The Industry's First 4V/100µF Tantalum Capacitors in the 1608 Size
To meet the demand for greater miniaturization, particularly for mobile electronics such as mobile phones, digital cameras/camcorders and portable audio players, which utilize a large number of tantalum capacitors in the power and audio circuit blocks, ROHM has optimized the internal configuration and fabrication methods to develop a high efficiency bottom electrode structure that maximizes capacitance in a minimal form factor. The result is the industry's first 4V/100µF tantalum capacitor in the M Case - 3 times the capacitance as conventional bottom electrode products - significantly reducing circuit footprint and featuring excellent mountability. Reliability is secured through its superior temperature and DC bias characteristics, preventing combustion and damage to peripheral components. The solution is also ideal for noise removal in power supply lines.
The lineup consists of six models in the P Case, ranging from 20V/10µF to 2.5V/330µF, and four types in the M Case, which range from 16V/10µF to 4V/100µF. The product is available now.
ROHM is currently working on developing an even smallersized capacitor (1005: U Case), with fullscale production targeted for later this year.
