalum capacitors consist of a sintered anode of tantalum metal. This anode is porous thus providing increased surface area. An oxide layer is then formed, and this oxide layer becomes the capacitor dielectric. The oxidized anode is impregnated with manganese dioxide to form the cathode.
Tantalum polymer capacitors are a newer variation which replaces the manganese dioxide cathode with a solid conductive polymer cathode. KEMET polymer tantalum capacitors are recommended when very low ESR, increased temperature stability or benign failure mode is critical.
