TAIYO YUDEN CO., LTD. announced the commercialization of 11 1005-size MLCCs, including the HMR105 B7103KV (1.0 x 0.5 x 0.5 mm, with a rated voltage of 100 V and a capacitance of 0.01 μF).

TAIYO YUDEN achieves a rated voltage of 100 V for 1005-size automotive MLCC-SemiMedia

Compared with the traditional product UMR105 B7103KV (1.0 x 0.5 x 0.5 mm, with a rated voltage of 50 V and a capacitance of 0.01 μF), Taiyo Yuden has adopted advanced materials and process technology to increase the rated voltage to 100 V, and has achieved approximately a 75% reduction in size compared to 1608-size (1.6 x 0.8 x 0.8 mm) conventional product HMR107 B7103KA (rated voltage of 100 V, capacitance of 0.01 μF). The product is compatible with AEC-Q200, a reliability test qualification standard for automotive passive components.

The products launched will be used for power line anti-noise parts that can be used in on-board devices for automotive power trains such as engines and transmissions.

Production of the multilayer ceramic capacitors commenced at the company's Tamamura Plant (Tamamura-machi, Sawa-gun, Gunma Prefecture, Japan) from December 2019 at a production rate of ten million units per month, with a sample price of 5 yen ($0.046) per unit.
