SEOUL, June 29 (Yonhap) -- Samsung Electro-Mechanics Co., a major electronics components maker in South Korea, on Tuesday said it has developed a high-capacity multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) to be applicable to 5G devices.

The company said its new 1005-size (length 1mm and width 0.5mm) MLCC boasts the industry's largest power capacity of 27 microfarads. The existing 1005-size MLCC only has a capacity of 22 microfarads, according to Samsung Electro-Mechanics.

MLCC is a core component within electric devices that controls the stable flow of current within electric product circuits. Along with the 0603-size MLCC, the 1005-size MLCC is the most commonly used MLCC for smartphones.

Samsung Electro-Mechanics said it plans to supply its new 1005-size MLCC to global smartphone makers starting next month.

Samsung Electro-Mechanics applied 50-nanometer powder to stack more paraelectric layers and used nanoparticulate powder processing technology to increase the MLCC's capacity.

The latest MLCC is also equipped with an advanced noise-reducing solution for semiconductors, according to the company.
