C-Series Mid Voltage MLCCs

C-Series Mid Voltage MLCCs

With a rated voltage of 100 to 630 V for mid-voltage applications, TDK's multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCC) use ceramic, dielectric, thin-layer and multi-layering technologies to improve capacitance to the industry’s highest levels in the mid-voltage range.

As the fundamental driving performance of electronic equipment and devices improves, there is a substantial increase in the use of electronic passive components. In addition, next-generation eco-friendly electronics that can contribute to reducing environmental impact through better efficiency and lower emissions have attracted considerable attention. Amidst these developments, the number of electronic components installed in limited space is increasing, and market demand is rising for components that can contribute to the miniaturization of capacitance. TDK is responding to these market needs by using its strengths in materials and multi-layering technologies to reduce the gaps between ceramic dielectric layers by approximately 40% compared to earlier products.

These products feature C0G and X7R temperature characteristics (operating temperature range: -55°C to 125°C), making them ideal for use in automotive engine compartments, switching power supply smoothing circuits needed for industrial equipment, as well as circuits requiring higher voltages than traditional sub 100 V rated MLCC's.
