What kind of ceramic capacitors are there?

There are various kind of ceramic capacitors. We are introducing following ceramic capacitors in our catalog.

* Capacitance range is as of November 2019.
Product Name Capacitance Range Description
Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors (High dielectric type) 100pF - 470uF

These products are intended mainly for power lines. They are best fit for backup and voltage smoothing.

Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors (Temperature compensating type) 0.2pF - 1000pF

Capacitance change by temperature and voltage are very small in these products. They are best fit for circuits that require fixed capacitance such as filters.

Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors for High Frequency Applications 0.2pF - 22pF

Since these products have low capacitance and high self-resonant frequency, they are fit for use in high frequency range. They also have low electrical loss, therefore, they are best fit for matching circuit, etc.

Super Low Distortion Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors 390pF - 0.1uF

These products are superior in electrical and mechanical strength and have high heat resistance. Therefore, shock noise and electrical distortion caused by them are small. They are fit for PLL and oscilator circuit, etc.

Low Distortion High Value Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors(CF_LD) 0.22uF - 10uF

These products have both low electrical distortion and high capacitance. They are effective for preventing self-ringing.

Medium-High Voltage Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors 8pF - 4.7uF

These products have high rated voltage. They are intended for high voltage lines.

LW Reversal Decoupling Capacitors (LWDCTM) 0.1uF - 22uF

Since these products have low ESR and ESL, they are superior in canceling ripple current and high frequency noise. They are best fit for decoupling, etc. They also have enough capacitance to be used for voltage smoothing circuit.

MLCC (High dielectric type) for Automotive (BODY & CHASSIS, INFOTAINMENT) Applications 220pF - 47uF

These products have higher reliability than products for general electronic equipment. They have enough reliability to be used for automotive electronic equipments for body and chassis, car infotainment system.

MLCC (Temperature compensating type) for Automotive (BODY & CHASSIS, INFOTAINMENT) Applications 0.2pF - 1000pF
Medium-High Voltage MLCC for Automotive (BODY & CHASSIS, INFOTAINMENT) Applications 220pF - 4.7uF
LW Reversal Decoupling Capacitors for Automotive (BODY & CHASSIS, INFOTAINMENT) Applications (LWDCTM) 0.1uF - 22uF
High Frequency Medium-High Voltage MLCC for Automotive (BODY & CHASSIS, INFOTAINMENT) Applications 0.2pF - 100pF

Q value in the high frequency range is superior compared to other types of multilayer capacitors. Small case sizes with high rated voltage.

Soft Termination MLCC for Automotive (BODY & CHASSIS, INFOTAINMENT) Applications 1000pF - 47uF

These products are intended for suppressing the crack by using conductive resin at external terminal to absorb the vibration, stress and thermal shock from the substrate.

MLCC for Automotive (POWERTRAIN, SAFETY) Applications 1000pF - 10uF

These products are intended for automotive electronic equipments for powertrain, safety system where high reliability is strongly required.

MLCC (High dielectric type) for Telecommunications infrastructure and Industrial equipment / Medical devices 220pF - 220uF

These products have higher reliability than products for general electronic equipment. They have enough reliability to be used for telecommunications infrastructure, industrial equipment and medical devices.

MLCC (Temperature compensating type) for Telecommunications infrastructure and Industrial equipment / Medical devices 0.2pF - 1000pF
Medium-High Voltage MLCC for Telecommunications infrastructure and Industrial equipment / Medical devices 220pF - 4.7uF
LW Reversal Decoupling Capacitors for Telecommunications infrastructure and Industrial equipment / Medical devices (LWDCTM) 0.1uF - 22uF
High Frequency Medium-High Voltage MLCC for Telecommunications infrastructure and Industrial equipment / Medical devices 0.2pF - 100pF
Soft Termination MLCC for Telecommunications infrastructure and Industrial equipment / Medical devices 1000pF - 47uF
