An easy to understand explanation of TAIYO YUDEN's "multilayer ceramic capacitors."

Product development based on strategic directions in the capacitor market which is expected to see a continued increase in demand

In addition to multilayer ceramic capacitors, there are also electrolytic capacitors and film capacitors. Due to the acceleration in the shift to energy conservation and the Internet of Things, the demand for high-performance capacitors is expected to increase over the medium to long-term. In particular, multilayer ceramic capacitors are essential for creating miniature and high performance electronic devices. TAIYO YUDEN offers a broad lineup of small size, low profile, high capacitance value, and high reliability products from the initial materials used to development and production to meet customer needs.

Advantages of Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors

TAIYO YUDEN's multilayer ceramic capacitors are produced at locations in Japan and other Asian countries They require advanced technologies and production systems to accurately layer several hundred dielectric sheets with a thickness of 1 μm (1/1000 mm or approximately 1/100th the thickness of hair) or less. This section introduces the advantages of TAIYO YUDEN's multilayer ceramic capacitors.
  • Size: 0.25 x 0.125 mm
  • High-frequency type
High technical capabilities and an abundant lineup
  • High value: up to 1000 μF
  • Small size: 0.25 x 0.125 mm and above
  • Low profile: 0.064 mm and above

Technical Information

Ultra-low distortion and low distortion (noise suppression)
The dielectric substance of ceramic capacitors with a high dielectric constant tends to deform (warp) when a voltage is applied. Therefore, when a voltage in the audible frequency range (20 Hz to 20 kHz) is applied to a ceramic capacitor, the ceramic capacitor vibrates, and that vibration is transmitted to the substrate where it is amplified and generates noise.
TAIYO YUDEN has prepared "low-distortion high-value multilayer ceramic capacitors (CF_LD)," "framed multilayer ceramic capacitors," and "LW reversal multilayer ceramic capacitors (LWDC™)" products for noise suppression.
The MLCC warps due to the load voltage and vibrates when the AC signal is applied.

Small Amplitude suppression Vibration absorption Low-distortion material
Low ESL
Making internal current paths of components thicker and shorter (ESL reduction) reduces impedance and dedicates stable operation of high-speed driven ICs.
