Advantages of Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors

Highly reliable products in small case size have been achieved with using all ceramic devices in electrical circuits

High-reliability and a reduced size can be achieved by utilizing multilayer ceramic capacitors with a lower ESR and ESL than electrolytic capacitors in power supply circuits.

Uniform production process that starts from material development and extends through high accuracy printing and lamination technologies

Multilayer ceramic capacitors are ultra-small and low profile, using a multilayered structure which internally alternates ceramic and electrode layers. TAIYO YUDEN uses its strengths in material development for commercialization and similarly invests its technical capabilities into printing and lamination technologies, while continuing to develop high-quality and high-reliability multilayer ceramic capacitors.
Terminal electrode Internal electrode Ceramic dielectric substance
  • (1) Material technology
    • Particle size distribution through a core shell structure
    • Ultrafine powder
    • Raw material particulate matter
      Organic binder, solvent
    • Slurry regime
    • Dielectric sheet
  • (2) Printing technology
    • Internal electrode pressure is in a thin and uniform state
    • Internal electrode printing
  • (3) Lamination technology
    • Multilayer, bonding -> cutting, separation
    • Firing, external terminal electrode formation
    • Sn plating

Deploying production bases in various places around the world to ensure a stable production system

TAIYO YUDEN's multilayer ceramic capacitors are produced in Japan as well as Malaysia, South Korea, and China. We will continue to propose higher value added products to the market at a rapid pace through strategic site deployment close to the markets we serve and a global division of labor through mutual cooperation between those sites.
