A multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) is a type of capacitor that is made up of multiple layers of ceramic material and conductive electrodes. MLCCs are commonly used in a variety of applications, including telecommunications, automotive systems, and consumer electronics. Leaded MLCCs are MLCCs that have leads or terminals that are designed to be inserted through holes in a printed circuit board (PCB) and soldered in place.
Leaded MLCCs are preferred over other types of capacitors in many applications because they offer several advantages. They have a small size and a low profile, allowing for high-density circuit design. Additionally, they have a wide operating temperature range and are highly reliable, making them well-suited for use in demanding environments. Furthermore, their leaded design allows for easy assembly and manual soldering processes.
