TDK develops Compact High-Capacitance Multilayer Ceramic Chip Capacitor for Mid-Voltage Applications

TDK has developed a multilayer ceramic chip capacitor with a rated voltage of 100V for mid-voltage applications.. The new product uses ceramic dielectric thin-layer technologies and multilayering technologies to improve capacitance to the industry’s highest levels in the mid-voltage range.

The new multilayer ceramic chip capacitor feature X7S temperature characteristics (operating temperature range: -55°C to 125°C; change in capacitance: ±22%), making them ideal for use in engine compartments as well as the switching power supply smoothing circuits1 needed for industrial equipments. Mass production and sales is scheduled to begin in July.
