Description

The ‘Cap-Rack’ (US Patent 6,058,004) is an assembly of individual chip capacitors, bonded with high temperature epoxy. A ‘Cap-Rack’ can be made up of a pair, to as many as eight same size chips - 0603, 0805, 1005, 1206, 1210, 1808, 1812, 1825, 2221 and 2225 - into one single component providing extended freedom for PCB space utilization. Footprint dimensions can also vary to further optimize board space usage. The patented design allows the chips to behave as individual components, not as a single large ceramic mass, and therefore reduces harmful thermal stress during assembly. Typical applications are in Multi-line designs, Mobile phones, Automotive, Computers, Network Devices and Medical products. Electrical advantages include reduction in “cross talk”, to insignificant levels, by elimination of capacitance coupling between adjacent capacitors; the ability to combine resistors and inductors within the ‘Cap-Rack’, as well as mixing and matching capacitance values and dielectrics. Mechanical advantages include reduced board area; easier to handle; reduced placement cost; reduces component stress and decreased cycle time. ‘Cap-Rack’ can also be used with traditional pick and place equipment.
