TDK CKC series capacitor arrays offer multiple multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) in a single package. TDK’s unique design offers low cross talk to truly give separate individual capacitors in a single package. Arrays are offered in 2-in-1 and 4-in-1 package styles. The 2-in-1 offers two individual capacitors of the same nominal value in a single package. The 4-in-1 offers four individual capacitors of the same nominal value in a single package.

Capacitor arrays are used to reduce board space and component count. This also reduces placement time and warehouse/storage space. Capacitor arrays are commonly used for noise decoupling. Today’s higher density circuits, increased feature designs, and smaller product sizes force designers to find ways to reduce component count simply due to the fact of no available board space. Capacitor arrays also allow decoupling capacitors to be placed closer to high speed ICs/ASICs which reduces trace inductance.
