Internet

For some, it’s hard to imagine a world without the internet, and it can be easy to forget that it’s no small task to keep everything connected, all the time, all around the world. A vast number of data centers and a massive network infrastructure keeps everything up and running.

KEMET powers the internet by providing the components needed to run those data centers, the edge computing devices that feed the data centers, and the network infrastructure to link it all together.

  • KEMET supercapacitors can be used for holding up power for critical parts of servers and storage in the case of a line power failure
  • High reliability polymer capacitors provide low ESR and high CV than can reduce part count and ripple voltage
  • KEMET’s proprietary U2J KONNEKT solution is ideal for DC-DC LLC resonant tank converters that can be found powering the servers in many data centers
Wired Networks

Wired Networks

Wired telephone networks today route through electronic switches in data centers that continue to maintain unique regulations and requirements. KEMET supports other wired networks as well, such as those provided by cable broadband or fiber optic Internet service providers.

  • Variety of components suitable for all levels of Network Equipment-Building System (NEBS) compliant equipment
  • High reliability capacitors designed for ultimate reliability with an operating temperature of  -55ºC to 125ºC
  • Extensive line of available components for EMC when electromagnetic noise is an issue, ranging from X-Y safety capacitors to differential and common mode chokes
