Multilayer ceramic capacitors - What can be done in SimSurfing

The following introduces what can be done in SimSurfing for multilayer ceramic capacitors.

Finding the multilayer ceramic capacitors you are searching for

As shown below, multilayer ceramic capacitors can be searched from various conditions.

  1. Applications: Specify General /Automobile
  2. Specifications: Specify the capacitance, rated voltage, temperature characteristics (eg.: Temperature compensation type / high dielectric constant type), and size
  3. Characteristic values: Enter to specify the DC bias voltage, operating temperature, impedance range, effective capacitance, and ripple heat generation
  4. Murata Part Numbers

Confirming Characteristics

The various characteristics of multilayer ceramic capacitors can be displayed in graphs.

Impedance, ESR, reactance, Q, dielectric dissipation factor (tanδ), equivalent inductance, equivalent capacitance, transmission characteristics (S21), reflection characteristics (S11), DC bias characteristics, temperature characteristics, ripple heat generation characteristics, and AC voltage characteristics

In the graph, the characteristics can be compared easily, because the characteristics of multiple items can be overwritten.

* In the XY axis of the graph, the Linear/Log can be switched and the display range can be set.
Example of overwritten graphs
