Single Layer Chip Capacitors

Type B Capacitors

Type B Capacitors

Type B capacitors have a border around the top and bottom electrodes which helps to prevent epoxy creep-up related shorts and may aid in optical recognition with automated equipment. The bottom electrode is not suitable for solder die attach as the solder barrier layer has been removed. These capacitors can be used upside-down so top/bottom orientation is not important.
