Leaded ceramic multilayer
• High capacitance per unit volume
• Low cost.
These conformally coated axial leaded
capacitors are designed for
commercial and industrial
applications in four dielectrics,
NP0 (ultra-stable), X7R (stable) and
Z5U, Y5V (general purpose).
Applications include timing,
comparison and biasing.
Mono-axial™ capacitors are suitable
for automatic insertion equipment.
The basic capacitor construction
consists of ceramic dielectric materials
processed into a tape
with a typical thickness range
from 0.025 to 0.076 mm. Metal
electrode patterns are applied using a
thick film screening process. Multiple
layers are stacked and laminated in
such a manner that electrodes are
alternately exposed when the pattern is
cut into individual chip capacitors.
The capacitors are fired through a high
temperature profile to mature the
ceramic and metal into a
Metal end terminations are applied
and fired to provide electrical
connection between the individual
layers. Tinned leads are attached using
a solder. Encapsulation consists of a
moisture resistant gold colour
conformal epoxy coating that meets
the flame requirements of “UL94V-0”.
