The Essential element of the 4th Industrial Revolution, MLCC!
“The Essential element of the 4th Industrial Revolution, MLCC” The irreplaceable value of MLCC and its secrets!
Although our smartphones contain 800 to 1,000 of them, not many people know about multilayer ceramic condensers, or MLCCs. Today we will look at the MLCC and its importance to electronics.
MLCC in electronics : Smartphones 800–1,000, LED TV 2,000, PC 1,200
Because so many MLCCs go into a device, it is also referred to as the “rice” of electronics. But how small is it really?
Here we have the profile from our 0603 model
- Size 0.6×0.3 mm
- Thickness : 0.3 mm, approximately the thickness of a human hair
- Comparison : 1/250 of a single rice kernel
- Construction 500 to 600 layers of dielectric materials and electrodes
MLCC, as the pinnacle of cutting-edge technology, is a well-known high-value product.
A wine glass full of MLCCs costs KRW 100 million!
When using an electronic device, make sure that only as much current flows as you need. If there is a jumble of current in the circuit, it can lead to malfunction of component, that is, the failure of electronic device.
MLCC acts as a dam to store electricity around each electronic component and then send it out by a certain amount.
The MLCC is a necessary part of all electronic devices. More advanced devices such as electric vehicles (EV) require more MLCCs than others.
SEM, our friendly mascot of Samsung Electro-Mechanics, looks just like an MLCC. SEM is good friends with our other friend, Pani, who looks just like a printed circuit board (PCB). Despite the huge differences in size, the two are inseparable.
Samsung Electro-Mechanics is the leader of the global market in MLCCs. Keep up with us as we continue to go forward!
