MLCCs offer guaranteed high operating temperature ranges.

Press Release Summary:

In addition to guaranteed operating temperature of 105°C (X6S), 0402-size, 1 µF monolithic ceramic capacitor (MLCC) has rated voltage of 25 V. With guaranteed operating temperature of 125°C (X7S), 0805-size, 4.7 µF MLCC features rated voltage of 50 V. Both MLCCs are intended to be built into diverse types of electronic equipment.

Original Press Release:

Murata Adds MLCCs with Guaranteed Operating Temperatures of 105°C and 125°C

Hoofddorp, Netherlands: Murata today announced that they have commercialized the world's first 0402-size (1005-size metric 1.0 x 0.5mm) 1µF monolithic ceramic capacitor with a guaranteed operating temperature of 105°C (X6S) and a rated voltage of 25 V. In addition, Murata has also commercialized the world's first 0805-size (2012-size metric 2.0 x 1.25mm) 4.7µF monolithic ceramic capacitor with a guaranteed operating temperature of 125°C (X7S) and a rated voltage of 50 V.

Electronic equipment is becoming increasingly more advanced with an expanding range of functions, and, as a result, the operating temperatures of sets are increasing, raising the need for higher guaranteed operating temperatures and higher capacities. In response, Murata has successfully expanded the capacity of monolithic ceramic capacitors that are built into all kinds of electronic equipment, with guaranteed operating temperatures of 105°C and 125°C.

The capacitors are part of the existing GRM series line-up of monolithic ceramic capacitors (MLCC). Mass production commenced during April 2013.
