MLCC quality may suffer in refocus to meet demand

Industrial, medical, and military demand for high quality, high-voltage multi-layer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) has been hit hard by a shift in production by the world’s largest MLCC manufacturers who are focusing on a seemingly insatiable demand for smaller, lower voltage – and in some way – lower performance MLCCs, says EPSNews.

“As the principal manufacturers pivot away from the larger high voltage, high Q (High Quality) MLCCs used by industry and the military, OEMs are experiencing significant delays in MLCCs of up to six months. The extent of the supply shortage jeopardizes product release schedules, industrial market share, and potentially even military readiness,” reports EPS.

According to Scott Horton, VP at MLCC manufacturer, Johanson Technology, the lack of supply of larger, higher voltage MLCCs for industrial and military applications are typically under-reported. “It will continue to squeeze business customers,” said Horton.
