KYOCERA CORP.: Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors for Smartphones
Kyocera Corp. recently announced that it has developed multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) for use in telecommunication equipment, including smartphones. The 4.7 μF MLCC in a 0201 case size and the 0.47 μF MLCC in a 01005 case size reportedly deliver double the capacitance of the conventional 0201 and 01005 MLCCs while maintaining the same sizes, which enables greater device functionality in a smaller space. Kyocera reportedly achieved high capacitance for these sizes of MLCCs through a stable multilayer structure made by reducing the thickness of the dielectric material using Kyocera’s nanomaterial technology and highly accurate processing technology. Both will be available on a sample basis in October 2016.
