Leaded ceramic multilayer
• Very high capacitance per unit
• Low cost.
These conformally coated radial
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-kap™
capacitors are suitable for automatic
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
Fig.1 Component outlines.
Metal end terminations are applied
and fired to provide electrical
connection between the individual
layers. Tinned leads are attached using
Encapsulation consists of a
moisture-resistant gold colour
conformal epoxy coating that meets
the flame requirements of “UL94V-0”.
