Schaumburg, Ill. Taiyo Yuden (U.S.A.) Inc. has announced production availability of its AMK105BJ475MV multi-layer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) for decoupling power-line circuits in high-performance ICs used in cell phones, digital still cameras and other battery-powered portable electronics. This device offers a 4.7 uF capacitance rating in a 0402 case size, which is twice the capacitance of previous 0402-size capacitors, thanks to 30 percent thinner dielectric layers.
The AMK105BJ475MV also allows designers to downsize from 0603 size components (1.6 - 0.8 - 0.8mm) to the smaller 0402 size, resulting in a space savings of 76 percent (volume) and 61 percent (area) without sacrificing device performance. The ceramic capacitor offers ±20% tolerance and a rated voltage of 4 Vdc. The operating temperature range is -55°C to 85°C. The device is RoHS compliant.
Pricing: $0.15 each in OEM quantities
Availability: Four weeks ARO
