Class I Dielectrics
Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors are generally divided into classes
which are defined by the capacitance temperature characteristics
over specified temperature ranges. These are designated by alpha
numeric codes. Code definitions are summarised below and are also
available in the relevant national and international specifications.
Capacitors within this class have a dielectric constant range from
10 to 100. They are used in applications which require ultra stable

Class II Dielectrics
Capacitors of this type have a dielectric constant range of 1000-
4000 and also have a non-linear temperature characteristic which
exhibits a dielectric constant variation of less than ±15% (2R1)
from its room temperature value, over the specified temperature
range. Generally used for by-passing (decoupling), coupling,
filtering, frequency discrimination, DC blocking and voltage transient
suppression with greater volumetric efficiency than Class I units,
whilst maintaining stability within defined limits.

FlexiCap™ termination
MLCCs are widely used in electronic circuit design for a multitude of
applications. Their small package size, technical performance and
suitability for automated assembly makes them the component of
choice for the specifier.
However, despite the technical benefits, ceramic components are
brittle and need careful handling on the production floor. In some
circumstances they may be prone to mechanical stress damage if
not used in an appropriate manner. Board flexing, depanelisation,
mounting through hole components, poor storage and automatic
testing may all result in cracking.
Careful process control is important at all stages of circuit board
assembly and transportation - from component placement to
test and packaging. Any significant board flexing may result in
stress fractures in ceramic devices that may not always be evident
during the board assembly process. Sometimes it may be the end
customer who finds out - when equipment fails!
Knowles has the solution - FlexiCap™
FlexiCap™ has been developed as a result of listening to customers’
experiences of stress damage to MLCCs from many manufacturers,
often caused by variations in production processes.
Our answer is a proprietary flexible epoxy polymer termination
material, that is applied to the device under the usual nickel barrier
finish. FlexiCap™ will accommodate a greater degree of board
bending than conventional capacitors.
Knowles FlexiCap™ termination
Ranges are available with FlexiCap™ termination material offering
increased reliability and superior mechanical performance (board
flex and temperature cycling) when compared with standard
termination materials. Refer to Knowles application note reference
AN0001. FlexiCap™ capacitors enable the board to be bent
almost twice as much before mechanical cracking occurs. Refer to
application note AN0002.
FlexiCap™ is also suitable for Space applications having passed
thermal vacuum outgassing tests. Refer to Syfer application note
reference AN0026.

Application notes
FlexiCap™ may be handled, stored and transported in the same
manner as standard terminated capacitors. The requirements for
mounting and soldering FlexiCap™ are the same as for standard
SMD capacitors.
For customers currently using standard terminated capacitors there
should be no requirement to change the assembly process when
converting to FlexiCap™.
Based upon board bend tests in accordance with IEC 60384-1
the amount of board bending required to mechanically crack a
FlexiCap™ terminated capacitor is significantly increased compared
with standard terminated capacitors.
It must be stressed however, that capacitor users must not
assume that the use of FlexiCap™ terminated capacitors will totally
eliminate mechanical cracking. Good process controls are still
required for this objective to be achieved.

magnification using a SEM

nature of the FlexiCapTM
termination that absorbs

Summary of PCB bend test results
The bend tests conducted on X7R have proven that the FlexiCap™
termination withstands a greater level of mechanical stress before
mechanical cracking occurs.
The AEC-Q200 test for X7R requires a bend level of 2mm minimum
and a cap change of less than 10%.
Product
X7R Typical bend performance under
AEC-Q200 test conditions
Standard termination 2mm to 3mm
FlexiCap™ Typically 8mm to 10mm
FlexiCap™ benefits
With traditional termination materials and assembly, the chain
of materials from bare PCB to soldered termination, provides no
flexibility. In circumstances where excessive stress is applied - the
weakest link fails. This means the ceramic itself, which may fail
short circuit.
The benefit to the user is to facilitate a wider process window -
giving a greater safety margin and substantially reducing the typical
root causes of mechanical stress cracking.
FlexiCap™ may be soldered using your traditional wave or reflow
solder techniques including lead free and needs no adjustment to
equipment or current processes.
Knowles has delivered millions of FlexiCap™ components and
during that time has collected substantial test and reliability data,
working in partnership with customers world wide, to eliminate
mechanical cracking.
An additional benefit of FlexiCap™ is that MLCCs can withstand
temperature cycling -55ºC to 125ºC in excess of 1,000 times
without cracking.
FlexiCap™ termination has no adverse effect on any electrical
parameters, nor affects the operation of the MLCC in any way.

Notes:
1) “Tandem” construction capacitors, ie internally having the equivalent
of 2 series capacitors. If one of these should fail short-circuit, there is still
capacitance end to end and the chip will still function as a capacitor,
although capacitance maybe affected. Refer to application note AN0021.
Also available qualified to AEC-Q200.
2) “Open Mode” capacitors with FlexiCapTM termination also reduce the
possibility of a short circuit by utilising inset electrode margins. Refer to
application note AN0022. Also available qualified to AEC-Q200.
3) Multilayer capacitors with Knowles FlexiCapTM termination. By using
FlexiCapTM termination, there is a reduced possibility of the mechanical

Export controls and dual-use regulations
Certain Knowles catalogue components are defined as ‘dual-use’
items under international export controls - those that can be used
for civil or military purposes which meet certain specified technical
standards.
The defining criteria for a dual use component with respect to
Knowles Capacitor products is one with a voltage rating of >750Vdc
and a capacitance value of >250nF when measured at 750Vdc
and a series inductance <10nH. Components defined as dual-use
under the above criteria may require a licence for export across
international borders. Please contact the Sales Office for further
information on specific part numbers.
REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and
restriction of Chemicals) statement
The main purpose of REACH is to improve the protection of human
health and the environment from the risks arising from the use of
chemicals.
Knowles maintains both ISO14001, Environmental Management
System and OHSAS 18001 Health and Safety Management System
approvals that require and ensure compliance with corresponding
legislation such as REACH.
For further information, please contact the Knowles Capacitors
Sales Office at www.knowlescapacitors.com
RoHS compliance
Knowles routinely monitors world wide material restrictions (e.g.
EU/China and Korea RoHS mandates) and is actively involved in
shaping future legislation.
All standard C0G/NP0, X7R, X5R and High Q Knowles MLCC
products are compliant with the EU RoHS directive (see below
for special exceptions) and those with plated terminations are
suitable for soldering using common lead free solder alloys (refer
to ‘Soldering Information’ for more details on soldering limitations).
Compliance with the EU RoHS directive automatically signifies
compliance with some other legislation (e.g. China and Korea
RoHS). Please refer to the Knowles Capacitors Sales Office for
details of compliance with other materials legislation.
Breakdown of material content, SGS analysis reports and tin
whisker test results are available on request.
Most Knowles MLCC components are available with non RoHS
compliant tin lead (SnPb) solderable termination finish for exempt
applications and where pure tin is not acceptable. Other tin free
termination finishes may also be available – please refer to the
Knowles Capacitors Sales Office for further details.
Radial components have tin plated leads as standard but tin/lead is
available as a special option. Please refer to the radial section of the
catalogue for further details.

Ageing
Capacitor ageing is a term used to describe the negative,
logarithmic capacitance change which takes place in ceramic
capacitors with time. The crystalline structure for barium titanate
based ceramics changes on passing through its Curie temperature
(known as the Curie Point) at about 125°C. This domain structure
relaxes with time and in doing so, the dielectric constant reduces
logarithmically; this is known as the ageing mechanism of the
dielectric constant. The more stable dielectrics have the lowest
ageing rates.
The ageing process is reversible and repeatable. Whenever the
capacitor is heated to a temperature above the Curie Point the
ageing process starts again from zero.
The ageing constant, or ageing rate, is defined as the percentage
loss of capacitance due to the ageing process of the dielectric
which occurs during a decade of time (a tenfold increase in age)
and is expressed as percent per logarithmic decade of hours. As
the law of decrease of capacitance is logarithmic, this means that
in a capacitor with an ageing rate of 1% per decade of time, the
capacitance will decrease at a rate of:
a) 1% between 1 and 10 hours
b) An additional 1% between the following 10 and 100 hours
c) An additional 1% between the following 100 and 1000 hours
d) An additional 1% between the following 1000 and 10000
hours etc
e) The ageing rate continues in this manner throughout the
capacitor’s life.
Typical values of the ageing constant for our Multilayer Ceramic
Capacitors are:
Capacitance measurements
Because of ageing it is necessary to specify an age for reference
measurements at which the capacitance shall be within the
prescribed tolerance. This is fixed at 1000 hours, since for practical
purposes there is not much further loss of capacitance after this
time.
All capacitors shipped are within their specified tolerance at the
standard reference age of 1000 hours after having cooled through
their Curie temperature.
The ageing curve for any ceramic dielectric is a straight line when
plotted on semi-log paper.

Tight tolerance
One of the advantages of Knowles’ unique ‘wet process’ of
manufacture is the ability to offer capacitors with exceptionally tight
capacitance tolerances.
The accuracy of the printing screens used in the fully automated,
computer controlled manufacturing process allows for tolerance as
close as +/-1% on C0G/NP0 parts greater than or equal to 10pF.
For capacitance values below <4.7pF, tolerances can be as tight as
+/-0.05pF.

MLC’s for SMD technology, to ensure a suitable match between
component capability and user expectation. Some extracts are
given below.
Mechanical considerations for mounted ceramic chip
capacitors
Due to their brittle nature, ceramic chip capacitors are more prone
to excesses of mechanical stress than other components used in
surface mounting.
One of the most common causes of failure is directly attributable
to bending the printed circuit board after solder attachment.
The excessive or sudden movement of the flexible circuit board
stresses the inflexible ceramic block causing a crack to appear at
the weakest point, usually the ceramic/termination interface. The
crack may initially be quite small and not penetrate into the inner
electrodes; however, subsequent handling and rapid changes in
temperature may cause the crack to enlarge.
This mode of failure is often invisible to normal inspection
techniques as the resultant cracks usually lie under the capacitor
terminations but if left, can lead to catastrophic failure. More
importantly, mechanical cracks, unless they are severe may not be
detected by normal electrical testing of the completed circuit, failure
only occurring at some later stage after moisture ingression.
The degree of mechanical stress generated on the printed circuit
board is dependent upon several factors including the board
material and thickness; the amount of solder and land pattern.
The amount of solder applied is important, as an excessive amount
reduces the chip’s resistance to cracking.
It is Knowles’s experience that more than 90% are due to board
depanelisation, a process where two or more circuit boards are
separated after soldering is complete. Other manufacturing stages
that should be reviewed include:
1) Attaching rigid components such as connectors, relays, display
panels, heat sinks etc.
2) Fitting conventional leaded components. Special care must
be exercised when rigid terminals, as found on large can
electrolytic capacitors, are inserted.
3) Storage of boards in such a manner which allows warping.
4) Automatic test equipment, particularly the type employing “bed
of nails” and support pillars.
5) Positioning the circuit board in its enclosure especially where
this is a “snap-fit”.
Knowles were the first MLCC manufacturer to launch a flexible
termination to significantly reduce the instances of mechanical
cracking. FlexiCap™ termination introduces a certain amount of give
into the termination layer absorbing damaging stress. Unlike similar
systems, FlexiCap™ does not tear under tension, but absorbs the
stress, so maintaining the characteristics of the MLCC.
SM Pad Design
Knowles conventional 2-terminal chip capacitors can generally
be mounted using pad designs in accordance with IPC-7351,
Generic Requirements for Surface Mount Design and Land Pattern
Standards, but there are some other factors that have been shown
to reduce mechanical stress, such as reducing the pad width to
less than the chip width. In addition, the position of the chip on the
board should also be considered.
3-Terminal components are not specifically covered by IPC-7351,
but recommended pad dimensions are included in the Knowles
catalogue / website for these components.
Alternative Printed Wire Board Land Patterns
Printed Wire Board land pattern design for chip components is
critical to ensure a reliable solder fillet, and to reduce nuisance
type manufacturing problems such as component swimming and
tombstoning. The land pattern suggested can be used for reflow
and wave solder operations as noted. Land patterns constructed
with these dimensions will yield optimized solder fillet formation and
thus reduce the possibility of early failure.1

MLC Orientation - Horizontal and Vertical Mounting
The orientation of the MLC relative to the ground plane affects the
devices’ impedance. When the internal electrodes are parallel to
the ground plane (Horizontal mounting) the impedance of the MLC
resembles a folded transmission line driven from one end.
The graphs below show the modeled insertion loss and parallel
resonances of Knowles product C17AH101K-7UN-X0T with
horizontal mounting (modeling can be done in CapCad). When the
internal electrodes are perpendicular to the ground plane (Vertical
mounting, bottom graph) the MLC impedance resembles a folded
transmission line driven from the center reducing resonance effects.

The volume of solder applied to the chip capacitor can influence
the reliability of the device. Excessive solder can create thermal
and tensile stresses on the component which can lead to fracturing
of the chip or the solder joint itself. Insufficient or uneven solder
application can result in weak bonds, rotation of the device off line
or lifting of one terminal off the pad (tombstoning). The volume of
solder is process and board pad size dependent.
Soldering methods commonly used in industry are Reflow Soldering,
Wave Soldering and, to a lesser extent, Vapour Phase Soldering.
All these methods involve thermal cycling of the components and
therefore the rate of heating and cooling must be controlled to
preclude thermal shocking of the devices.
Without mechanical restriction, thermally induced stresses are
released once the capacitor attains a steady state condition.
Capacitors bonded to substrates, however, will retain some stress,
due primarily to the mismatch of expansion of the component to
the substrate; the residual stress on the chip is also influenced by
the ductility and hence the ability of the bonding medium to relieve
the stress. Unfortunately, the thermal expansion of chip capacitors
differ significantly from those of most substrate materials.
Large chips are more prone to thermal shock as their greater
bulk will result in sharper thermal gradients within the device
during thermal cycling. Large units experience excessive stress if
processed through the fast cycles typical of solder wave or vapour
phase operations.
Reflow soldering Surface Mount Chip Capacitors
Knowles recommend reflow soldering as the preferred method for
mounting MLCCs. Knowles MLCCs can be reflow soldered using
a reflow profile generally as defined in IPC / JEDEC J-STD-020.
Sn plated termination chip capacitors are compatible with both
conventional and lead free soldering, with peak temperatures of
260ºC to 270ºC acceptable.
The heating ramp rate should be such that components see
a temperature rise of 1.5ºC to 4ºC per seconds to maintain
temperature uniformity through the MLCC. The time for which
the solder is molten should be maintained at a minimum, so as to
prevent solder leaching. Extended times above 230ºC can cause
problems with oxidation of Sn plating. Use of inert atmosphere
can help if this problem is encountered. PdAg terminations can
be particularly susceptible to leaching with lead free, tin rich
solders and trials are recommended for this combination. Cooling
to ambient temperature should be allowed to occur naturally,
particularly if larger chip sizes are being soldered. Natural cooling
allows a gradual relaxation of thermal mismatch stresses in the
solder joints. Forced cooling should be avoided as this can induce
thermal breakage.
Wave soldering Surface Mount Chip Capacitors
Wave soldering is generally acceptable, but the thermal stresses
caused by the wave have been shown to lead to potential problems
with larger or thicker chips. Particular care should be taken when
soldering SM chips larger than size 1210 and with a thickness
greater than 1.0mm for this reason. 0402 size components are
not suitable for wave soldering. 0402 size components can also
be susceptible to termination leaching and reflow soldering is
recommended for this size MLCC.
Wave soldering exposes the devices to a large solder volume, hence
the pad size area must be restricted to accept an amount of solder
which is not detrimental to the chip size utilized. Typically the pad
width is 66% of the component width, and the length is .030” (.760
mm) longer than the termination band on the chip. An 0805 chip
which is .050” wide and has a .020” termination band therefore
requires a pad .033” wide by .050” in length. Opposing pads should
be identical in size to preclude uneven solder fillets and mismatched
surface tension forces which can misalign the device. It is preferred
that the pad layout results in alignment of the long axis of the chips
at right angles to the solder wave, to promote even wetting of all
terminals. Orientation of components in line with the board travel
direction may require dual waves with solder turbulence to preclude
cold solder joints on the trailing terminals of the devices, as these
are blocked from full exposure to the solder by the body of the
capacitor.
The pre-heat ramp should be such that the components see a
temperature rise of 1.5ºC to 4ºC per second as for reflow soldering.
This is to maintain temperature uniformity through the MLCC and
prevent the formation of thermal gradients within the ceramic. The
preheat temperature should be within 120ºC maximum (100ºC
preferred) of the maximum solder temperature to minimise thermal
shock. Maximum permissible wave temperature is 270ºC for SM
chips. Total immersion exposure time for Sn/Ni terminations is 30s
at a wave temperature of 260ºC. Note that for multiple soldering
operations, including the rework, the soldering time is cumulative.
The total immersion time in the solder should be kept to a
minimum. It is strongly recommended that plated terminations
are specified for wave soldering applications. PdAg termination
is particularly susceptible to leaching when subjected to lead
free wave soldering and is not generally recommended for this
application.
Cooling to ambient temperature should be allowed to occur
naturally, particularly if larger chip sizes are being soldered. Natural
cooling allows a gradual relaxation of thermal mismatch stresses
in the solder joints. Forced cooling should be avoided as this can
induce thermal breakage.
Vapour phase soldering Chip Capacitors
Vapour phase soldering can expose capacitors to similar thermal
shock and stresses as wave soldering and the advice is generally
the same. Particular care should be taken in soldering large
capacitors to avoid thermal cracks being induced and natural
cooling should be use to allow a gradual relaxation of stresses.
Hand soldering and rework of Chip Capacitors
Attachment using a soldering iron requires extra care and is
accepted to have a risk of cracking of the chip. Precautions include
preheating of the assembly to within 100°C of the solder flow
temperature and the use of a fine tip iron which does not exceed 30
watts. In no circumstances should the tip of the iron be allowed to
contact the chip directly.
Knowles recommend hot air/gas as the preferred method for
applying heat for rework. Apply even heat surrounding the
component to minimise internal thermal gradients.
Minimise the rework heat duration and allow components to cool
naturally after soldering.

Wave soldering Radial Leaded Chip Capacitors
Radial leaded capacitors are suitable for wave soldering when
mounted on the opposite side of the board to the wave. The body
of radial components should not be exposed directly to the wave.
Maximum permissible wave temperature is 260ºC for Radial Leaded
capacitors.
Hand soldering Radial Leaded capacitors
Radial capacitors can be hand soldered into boards using soldering
irons, provided care is taken not to touch the body of the capacitor
with the iron tip. Soldering should be carried out from the opposite
side of the board to the radial to minimise the risk of damage to
the capacitor body. Where possible, a heat sink should be used
between the solder joint and the body, especially if longer dwell
times are required.
Solder leaching
Leaching is the term for the dissolution of silver into the solder
causing a failure of the termination system which causes increased
ESR, tan δ and open circuit faults, including ultimately the
possibility of the chip becoming detached. Leaching occurs more
readily with higher temperature solders and solders with a high
tin content. Pb free solders can be very prone to leaching certain
termination systems. To prevent leaching, exercise care when
choosing solder alloys and minimize both maximum temperature
and dwell time with the solder molten.
Plated terminations with nickel or copper anti leaching barrier layers
are available in a range of top coat finishes to prevent leaching
occurring. These finishes also include Syfer FlexiCap™ for improved
stress resistance post soldering.
Bonding
Hybrid assembly using conductive epoxy or wire bonding requires
the use of silver palladium or gold terminations. Nickel barrier
termination is not practical in these applications, as intermetallics
will form between the dissimilar metals. The ESR will increase
over time and may eventually break contact when exposed to
temperature cycling.
Cleaning
Chip capacitors can withstand common agents such as water,
alcohol and degreaser solvents used for cleaning boards. Ascertain
that no flux residues are left on the chip surfaces as these diminish
electrical performance.
Handling
Ceramics are dense, hard, brittle and abrasive materials. They are
liable to suffer mechanical damage, in the form of chips or cracks, if
improperly handled.
Terminations may be abraded onto chip surfaces if loose chips are
tumbled in bulk. Metallic tracks may be left on the chip surfaces
which might pose a reliability hazard.
Components should never be handled with fingers; perspiration and
skin oils can inhibit solderability and will aggravate cleaning.
Chip capacitors should never be handled with metallic instruments.
Metal tweezers should never be used as these can chip the product
and may leave abraded metal tracks on the product surface.
Plastic or plastic coated metal types are readily available and
recommended - these should be used with an absolute minimum of
applied pressure.
Counting or visual inspection of chip capacitors is best performed
on a clean glass or hard plastic surface.
If chips are dropped or subjected to rough handling, they should
be visually inspected before use. Electrical inspection may also
reveal gross damage via a change in capacitance, an increase in
dissipation factor or a decrease either in insulation resistance or
electrical strength.
Transportation
Where possible, any transportation should be carried out with the
product in its unopened original packaging. If already opened,
any environmental control agents supplied should be returned to
packaging and the packaging re-sealed.
Avoid paper and card as a primary means of handling, packing,
transportation and storage of loose components. Many grades
have a sulphur content which will adversely affect termination
solderability.
Loose chips should always be packed with sulphur-free wadding to
prevent impact or abrasion damage during transportation.
Storage
Incorrect storage of components can lead to problems for the
user. Rapid tarnishing of the terminations, with an associated
degradation of solderability, will occur if the product comes into
contact with industrial gases such as sulphur dioxide and chlorine.
Storage in free air, particularly moist or polluted air, can result in
termination oxidation.
Packaging should not be opened until the MLCs are required
for use. If opened, the pack should be re-sealed as soon as is
practicable. Alternatively, the contents could be kept in a sealed
container with an environmental control agent.
Long term storage conditions, ideally, should be temperature
controlled between -5 and +40°C and humidity controlled between
40 and 60% R.H.
Taped product should be stored out of direct sunlight, which might
promote deterioration in tape or adhesive performance.
Product, stored under the conditions recommended above, in its “as
received” packaging, has a minimum shelf life of 2 years.
