Considerations for Base-Metal Electrode ( BME ) Ceramic Capacitors for High Reliability Applications

A common trend in electronics applications is reduction in feature sizes while growing the overall content and functionality of electronics. Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCC) have been able to follow this trend primarily due to the advent and growth of Base-Metal Electrode technology (BME, e.g., Nickel). Over the past 15 to 20 years, there has been… CONTINUE READING
