Electrolytic capacitors have evolved to provide high-density power delivery with high cycle life and fast charge and discharge times in EVs. Hybrid aluminum polymer capacitors have emerged as highly-promising components for automotive applications with polymer and liquid electrolytic materials combined to deliver outstanding electrical performance for 48V architecture in mild hybrid electric vehicles (MHEVs).
KEMET’s new space-saving film capacitor’s designs, the C4AU DC-link power box and the R52 and R53 EMI X2 suppression capacitors are first-to-market solutions that meet the needs of today’s most challenging applications. Extensively tested for high reliability in harsh environments, the new KEMET’s miniaturized products offer an ultra-high capacitance in a compact package for more board savings and lower application costs for engineers.
Wireless power transfer offers many advantages, including the elimination of power cords and the increase of safety and durability. Reliability and safety are both critical for users and regulated by third parties. Selection and consideration of use of MLCC ceramic capacitors is discussed in this article published by Kemet blog.
Kemet released its new haptic passive sensor recently, but what are the haptic sensors, and how are they working? The article from the Kemet blog explains some basics and sheds some light on it.
The Piezoelectric Haptic Modules (Film Flex Assembled Actuators) are revolutionary, next-generation flexible haptics actuator technology with the unique ability to provide localized, bodily sensations and tactile effects currently unavailable with any other product in the market. These versatile actuators can be used in a broad range of applications, including AR/VR, gaming controllers, and visionary products of the future that leverage human-computer interaction.
24th Annual Components for Military & Space Electronics Virtual Conference held April 19-23, 2021 is the premier event focused on the design, reliability, and application of electronic components for use in avionics, aerospace, military, and commercial space systems.
While piezoelectric haptic solutions are found in many applications, they are often large and heavy, thus shaking the entire device. KEMET’s thin (150 µm), flexible and conformable haptic actuators are made from a proprietary, patent-protected paper-thin material, an electro-active polymer ﬁlm, that enables piezoelectric effects to mimic the sense of touch.
