Here at Digi-Key we do not carry any of the affected series, however we do carry some of the recommended replacement series, links to those parts are provided below.

For replacements we do not carry a link to Kemet’s website for that series is provided if there was one available.

If the recommended replacement does not have a link it is not something we carry and does not come up in a basic search of the manufacturer website, this is typically because they are proprietary. Please contact the manufacturer directly if you need more information about those parts.
