Customer Change Notification
a) The T530 and T525 Series have been commercial offerings for many years. The T530 is the multi-anode polymer commercial surface mount series and the T525 is our single anode polymer commercial surface mount series. The DLA drawings were created, by KEMET, to offer military controlled polymer surface mount capacitor options. KEMET had not yet released our T541 or T540 Polymer COTS Series at the time the 04052 and 04051 specifications were created and, therefore, the T530 and T525 Series were used.
b) Our T541 and T540 Tantalum Series are manufactured with locked-in conservative anode designs and screening procedures. The design rules are equal or more robust than the T530 and T525 Series, and screening procedures including surge current testing were added along with several other tests such as thermal shock and X-ray as a standard instead of being optional. Rated voltage range is extended up to 63 V.
