MGSC Series

Medical grade capacitor

The Murata* MGSC capacitors target all critical implantable devices and life support solutions. The deep trench MOS capacitors manufactured in Murata ISO-13485 certified facility, combined with a unique Mosaic design and distributed trench capacitors drive to an unprecedented level of electrical performances. Thanks to the purity of the oxide cured at a temperature of 900℃ during the manufacturing process, Murata is now offering a range of capacitors tested as per the AEC-Q100 specifications. Moreover, due to the criticality of the applications, a specific 100% screening is done on all manufactured capacitors to avoid any « early life » defects. The very low leakage current enables to improve the performances of battery based applications and increase their lifetime. The SiCap technology features high reliability - better than alternative ceramic capacitor technologies - coupled with stability and low profile. The MGSC capacitors offer enhanced decoupling performances compared with standard external SMD solutions, and can be integrated directly into the implantable devices.
