One Device Provides the Capacitance of Two Typical 0402 Components
Taiyo Yuden’s AMK105BJ475MV multi-layer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) is designed for decoupling power-line circuits in high-performance ICs used in cell phones, digital still cameras and other battery-powered portable electronics. The AMK105BJ is a MLCC that achieves a capacitance rating of 4.7 µF in the 1.0 × 0.5 × 0.5 mm (EIA 0402) case size. The AMK105BJ allows designers to obtain the desired capacitance value from a single 0402-size device, where two 2.2 µF-rated 0402 capacitors were previously required. This saves cost and simplifies manufacturability by reducing parts count by 50% for this application. Moreover, the AMK105BJ allows designers to downsize from 0603 size components (1.6 × 0.8 × 0.8 mm) to the more compact 0402 size, resulting in space savings of 76% (volume) and 61%(area) without sacrificing device performance.
