Greenville, S.C. -- Kemet Corp. has completed the integration of advanced components from NEC TOKIN, giving the global supplier of capacitors access to electromechanical devices and other passive components. Kemet announced its alliance with NEC TOKIN in 2013. The new products include supercapacitors, miniature signal relays, metal composite inductors, EMI cores, AC line filters, flex suppression sheets and an expanded line of tantalum capacitors.
At the same time, Kemet has continued to expand its capacitor portfolio over the past year. These include several "first-to-market" devices, including expanded capacitance/voltage (CV) values for the high voltage COG dielectric, polymer hermetic seal tantalum capacitors, and high temperature multilayer stacked capacitors in an X8L dielectric. The component manufacturer also expanded its offerings for ceramic, tantalum polymer, tantalum MnO2, aluminum electrolytic, and safety disc capacitors.
The expanded portfolio, supported by Kemet's 'Easy-to-Buy-From' (ETBF) commitment, gives buyers and designers access to a range of passive and electromechanical technologies from one supplier. This means customers purchasing the NEC TOKIN products will get the same "ease of quoting and ordering, timely and reliable delivery, and technical support" associated with the Kemet brand.
"We have long been known as the 'Easy-to-Buy-From' company," said Per Loof, Kemet, chief executive officer, in a statement. "The KEMET brand was built on providing superior global customer service and the collaborative engineering services our customers need. Now, our value proposition also includes a much larger presence in Asia, the NEC TOKIN product portfolio and its state-of-the-art manufacturing processes."
The NEC TOKIN products will be available through Kemet's existing global channels.
