General environment up to 125°C, up to 50V | General

For general environment (up to 125°C and 50V), we recommend you to choose a general type.

General type CGA Series

0603 to 5750 [mm] [EIA 0201 to 2220]
C0G, X7R, X7S
to 47μF/6.3 to 50V

High temperature / High voltage environment | High temperature / High voltage

We recommend you to choose a high temperature/high voltage type, which uses an optimal ceramic to withstand a high temperature and/or high voltage environments.

Risk reduction by mechanical stress | Redundant design

If you wish to reduce risks related to mechanical stress such as PCB bending, drop impact, thermal shock, and so on, we recommend you to choose a "redundant design type", with which a flexible resin layer or metal frame is implemented in the terminal electrode.

Risk reduction by mechanical stress + low resistance | Redundant design + low resistance

If you wish to reduce the risk by mechanical stress while suppressing rise of electric resistance,
we recommend "redundant design + low resistance" type which is realized by TDK's unique terminal design.

Reduction in the number of MLCCs mounted in series / Serial design type | Redundant design

If you wish to reduce the number of MLCCs mounted in series,
we recommend you to choose the serial design type which has 2 capacitor structures in series.

to 100nF/50 to 100V

Reduction in the number of decoupling MLCCs | Low ESL

If you wish to reduce the number of MLCCs for decoupling, we recommend you to choose a low ESL type, which has a unique structure for achieving low ESL and low impedance.

3-terminal feed through type

High frequency noise removal | Low-ESL

If you have difficulty in removing high frequency noise, we recommend you to choose a low ESL type, which has a unique structure for achieving low ESL and low impedance.

3-terminal feedthrough type

Conductive epoxy mounting | Conductive epoxy application

For conductive epoxy mounting, we recommend you to choose a special type for conductive epoxy application, which implements the Ag-Pd-Cu alloy terminal electrode that is compatible with conductive glue mounting.
