Arcotronics Group, a KEMET company, is a world leading producer of passive components including the SMD film capacitor, film capacitor, EMC-RFI filter, aluminum electrolytic capacitor, and ceramic capacitor.

Arcotronics is a leading manufacturer of plastic film and metallized plastic film capacitors and wet tantalum capacitors, from Blue Skye (Lux) S.a.r.l., a company owned by the special opportunities funds managed by D.B. Zwirn & Co., L.P. In addition to manufacturing capacitors, Arcotronics is a leading manufacturer of battery and film capacitor machinery. Kemet acquired Arcotronics Italia S.p.A., a manufacturer of plastic film and metallized plastic film capacitors and wet tantalum capacitor in October 2007.

KEMET Corporation applies world-class service and quality to deliver industry-leading, high-performance capacitance solutions to its customers around the world. KEMET offers the world’s most complete line of surface-mount and through-hole capacitor technologies across tantalum, ceramic, aluminum, film and paper dielectrics. KEMET’s common stock is listed on The New York Stock Exchange under the symbol KEM

Yageo Corporation acquired all of the outstanding shares of KEMET’s common stock for US$27.20 per share in an all-cash transaction valued at US $1.8 billion, including the assumption of net debt. The combination of Yageo and KEMET will create an industry leader in the $28 to $32 billion passive components industry, with combined annual revenues of approximately US$3 billion. Yageo and KEMET believe this transaction will generate greater value for customers and shareholders of both companies.

Yageo’s common stock is listed on the Taiwan Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “2327” (TAIEX: 2327 TW). Yageo is a leading global electronic component company with capabilities on a global scale, including production and sales facilities in Asia, Europe and the Americas. The company provides one-stop-shopping, offering its complete product portfolio of resistors, capacitors, wireless and circuit protection components to meet the diverse requirements of customers.

KEMET Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs) are a preferred capacitance solution, offering tremendous performance, reliability and cost advantages for circuit designers. Our comprehensive line of surface mount and through-hole devices are utilized in a wide variety of computer, telecommunications, automotive, military, medical and consumer electronics. Primary applications include decoupling, filtering, bypassing and smoothing.

Ceramic Capacitors

Ceramics are non-polar devices which offer unsurpassed volumetric efficiency, delivering the highest capacitance in the smallest package sizes in the market. Available in a wide range of sizes, KEMET MLCCs offer very low equivalent series resistance (ESR), exhibit excellent high frequency characteristics and are extremely reliable. KEMET is driving ceramic capacitor technology advancement, resulting in smaller case sizes, better performances and lower costs. These factors have accelerated the progression of readily available ceramics into markets and applications previously occupied by tantalum, aluminum and film capacitors, lowering the risk of material shortages.

MLCCs are monolithic devices that consist of laminated layers of specially formulated, ceramic dielectric materials interspersed with a metal electrode system. The layered formation is then fired at high temperature to produce a sintered and volumetrically efficient capacitance device. A conductive termination barrier system is integrated on the exposed ends of the chip to complete the connection.

KEMET offers one of the broadest product portfolios of ceramic capacitors in the industry, which allows us to provide customers the right combination of dielectric, termination system, form factor and screening.
