Taiyo Yuden has announced the launch of its 1005-size (0402) three-terminal MLCC A3K105BBJ106MR (1.0 × 0.5 × 0.5 mm, capacitance 10μF, rated voltage 4.0 V). Target applications are small, thin and light devices such as IoT-related devices, smartphones and wearable devices.

he ESL of the three-terminal MLCC is lower than that of the popular double-ended MLCC, which can reduce the impedance in the high frequency range and contribute to the stable operation of the high speed driving IC. Compared with the conventional product A3K105KBJ106MV (1.0×0.5×0.65 mm), the thickness of A3K105BBJ106MR is reduced by about 23%, which helps to further reduce the thickness of small and thin electronic devices. This product will be used as a decoupling capacitor for IC power lines to meet the needs of smaller, thinner devices.

The production of the A3K105BBJ106MR has started production at the Tamamura plant of Taiyo Yuden this month, with a production of 5 million pieces per month.
