Selected Category：Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors
AEC-Q200 is a test standard for certifying the reliability of passive components. It specifies the testing requirements and test quantities for each component.
MSL stands for Moisture Sensitivity Level, and is one of the standards developed by JEDEC. It has been established with the aim of preventing a phenomenon in which the sealing resin used primarily in semiconductors and similar components absorbs moisture from the atmosphere, which vaporizes during processes such as reflow soldering. This causes volumetric expansion which can lead to damage.
Our multilayer ceramic capacitor products that support flow soldering are those with size codes 31, 32, and 43.
When storing multilayer ceramic capacitors, keep the temperature to 40°C or less, and the humidity to 70% RH or less. Also avoid storing in locations with direct sunlight or high temperatures/humidity. The storage period is six months from the date of shipment.
When using multilayer ceramic capacitors, be careful not to apply a voltage in excess of the rated voltage. Please make sure that the sum of the DC voltage and peak voltage of the superimposed ripple current is less than the rated voltage.
We stipulate the rated ripple current values for our multilayer ceramic capacitors. The frequency range is 10 kHz to 1 MHz (the sine wave and ripple current Vp-p should be within the rated voltage).
The rated voltage and capacitance of our multilayer ceramic capacitors (radial lead type) are indicated on the first or second section. The lowest section shows the product lot number.
Bias characteristic refer to a phenomenon in which the effective capacitance of a ceramic capacitor changes when a voltage is applied.
