TAIYO YUDEN Adds High-Frequency Medium-High Voltage Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors to its High-Reliability Product Lineup
Realizing the Industry's Highest Class Q-Value at a Rated Voltage of 250 V for Communications Equipment Used in Base Stations
(PresseBox) (Tokyo, )TOKYO, May 27, 2015 - TAIYO YUDEN CO., LTD. will commence with the commercialization of high-frequency medium-high voltage multilayer ceramic capacitors consisting of the QVS212 series (2.0 x 1.25 x 0.85 mm) and the QVS107 series (1.6 x 0.8 x 0.7 mm).
The products will primarily be used in industrial equipment that requires high reliability such as communications equipment for base stations, particularly for the purpose of impedance matching in the high-frequency circuits of wireless communications devices. The industry's highest class Q-values, at a rated voltage of 250 V for the same size, have been realized through improvement in the material technology and manufacturing process. Wide-ranging product
lineups comprising 54 items have been prepared for each size, contributing to reduced losses and improvement in the reliability of wireless communications devices.
Mass-production of the products will begin at the Tamamura Plant (Tamamura-machi, Sawa-gun, Gunma prefecture, Japan) in May 2015, with a cumulative production capacity for both sizes of 10 million pieces per month.
Against a backdrop of growth in global communications demand, including increasing data communications due to the proliferation of smartphones and support for new communications standards such as LTE, the demand for mobile communications base stations has been increasing in many countries.
This type of communications equipment used in base stations makes up important facilities that support rapidly advancing wireless communications technology and communications infrastructure. Electronics parts used in such equipment must therefore be highly reliable with low loss in order to realize high-speed wireless communications with high efficiency and stability. Under these circumstances, TAIYO YUDEN will commence with the commercialization of high-frequency medium-high voltage multilayer ceramic capacitors in two sizes with the QVS212 series and the QVS107 series by reassessing the materials used and improving the manufacturing process. In response to requests from the industrial equipment market where high reliability is a key factor, the products realize the industry's highest class Q-values at the high voltage of 250 V, thus contributing to loss reduction and improvement in the reliability of wireless communications devices.
TAIYO YUDEN is committed to further enhancing its product lineup, including size reduction of high-frequency medium-high voltage multilayer ceramic capacitors, as well as the development of high-reliability electronics parts for wireless communications devices.
