The Capabilities, Benefits, And Key Applications For StackiCap

Knowles - StackiCap

From industrial to automotive to aerospace applications, power electronics are demanding higher capacitance in smaller packages. Therefore, to meet both capacitance demands and size requirements, electronic designers simply cannot continue to add more capacitors.

While capacitor stacking is an option, many stacked assemblies are still quite large and stacking often introduces new failure modes, such as piezo electric cracking.

To overcome this issue, many capacitor manufacturers’ solutions use special, stronger dielectric formulations, but these usually come with trade-offs regarding dielectric constant, and therefore the ultimate capacitance value available.
