High temperature bulk capacitance solution

KEMET's Military Case Code (KPS-MCC) high temperature SMPS ceramic stacked capacitors combine a robust and a proprietary 0G/NPO base metal electrode (BME) dielectric system with a durable leadframe technology for high temperature and high power SMPS applications. These devices are specifically designed to withstand the demands of harsh industrial environments such as down-hole oil exploration and automotive/avionics engine compartment circuitry.
