This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

KEMET Safety-Certified SMD Capacitors

KEMET Electronics CAS series safety-certified, surface-mount capacitors offer international safety certifications and a smaller footprint than radial leaded disc capacitors. The CAS series is rated to 250VAC, ideal for reducing the size of AC line EMI filters, and available in subclass X1/Y2 for impulses up to 5kV or X2 for impulses up to 2.5kV. 

CAS series capacitors are offered in case sizes from 1808 to 2220 with C0G and X7R dielectrics and with capacitance values from 3.0pF to 22nF. They can operate at temperatures up to 125°C. 

The capacitors are certified to IEC 60384-14 and their serial design causes them to fail open if over flexed, avoiding potentially hazardous shorting.
