Method for a shielded capacitor

Disclosed is a method for a shielded capacitor. Benefits include improved reliability.

Description

        � � � � � The disclosed method is a shielded capacitor. Two grounding layers protect the cap (see Figure 1) from external electrostatic discharge (ESD).

        � � � � � The key element of the method includes top and bottom ground layers of the cap shorted together to protect the capacitor from ESD.

        � � � � � The disclosed method can be implemented using the following process steps:

1.        � � Ceramic material formulation and mixing

2.        � � Ceramic layers stack up

3.        � � Press

4.        � � Dicing

5.        � � Ceramic firing

6.        � � Termination striping

7.        � � Termination cure

8.        � � Plating

9.        � � Test

10.         Visual Inspection

11.         Packaging

Advantages

        � � � � � The disclosed method provides advantages, including:

•        � � � � Improved reliability by protecting the cap from external ESD
