MLCCs Show ESD Resistance
Based on the X7R material, Epcos’ E-series multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) demonstrate typical ESD levels of 18 kV (0603/10 nF), 9 kV (0805/1 nF) and 25 kV (0805/10 nF) to AEC-Q200. The components offer sizes of 0603 and 0805, capacitances from 1 nF to 10 nF, voltages between 50 V and 100 V, and EMI protection up to 300 MHz. The capacitors are compatible with existing designs based on standard multilayer capacitors. From $0.02 to $0.05.
