A. A flex crack is most frequently detected by electrical measurement as a decrease in insulation resistance. The MLCCs IR (Insulation Resistance) will decrease because the crack creates a weak point in the dielectric. Decreases in IR are usually detected by increases in leakage current.

A loss of capacitance or an increase in dissipation factor are also electrical indicators that a crack has occurred.
