KEMET Corporation (NYSE: KEM), a leading global supplier of electronic components, continued its leadership position in digital technology by announcing expansions to its repertoire of powerful electronic components tools.
“KEMET is involved in the customer journey from idea to execution, and our commitment to unparalleled borderless service extends through our advanced digital tools,” said Per Loof, KEMET Chief Executive Officer. “As our customers move from concept, to part selection, to manufacturing, KEMET is there with convenient, virtual support via high performance online and mobile applications.”
3D STEP files for CAD modeling are now offered via the new ComponentEdge search tool for most KEMET capacitor part numbers. The detailed mechanical data found in KEMET’s product datasheets is available in 3D STEP files for all surface mount aluminum, ceramic and tantalum components, as well as radial through-hole film capacitors, and can be obtained via download with a single click.
Building on the success of KEMET’s iPad® and Android™ apps, the company introduced its support for iPhone® and Windows® platforms. Convenient access to over 400 capacitor and electronic component product datasheets and the ability to easily navigate by product type or search by keyword are just a few benefits of KEMET’s mobile apps. Publications are stored locally, providing fast access without the need for continuous Wi-Fi or cellular connectivity. The app notifies users when datasheet updates are available and provides automatic downloads, eliminating concerns over outdated product information.
Included in the app is complete access to KEMET’s ComponentEdge, the industry’s most advanced part finder. ComponentEdge enables users to search and filter over 6.4 million KEMET parts — the most extensive parts database available today. Simply enter descriptive text, the KEMET part number, partial part number, competitive part number or browse and filter by electrical/physical characteristics.
Additionally, the app features access to Engineering Center, KEMET’s online education resource providing practical answers to questions involving passive components in electronic applications, as well as K-SIM, a parameter simulation tool that aids design engineers in analyzing capacitor performance over a variety of conditions. In the past year alone, K-SIM generated 100,000 plots (over 270 per day), which demonstrates its usefulness to engineers.
The KEMET app is available free of charge on the App Store℠, Google Play™ and Windows Store. For more information or links, please visit www.kemet.com/mobileapps.
