Single Layer Chip Capacitors

Type A Capacitors

Type A Capacitors

Type A capacitors have a border around the top electrode which helps to prevent epoxy creep-up related shorts and may aid in optical recognition with automated equipment. The bottom electrode is suitable for both epoxy and solder die attach.

Low εr Capacitor Part Numbers

Metal Stacks

Depending on the ceramic dielectric used and electrode configuration, we use different metal stacks to achieve best mechanical and electrical performances. The different stacks we may use are as follows.

Electrode Metalization
Top TiW – Au OR TaN – TiW – Au
Bottom TiW – Pt – Au OR TaN – TiW – Pt – Au

High εr Capacitor Part Numbers

Metal Stacks

Depending on the ceramic dielectric used and electrode configuration, we use different metal stacks to achieve best mechanical and electrical performances. The different stacks we may use are as follows.

Electrode Metalization
Top TiW – Au OR Ti – TiW – Au
Bottom Ti – Pt – Au
