◇ Reduce high-frequency power noise and minimize components lab with 3-socket structure
◇ Realized the thinnest 0.65mm thickness for 1209-sized 3-socket MLCC within the industry
- Applied independent thin layer molding technology and superfine additive technology
◇ Expand recruiting for 5G smartphones necessary for fast processing speed, minimization, and high density integration
Samsung Electro-Mechanics revealed on the 20th that it developed the 0.65mm ultra-slim 3-socket MLCC, which is 18% thinner than previous products, and began supplying them to global smartphone companies.
※ MLCC is a core component within electric devices that controls the stable flow of current within electric product circuits and is necessary for related products, including smartphones, home appliance products, and automobiles.
※ 3-socket MLCC adds one additional earth socket to the general MLCC and is a product that allows for easy reduction in high-frequency power noise.
There has been an increase in requests for slimmer components with the increase in the number of components and reduction in thickness of recent smartphones, with multi-functional and high-performance requirements, including 5G mobile communication and multi-cameras.
The slim 3-socket MLCC, developed by Samsung Electro-Mechanics, is the thinnest among 1209-size 3-socket MLCC, with size of 1209 (length 1.2mm, width 0.9mm) and thickness of 0.65mm. Previous products had width of 0.8mm due to limitations in minimizing the internal dielectric layer. Samsung Electro-Mechanics increased the freedom of smartphone design by reducing the previous thickness by 18% by applying independent thin layer molding technology and superfine dielectric layer.
In particular, given the characteristics of the 5G smartphone, which has high-processing speed, it is a component that has added earth sockets to efficiently remove high-frequency noise occurring from the AP (Application Processor) power unit, and it has increased internal space efficiency by replacing 1 3-socket MLCC with 3~4 general MLCCs.
※ socket (端子): The end area that is attached in order to attach the electrode to the input or output area of the current for electric circuits or electric devices
※ earth (接地): connecting to the ground or reference point by means of a conductor (an object capable of electricity flow) in an electrical circuit or part of an electrical equipment
Doo Young Kim, Head of the Component Unit at Samsung Electro-Mechanics, revealed, “There has been a massive increase in miniature, high-performance, and highly-reliable MLCC demand with the commercialization of 5G mobile communication and electrification of automobiles. Samsung Electro-Mechanics will secure a leading position in the market by strengthening its distinctive technology, including the internal development of core materials and internalization of equipment, and manufacturing capabilities”.
Samsung Electro-Mechanics began its MLCC business since 1988, and it has been 2nd in the world in market share in the IT sector. In particular, it has received recognition across the industry for its technology regarding miniaturization and lamination. Samsung Electro-Mechanics plans to expand market share and product.
