CalRamic HV Ceramic Capacitor Educational Series 109-3

Single Layer Vs Multilayer Designs

In their simplest form ceramic capacitors are comprised of a single sheet or layer of dielectric with electrodes printed on each side. This approach may be ideal for higher voltage, lower capacitance designs, but may not be considered practical for applications where a significant amount of capacitance is required. Material and process constraints place finite limitations on the overall maximum size of a plate and the minimum thickness that one can reliably cast dielectric. Once those limitations have been reached the engineer is forced to look at alternative methods by which these challenges can be managed and multilayer capacitor designs provide that option.

CalRamic's streamlined manufacturing process and 30+ high voltage capacitor experience provides the expertise necessary to produce custom single layer and multi-layer designs.
