  • Invisible driver of changes,
    The essential element of the 4th industrial revolution, MLCC

  • MLCC (Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors)

    MLCC is ‘the essential ingredient for the electronics industry’ It goes in all of the electronic goods we know!
    MLCC plays the role of a “dam” by storing and distributing a certain amount of electricity. It controls the amount of current flowing through the circuits of an electronic device and prevents electromagnetic interference among parts!
    The invisible driver of change, MLCC. Let’s learn more about it!

  • MLCC (Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors)

    The difference of MLCC technology is piling up a lot of small and thin layers.
    1. Size : Width 0.6 mm, Length 0.3 mm
    2. Thickness : The thickness of a hair, 0.3 mm
    3. Comparison : 1/250 of a grain of rice (15 mm)

    Inside an MLCC is layers of ceramic and metal (nickel). Model 0603 has the thickness of a hair (0.3 mm) and includes up to 600 layers! The thinner and greater the amount of layers, the more electricity it can accumulate. This technology is why the barriers to entry for the MLCC market is high. ^^

  • The functions of MLCC in smartphones

    MLCC transmits only the required amount of current, when it’s necessary! A single cutting edge smartphone contains a whopping 1,000 MLCCs.
    MLCC, a mini battery that distributes only the required amount of current when necessary, removes noise in smartphones and prevents malfunctions.

  • The features of MLCC in smartphones

    High performance
    High integration
    High functionality

    Number of subminiature, high capacity MLCC
    Despite increasing features, smartphones need to be thin and strong!

    High performance, high functionality, and high integration in smartphones have led to subminiature and high capacity MLCC. This is because there is limited space inside of a smartphone, even though they need a bigger batteries and more ICs!
    Plus, the high performance and multiple functions of smartphones have increased the number of MLCCs required for 1 device. It must employ many more small but strong MLCCs!

  • Rapid electrification of vehicles

    Vehicles are being electrified!
    Accordingly, in the era of smart cars, MLCC for car electronics has become even more important than IT or mobile devices.

  • Rapid electrification of vehicles

    With accelerating electrification, the market for MLCC for car electronics is expected to grow dramatically by 2030.
    Samsung Electro-Mechanics is also focusing on car electronics MLCC.

  • 3 characteristics of Samsung Electro-Mechanics’ MLCC for car electronics

    Key points for car electronics
    1. High reliability
    2. High temperature
    3. High voltage

    MLCC for car electronics need to function at extremely harsh conditions that include high temperatures, vibrations, and humidity, and the importance of high-voltage MLCC increases according to increasing motor output. The three points are the key factors of Samsung Electro-Mechanics’ MLCC for car electronics!

  • Leading the way to the 4th industrial revolution!

    With the 5G era almost upon us, MLCC are expected to become even more important given the advancement and expansion of electronics, autonomous vehicles, and IoT.

  • No. 1 in Korea and No. 2 in the world, Samsung Electro-Mechanics!

    The core of high technology with high barriers to entry, MLCC!
    Samsung Electro-Mechanics is committed to becoming the No. 1 MLCC manufacturer in the world through continuous research and development!
