Development of Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors by TDK-EPC
This is a new series of multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC) with C0G temperature characteristics and a rated voltage of 50 V by TDK-EPC. The new MLCC are 60% smaller than existing products offering a same capacitance. The new products with three times the capacitance of existing TDK MLCCs, has the industry’s highest capacitance in the 50 V rated voltage range of C0G.
The new C0G MLCCs has a temperature coefficient of 0 ± 30 ppm/°C over the complete operating temperature range of -55 to 125 degrees Celsius, making them ideal for use in applications that require highly accurate capacitors such as time constant and oscillator circuits. They will be ideal for snubber circuits and EMI filtering in power supplies of automotive electronic control units (ECU), consumer electronics, as well as industrial equipment. The new capacitors can be considered as a replacement for film capacitors in some general consumer electronics applications. The company has already started the mass production of these new capacitors.
