TDK Updates the Status of its Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor Product DivisionThe focus of this Update is the designation of product life cycles; with particular emphasis on the stage commonly referred to as NRND (Not Recommended for New Design). A list of part numbers so designated is attached below. It is important to convey that TDK is discouraging users from considering these products for application in future programs. Thank you for your business and continued interest in TDK’s ceramic capacitors. This letter is to update you on the current status of our Ceramic Capacitor Division with respect to our US Distribution portfolio.TDK has refined its MLCC product line for distribution to focus on leading edge and automotive grade products. TDK began this process in April 2016 by announcing many commercial part numbers as End of Life with associated Last Time Buy and EOL Dates.In addition to obsoleting these part numbers, TDK is advancing its efforts by designating product life cycle status.
