A 330 μF multilayer ceramic capacitor from Taiyo Yuden

September 25, 2013 // By Graham Prophet
Taiyo Yuden has announced a 330 μF-capacitance EIA 1210 size AMK325ABJ337MM (3.2 x 2.5 x 2.5 mm) as an addition to its super high-end product group of high-capacity multilayer ceramic capacitors (over 100μF).

This increases capacitance by over 50% in the same size capacitor as compared to the AMK325ABJ227MM (200 μF capacitance). The large capacitance 330 μF super high-end product is believed to be the first of its kind.

Generally, multilayer ceramic capacitors have a low ESR and superior frequency characteristics as compared to tantalum or aluminium electrolytic capacitors and are effective as smoothing capacitors for controlling the ripple current in increasingly high-frequency power circuits. Taiyou Yuden says it will continue to make further additions to its line-up of super high-end, high capacity multilayer ceramic capacitor products with a capacitance in excess of 100 μF, and intends to progress to 1000μF.
