A century of diligent R&D has resulted in a wide range of ceramic dielectrics and processing technologies. The technology used to manufacture an MLCC (multilayer ceramic capacitors) that costs pennies was unimaginable 30 years ago. The present trends of enhanced mobility, connectivity, and reliability in consumer, industrial, and military electronics will continue to drive future innovations in ceramic capacitor technology. In addition, power electronics applications are an emerging market in which ceramic capacitors will play an increasing role through improved breakdown strength, enhanced dielectric stability in harsh environments, and innovative packaging. The investment made by the US government to develop high energy density and high temperature capacitor technology will also contribute to the advancement of dielectric materials technology for pulse and power electronic capacitors.
