Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd.’s production subsidiary Okayama Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (Setouchi City, Okayama Prefecture) has been expanding its welfare and energy buildings Construction of a new production building was initiated in December 2019 and was just recently completed. A ceremony was held for the new production building on January 20, 2021.
As lead times grow, expect the MLCC market to tighten throughout 2021. By TTI’s vice president of product and supplier marketing, Jeff Ray.After a prolonged lull during 2019 and most of 2020, the supply of MLCCs is beginning to tighten. Lead times are extending across many case sizes and suppliers, both in commercial and automotive-grade components.
Empower Semiconductor, the world leader in Integrated Voltage Regulators (IVR), today announced a breakthrough with the highest performance, most configurable, and smallest commercially available range of capacitors. E-CAP™ is a vastly superior performing capacitor, far exceeding the semiconductor industry’s previously leading Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCC).
The Neutrino Energy Group continues to innovate new neutrino-based energy technologies that will take the pressure off of potentially problematic sustainable energy sources. At the same time, top energy scientists are proposing new methods for storing electricity in electromagnetic capacitors, which eliminate battery waste and last indefinitely. In the near future, these technologies will combine to usher in a new era of global energy that is both fully renewable and truly clean.
Yageo Corp (國巨), the nation’s largest passive components supplier, on Saturday broke ground for a new plant in Kaohsiung that is expected to begin commercial production in 2022.Yageo chairman Pierre Chen (陳泰銘) told the groundbreaking ceremony that it would be the company’s first new plant in the city in 15 years as it embarks on a plan to move its high-end technology production back home from overseas.The plant, which is expected to be completed in August 2022, would produce passive components, such as chip resistors, inductors and multi-layer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs), starting in October that year, Yageo said.
Passive component vendor Yageo has announced net profits surged 10.1% sequentially and 80% on year to NT$3.63 billion (US$127.1 million) in the third quarter of 2020, with EPS reaching NT$7.37.Yageo’s net profits for the first three quarters of 2020 totaled NT$9.27 billion, rising 55.5% on year. EPS for the nine-month period came to NT$20.03, compared with NT$14.26 during the same period in 2019.Yageo posted a 37.4% gross margin in the third quarter of 2020, up 6.4pp on year. Gross margin for the first three quarters of the year arrived at 40.1%, up 3.6pp from the same period in 2019.

The global value of passive electronic component shipments increased by more than 10 percent in the September 2020 quarter due to strong sales for multilayered ceramic chip capacitors (MLCC) consumed in 5G handsets and a revival in automobile production.A combination of revised guidance from major passive component manufacturers, coupled with some early financial reporting by major MLCC manufacturers, has revealed a surge in component demand impacting the global supply chain on a quarter-to-quarter basis.
CDE Cornell Dubilier Electronics, Inc. announces a major product expansion of standard and custom high energy storage, pulse-discharge capacitors. These are specialized devices, designed for applications requiring repetitive high energy and high voltage charge/discharge cycles.
Researchers at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign have devised a method of combining capacitors and inductors in a tiny, 3D rolled membrane. This will save space in the electronic filters found in phones and other wireless devices. They eliminate or enhance specific input signals to get the best output signals. While essential, these filters take up space on the chips that researchers are constantly trying to make smaller.
By introducing defects to a common ceramic material, Berkeley Lab researchers create a highly efficient capacitor with dramatically increased energy density.
This MarketEYE article discusses the subject of supercapacitors from a perspective of 25 years of behind-the-scenes consulting on markets, technologies and opportunities related to double layer carbon and mixed metal oxide components, operating at the maximum available capacitance range.
This article reveals how the global markets for capacitors and resistors reacted to the global pandemic of 2020 and forecasts near term changes in the markets for mass produced components such as capacitors and resistors that are ubiquitous and mission-critical to the high-tech economy.
