Element14 Strengthens Kemet Pact

SINGAPORE — element14 (formerly Farnell), the first electronic component distributor that fuses commerce and community, today announced it will offer surface-mount capacitor and through-hole capacitor technologies from KEMET.

This includes tantalum, ceramic, aluminium, and film and paper dielectrics among other solutions for electronic design engineers in the Asia Pacific region, further growing its inventory of over 130,000 unique components.

Capacitors store, filter, and regulate electrical energy and current flow of virtually all electronic applications and products used today. element14’s new agreement with KEMET further enhances its offering of innovative capacitance solutions with tremendous performance and reliability.

“As electronic design engineers in the region continue to experience evolving technological requirements, they will require superior quality components and technical support to decrease time to market and facilitate growth,” says Graeme Dorkings, Director of Distribution Sales in Asia Pacific, KEMET Electronics Corporation. “We are excited to increase our partnership to 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.”

“At element14 we constantly strive to enhance strategic partnerships to provide electronic design engineers with the latest and most comprehensive solutions from products and best in class technical support to information, tools and software to meet all design requirements,” says William Chong, Regional Director of Supplier Marketing, element14, Asia Pacific. “The strategic extension of our 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.”

Over 500 unique KEMET capacitor solutions will be available at element14 with next day delivery to most cities in Asia Pacific. KEMET is an industry leading manufacturer in Multilayer Ceramic Chip Capacitors, and the comprehensive line of surface mount and through-hole devices are utilized in a wide variety of computer, telecommunications, automotive, military, medical and consumer electronics.

element14 will offer KEMET Power Solutions (KPS) Commercial Series stacked capacitors that utilize a proprietary lead-frame technology to vertically stack one or two multilayer ceramic chip capacitors into a single compact surface mount package. The attached lead-frame mechanically isolates the capacitor/s from the printed circuit board, therefore offering advanced mechanical and thermal stress performance.

A two chip stack offers up to double the capacitance in the same or smaller design footprint when compared to traditional surface mount MLCC devices. Providing up to 10mm of board flex capability, KPS Series capacitors are environmentally friendly and in compliance with RoHS legislation.
