10microF MLCC claims a world first
Claimed to be the world’s-first 100V DC, 10microF MLCC, the GRM series capacitor, GRM32EC72A106KE05 1210 size capacitor has X7S characteristics and a K (±10 per cent) tolerance, says Murata.
It measures 3.2 x 2.5mm and has an operating temperature up to 125 degrees C. It is suited for use in the 48V DC power supply circuits of network equipment and basestations. In the past the required capacitance for these applications has typically been achieved by using two or more 2.2 and 4.7 microF capacitors. This introduction reduces the number of capacitors needed in space-constrained designs, says the company.
