In this Webinar we will discuss the changes to be implemented to move from 4G to 5G, and later we will cover the requirements of the market in terms of passive components for 5G. Finally,  we will introduce what Panasonic can offer in terms of Capacitance and the benefits these components can offer to the end application. Besides this, we will explain the advantages of Polymer over MLCCs where they are completely replaced or combined with. In addition, we will show some application examples in which these replacements resulted in cost and space-saving on the designs.


  • 5G Base Station Outline - Trends and changes from 4G to 5G
  • Panasonic Polymer Capacitors Information - Panasonic Polymer capacitors and their advantages over MLCCs in the designs
  • Applications and Proposal - Some examples of applications

What you will Learn by attending:

  • Overview of 5G and how it compares and contrasts with previous generations.
  • The implication this has on the choice of components and the requirements it places on them.
  • Explain technical characteristics needed in terms of space, temperature, ESR, profile, Voltage and lifetime.
  • Compare and contrast Polymer Capacitors with other solutions on the market and show their advantages
