Ceramic capacitor offers high capacitance values

Wed, 06/27/2012 - 10:24am

Murata Americas today introduced two new multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCCs) series that contain metal terminal.  The KCM line is automotive grade, meeting AEC-Q200 requirements, while the KRM series is designed for commercial use.  Both offer high capacitance values (4.7uF to 47uF) plus a unique terminal design providing high reliability for thermal and mechanical stress while reducing acoustic noise. This makes each ideal for use in DC-DC converter noise suppression circuits in automotive and commercial environments.
The KCM and KRM series is available either in a single chip or double chip package. High capacitance can be achieved with the double chip package by stacking two MLCCs together. This solution provides valuable space savings, measuring only 6.1mm x 5.3mm x 6.4mm. Both the KRM series and the automotive KCM offer a rated voltage range of DC25 ~ 100V.

The KCM 22uF/25V is available for $1.20 while the KRM 22uF/25V is priced at $1.15. The lead time is approximately 12 weeks.
