Capacitor Array

  • Space savings - less than 50% board space as compared to equivalent discrete space
  • More capacitance per area - high volumetric efficiency from:
    • - side margins
    • - larger thickness
  • Increased throughput - 1 capacitor-array = ¼ the time of placing 4 discrete caps
  • Cost savings - cost savings on : ( pick and place costs, manufacturing time, equipment overhead, storage, incoming inspections, visual inspections, board costs )
  • East of manufacturing - as SMT components become smaller, handling become more difficult
