Ceramic Capacitors FAQ

Mounting

What is the defense against distortion crack of Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors?

If a chip type multilayer ceramic capacitor is handled correctly, no cracks whatever will occur. However, the capacitor is made of ceramic, and has been fired just like a porcelain cup or plate, so it will crack if an excessively large mechanical force is applied to it.
Measures to prevent strain cracks are carried out from the aspects of board design and process control.
