KEMET releases a new rectangular aluminum capacitor series for automotive applications


The KEMET AAR70 is an AEC-Q200 qualified aluminum rectangular capacitor, designed for automotive applications. It offers high capacitance, high ripple current capability, and robust vibration resistance. Rated at 85ºC, the AAR70 offers good volumetric efficiency in a shape that lends itself to stacking into modules. The large surface area of the aluminum case allows for easy use with a heat sink


Typical applications are mainly in the field of e-mobility, such as on-board chargers, inverters, or wall boxes.
