A. TDK's Soft Termination series is an MLCC with a layer of conductive resin built in to the standard termination.

The Conductive Epoxy series uses an AgPdCu termination for use with conductive epoxy as a mounting adhesive (solder replacement).

Both series allow for greater resistance to cracking due to mechanical stress, and significantly more resistance to cracking due to thermal shock. Additionally, the low curing temperatures of the conductive epoxy series preserve heat sensitive components during manufacturing.
