KYOCERA Developed Some of World’s Smallest Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors for Mobile Devices
In response to this demand, KYOCERA’s new CM01 Series’ ultra-compact size will help circuit designers create more capable and functional products. The new MLCCs feature tight tolerances on key specifications, with an industry-leading*2 Q-value*3 which is 20 % higher than conventional MLCCs*4 to meet the rising demand for highly efficient power amplifier modules. KYOCERA will continue to develop innovative products that contribute to an expanding IoT (Internet of Things) society. KYOCERA Corporation announced end of 2017 that it has developed new multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) for mobile device applications in a 008004 case size, among the world’s smallest. Measuring just 0,25 mm × 0,125 mm × 0,125 mm, Kyocera’s new CM01 Series MLCCs reduce space requirements by 60 % in surface area and 75 % in total volume as compared to conventional products. Ultra-miniature, high-Q devices offer new potential for creating smaller, more functional smartphones, wearables and related equipment. The new MLCCs are now available worldwide.
