Ceramic Capacitors standard

A Ceramic Capacitor uses different ceramic-materials for the dielectric. The composition of the ceramic material defines the electrical characteristic and is divided in 2 groups called class 1 and class 2 materials. The class 1 has high electric stability and low losses and are specified with temperature coefficients whereas class 2 is specified in tolerance fields over temperature and has much higher volumetric efficiency but with lower accuracy.

Generally it can be said that ceramic capacitors have basically the highest electrical performance and the widest range of capacitance and voltage values of the different capacitor technologies.
In this classification-group you will find standard and high running parts. MLCC in sizes from 01005 up to 0603 in range below 1µF and below 500V and sizes from 0805 up to 2220 from below 10µF and below 500V.

All other ceramic capacitors means higher capacitance values and voltages, leaded types, single layer and several other special versions you will find in the additional group called Ceramic Caps Special.
