Samsung Electro-Mechanics announced on the 23rd that it has developed a high-capacity, high-voltage MLCC (Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor) for the 5th generation (5G) mobile communication base station.

MLCC is a key component that controls current to flow stably in electronic device circuits such as smartphones, home appliances, and automobiles.

5G communication uses a high frequency band to process large amounts of data at high speed. Compared to the 4th generation (4G) LTE, 5G communication base stations require a lot of transmitting and receiving antennas and parts, and also increase power consumption and heat generation. Accordingly, the MLCC installed in the 5G communication base station must be of high capacity and high voltage for stable power supply without occupying much space.

Samsung Electro-Mechanics explained that the MLCC developed this time can supply energy to high-performance semiconductors quickly and stably by realizing a high capacity of 10uF (microfarad) with a size of 3225 (3.2mm in width and 2.5mm in length). In addition, two or three low-capacity MLCCs can be replaced with one, reducing the area occupied by parts. In addition, 100V rated voltage (the highest voltage that can be withstood without damage) is implemented to be safely applied to 5G communication base stations, and the MLCC is designed to operate normally despite environmental changes such as external shocks and vibrations, temperature and humidity.

Doo-Young Kim, Vice President of Samsung Electro-Mechanics’ Component Business Division (Vice President) said, “The demand for high-performance and high-reliability MLCCs is also increasing significantly as the demand for 5G communication base station equipment is increasing. We will maintain our leading position in the market by strengthening our capabilities.”
