KEMET Corp. (NYSE:KEM) provided its most recent product performance results for polymer tantalum capacitors. They were developed as per the Automotive Electronics Council Q200 Reliability Document at the 2014 CARTS International Conference.

As quoted in the press release:

The presentation included the results of high temperature and high humidity testing defined in the AEC Q200 document. These results demonstrate stable electrical performance levels throughout the defined test intervals and represent a breakthrough in polymer tantalum capacitor technology.

Jayson Young, product manager at KEMET, commented:

Due to the need for an AEC Q200 qualified component in these critical applications, the automotive industry has been unable to take advantage of the advancements that polymer tantalum capacitors offer over traditional technologies. KEMET has placed extensive development resources into fulfilling this need and has overcome harsh environmental test challenges during the product design phase. We look forward to completing the final qualification stages to meet the full requirements of the AEC Q200 document and releasing the industry’s first fully-qualified automotive polymer tantalum capacitor.
