Ceramic Capacitors FAQ

Characteristics

Which public standards do your chip multilayer ceramic capacitor products comply with?

As of April 2016, we apply the following public standards in our performance testing methods for the GRM series of general-purpose chip multilayer ceramic capacitors (Rated voltage of 100VDC and less):


JIS C5101-21 (IEC 60384-21): Fixed Surface-Mount Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors (Class 1)
JIS C5101-22 (IEC 60384-22): Fixed Surface-Mount Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors (Class 2)

To comply with public standards, we have changed some of our testing methods (conditions) and warranty terms. However, these changes in no way weaken our warranty terms and conditions. For details, please refer to Table 1 and Table 2 below.

For detailed specs sheets, please see the PDF datasheets in the results of our product search page, or visit the product information pages. For instructions on obtaining specifications, click here:
