Reliability Challenges with the Use of Multilayer Ceramic Chip Capacitors
Description: The multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) has become a widely used electronics component. The MLCC technologies have gone through several material and process changes such as the shift from precious metal electrode (PME) configurations which were predominantly silver/palladium to base metal electrodes (BME) dominated by nickel. This tutorial will discuss common failures, root cause, and mitigation methods involving supplier selection and qualification.
