Taiyo Yuden (U.S.A.) Inc.'s high capacity (over 100µF) multilayer ceramic capacitor line continues to grow in capacity and number. With the introduction of the first commercially available XR5/X6S 330µF-capacitance EIA 1210 size AMK325ABJ337MM (3.2 x 2.5 x 2.5mm), Taiyo Yuden has improved capacitance by over 50% in the same size capacitor as compared to its product AMK325ABJ227MM (220µF capacitance).
High value MLCCs are designed to replace electrolytic capacitors and offer significant downsizing and better performance. They are intended for use in power supply circuits to smooth ripple current and reduce noise, especially in demanding or high frequency power circuits.
In addition to the 330µF EIA 1210 MLCC, Taiyo Yuden now offers the 150µF capacitance XR5, EIA 1206 size AMK316BBJ157ML (3.2 x 1.6 x 1.6mm). Both versions provide low ESR and low impedances at high frequencies. These capacitors further enhance the company's wide line up of high value (over 100µF) MLCC in case sizes EIA 1210, 1206 and 0805.
Taiyo Yuden in-house ceramic material development and material fabrication techniques enable the company to create smaller MLCCs that provide more reliable performance than electrolytic capacitors or than using multiple MLCCs.
Applications for high value MLCCs include information-related devices like PCs and servers, and all-in-one printers.
