PARIS TDK-EPC Corporation launched a new series of multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC) with C0G temperature characteristics and a rated voltage of 50V, 60 percent smaller than existing products with the same capacitance according to the manufacturer.
With three times the capacitance of existing TDK MLCCs, the new products will have the world’s highest capacitance in the 50V rated voltage range for C0G characteristics, that is, a temperature coefficient of no more than 0 ± 30 ppm/°C over the complete operating temperature range from -55°C to +125°C.
With the new series, TDK-EPC is meeting the market demand for miniaturization in automotive and consumer applications.
Using specialized thin-layer and multilayer technologies it developed new ceramic dielectric materials that enable the spacing between the ceramic dielectric layers to be reduced by approximately 30 percent.
The new components can be used in applications that require highly accurate capacitors such as time constant and oscillator circuits.
They are also suited for use in snubber circuits and EMI filtering in power supplies of automotive electronic control units (ECU), consumer electronics, and industrial equipment.
The new ceramic capacitors can also replace film capacitors in some general consumer electronics applications.
