Reason

Lead type multilayer ceramic capacitors reduce the risk of short circuit mode failures

Did you know? Leaded products are chosen for this reason.

Reason 3Contributes to space-saving designs by replacing a film capacitor

* There are cases where a film capacitor is recognized as a "film capacitor having self-restoration ability that will not cause short circuit mode failures." However, when an over voltage is continuously applied to a film capacitor for a long period, dielectric breakdown will not be restored and eventually fails by short circuit mode.

Select leaded products to reduce the risk of short circuit mode failures.

There is no longer a concern that "ceramic capacitors cannot be used because short circuits occur."
Lead type multilayer ceramic capacitors can be used to reduce the risk of short circuit mode failures.

The following page provides examples of safely replacing a large film capacitor with a ceramic capacitor in a power supply circuit.
