Miniature MLCCs help reduce pcb size

The new Murata GRM Series of 1206 and 1210 size monolithic ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) are now available in Europe at TTI. As electronic products need to deliver ever-greater levels of functionality within smaller devices, the available component space becomes increasingly constrained, creating a growing demand for high capacity, miniature capacitors.

For applications above 100µF, polymer capacitors used to be the only choice, as high capacitance values were not available in MLCCs.

Murata’s new GRM Series 1206 and 1210 MLCCs deliver high capacitance with low ESR in small case sizes and can help electronic designers reduce overall space requirements, aiding PCB miniaturisation.

The capacitors are offered with Nickel (Ni) barrier termination, plated with Matt Tin (Sn), and are RoHS compliant. Specifications include capacitance of 220 µF ±20%, rated voltage of 2.5VDC and a capacitance change rate of ±22.0%. The temperature range of GRM Series MLCCs is -55degC to +105degC.

Available in case sizes L, W and T, the MLCCs suit many applications, including decoupling on low voltage rails for programmable logic, and processors, servers, network and data communications infrastructure. They are available in tape and reel packaging for automatic placement.
