A new line of high-capacitance multilayer ceramic capacitors combines higher volumetric capacitance per given board area with lower equivalent series resistance than alternative solutions. The devices in the X7R and X5R series are packaged in 0402 to 1812 case sizes with a capacitance value range of 100 pF to 100 µF. These devices are suited for replacing polarized tantalum and electrolytic capacitors to simplify manufacturing. Their low ESR characteristics allow for comparable filter circuit designs to be achieved at typically one-third to one-fifth of the capacitance values. Novacap,
