MLCC Shortages: Considering Your Options

Thumb original 2

Multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) are ubiquitous in today’s electronics designs. They make up an estimated 30% of the component count in many products, with a market value of more than $8 billion.

Recently, there have been shortages in MLCCs, with lead times extending to problematic lengths, and these capacity limitations are expected to extend to 2020 and beyond. In this whitepaper, we will look at the reasons for these shortages, and review the alternatives to MLCCs that are available to engineers.

Fundamentals of Building a Test System

Most organizations do not consider production test a top priority, but it is a necessity to prevent major quality issues in the products that represent the company brand in the hands of customers. The costs, however, can be significant and are often greatly misunderstood, especially when there’s no easy way to quantify the positive business impact of high-quality products or shortened time to market. But best-in-class organizations are unfazed by this “necessary evil” viewpoint, because they seek to understand the total cost of developing, depl ...
