MLCCs with Higher Flexure

MLCCs with Higher Flexure

AVX has launched multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) that enhance the mechanical flexure and temperature cycling performance of a standard ceramic capacitor with an X7R dielectric. The industry standard for flexure is 2mm (minimum), while the Flexiterm MLCCs provide up to 5mm of flexure without internal cracks.

Apart from automotive applications, these components are recommended for use in PCBs which may be subject to high levels of board flexure.
