PERKINS LAW FIRM CLIENT KEMET ANNOUNCES

Tin/Lead Terminated Ceramic Capacitors Offering Ideal Solution for High Reliability Soldering Applications

Perkins client, KEMET Corporation (NYSE: KEM), a leading global supplier of electronic components, today highlighted its portfolio of tin/lead terminated ceramic surface mount capacitors in C0G and X7R dielectrics. These devices are well suited for applications which include defense and aerospace electronics.

"Engineers often limit their choices to established reliability devices that are outlined in active military performance specifications or customer drawings. KEMET's tin/lead terminated products address these concerns, providing a commercial solution where customer specifications allow," stated Craig Scruggs, KEMET's Specialty Product Manager Ė Ceramics. "We are pleased that we can provide commercial solutions with terminations that meet our customers' requirements for lead-based solder operations."

KEMET's tin/lead terminated capacitors fill the demand within the defense and aerospace industries for products with rated voltages, capacitance values and case sizes that are currently excluded from active Military Performance Specifications.

Typical markets include defense and aerospace, telecommunications, computer, industrial, lighting, medical (non-implantable) and alternative energy. These devices range in price from $0.04 to $3.50 and complement KEMET's up-screened high voltage and high temperature ceramics, custom ceramic solutions and new T543 Series Polymer Tantalum COTS.
