Review: Ceramic multilayer capacitors used in surface-mount electronics have decreased in size by a factor of four over the last five years while their capacitance per unit volume has increased by the same factor. The preparation and processing procedures applied to ultrafine dielectric ceramic powders used in the capacitors (see Figure), which have resulted in these improvements in size and performance characteristics are described.
