Available in a 2220 case size, these X7R dielectric capacitors offer the user the option of greater total capacitance on the board, or piece part count reduction. For example, they can take the place of 2 x 4.7nF X1/Y2 capacitors connected in parallel to reduce component count, size and weight - leading to a significant reduction in cost.  Knowles high voltage capacitor expertise means this range offers the highest capacitance / widest range available for a class X1/Y2 250Vac surface mount MLCC.
