C-Arrays ceramic multilayer capacitor arrays contain four CMCs in a 1206 case size. Applications include cost-sensitive ones, especially where high packing density is a major requirement; data processing; consumer electronic equipment; telecommunications; and automotive electronics. A single C-Array occupies less than half the board space of four equivalent discrete CMCs.
