The new CGA series achieves smaller sizes and higher capacitance than our conventional products, allowing a reduction in the number of MLCC components, and enabling space-saving designs. TDK will continue to extend the product range and serve the growing range of automotive applications.
Multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) have emerged as a perfect component for EV electronics and subsystems since these tiny capacitors have high temperature and offer an easy surface-mount form factor
Prevention of damage to the electronic circuit can be accomplished using multiple suppression devices. Multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) are one of the solutions used to protect components from ESD damage. Since integrated circuits (ICs) are most prone to damage by ESD, MLCCs are placed close to the board connection contacts or directly next to the IC connections in order to absorb and then level the unwanted voltage spikes.
Judging from equipment shipment pull-ins in the first half of 2020, investments by Chinese passive components makers are at least five times as much as those by their Taiwanese peers, aiming to better tap demand for 5G base station, handset and new energy vehicle applications, the sources said.
Multi-layer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) have been the go-to choice for surface-mounted capacitors due to their many advantages, such as wide available capacitance range, non-polarity, low ESR, and low cost. Most designers know that the effective capacitance of Class II MLCCs can be reduced significantly when dc bias is applied across the capacitor.
Tantalum polymer capacitors are expanding their market share in the defence and aerospace market because they offer superior electrical performance (primarily much lower ESR), have outstanding reliability, and display a more benign failure response than the incumbent MnO2-cathode tantalum capacitor technology.
Ceramic capacitors come in small packages but that doesn’t mean they’re not capable of large voltages. Successfully creating and designing in HV ceramic capacitors takes great care and discipline. This webinar explores those applications and techniques.
