What is a Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor?
Multilayer ceramic capacitors, or MLCCs, are important building blocks in today’s modern electronics and make up approximately 30% of the total components in a typical hybrid circuit module. Multilayer capacitors consist of a monolithic ceramic block with comb-like sintered electrodes. These electrodes come to the surface at the face ends of the ceramic block where an electrical contact is made by burnt-in metallic layers.
Types of Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors
There are many different kinds of multilayer ceramic capacitors. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by rated voltage, tolerance, dielectric, capacitance, packaging type and case size / dimension. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.
The most common values for capacitance are 10 nF, 100 nF and 1 µF. We also carry multilayer ceramic capacitors with capacitance up to 1 µF. The rated voltage can be between 4 V and 10 kV, with the most common capacitors having a rated voltage of 16 V, 25 V, 50 V or 100 V.
