Prosperity Dielectrics Co. Ltd, a manufacturer of multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC), chip resistors, and ceramic dielectric powders, has disclosed several expansion plans this year.

Company VP Edmund Chen said Prosperity Dielectrics will launch a BME-process line for manufacturing MLCCs early next year (2003). Mass production is set to begin during 2H of the same year. The company's current monthly capacity is 600 million units of MLCCs.

The company boosted its chip resistor capacity to 1.44 billion units per month from 1.2 billion units. In addition, Prosperity is scheduled to increase its disk-type semiconductor-capacitor element capacity by 15 percent at the end of this month. The capacity is expected to reach 350 million units. The products will be sold to China, South Korea, and Japan.

At the end of this month, Prosperity Dielectric aims to double its ceramic dielectric powder capacity to 50 tons per month. About 70 to 80 percent of this output will go to local MLCC companies, China, and South Korea.

According the company, it has no plans of expanding its ceramic dielectric powder designed for use in disk-type capacitors. Chen said the monthly capacity will remain 150 tons. He noted, "The increase in capacity for chip resistors and ceramic dielectric powders will bring an extra $588,235 expense per month."
