Standard MLCCs are prone to cracking due to mishandling, depanelization, and board flexing. In response to customer requests for higher resistance to mechanical stress, and as a result of continuous efforts to improve our products, JDI has introduced PolyTerm® termination ceramic capacitors to meet those customer requirements for increased resistance to flexure cracking.
PolyTerm® is a conductive epoxy termination material loaded with silver, allowing it to absorb much more bending force than standard termination material. After termination PolyTerm® parts are nickel and tin plated using the same process as standard parts. There is no effect on solderability or capability to withstand the soldering process. PolyTerm® capacitors are ideal for use in telecom, power supply, inverter, and modem applications.
