MLCCs - Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors


MLCCs- Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors


Multilayer ceramic capacitors are commonly known as MLCCs they comprise of alternating layers of ceramic material and metal conducting layers. The ceramic layers insulate the capacitor, reducing the loss of energy in the form of heat. These capacitors have high thermal stability, high ripple current capability and also extremely low ESR (equivalent series resistance) and ESL (Equivalent Series Inductance)


MLCCs come in standard case sizes i.e. 0402, 0805, 1206 etc. This code is international and in common use. The capacitance of MLCC chips depends on the dielectric, the size and the required voltage. Automotive grades available (AEC-Q200).


What are MLCC capacitors used for?


MLCCs are the most common type of capacitor and can be found in a range of applications, such as robot parts. The type of ceramic material defines the electrical behaviour and therefore the potential application.


Types of MLCC


There are two different types of multilayer ceramic capacitors.


Class 1 MLCCs are known to be highly stable, accurate and have low losses. They offer the most reliable voltage, temperature, and frequency. Class 1 capacitors are commonly found in resonant circuits such as radios.


Class 2 MLCCs have a highly permittive dielectric which gives better volumetric efficiency. However they have lower accuracy and stability than Class 1 capacitors and are better suited to bypass, coupling and decoupling applications, or for frequency discriminating circuits.
