Q.Open Mode and the“1210 Rule” (5): What is the "1210 Rule" of MLCCs (Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors)?
Capacitors > Ceramic Capacitors > Multilayer Ceramic Chip Capacitors
Many design engineers utilize a basic rule of thumb that prohibits the use of any 1210 or larger case sized MLCC for fear of increased risk of failed components due to board flexure. The 1210 Rule addresses the significance of larger components but it fails to address the significance of thicker components.
