Selection criteria for MLCCs - Don’t blindly leave component choices to tools

  Knowledge

Miniaturization has long been “en vogue” when it comes to multi-layer ceramic chip capacitors. But downsizing is no trivial process, especially given that there are many marginal conditions to be considered. Digital tools can help, but relying on these can often cause you to lose perspective of key technical issues.
