Open Mode capacitors have been designed specifically for use in applications where mechanical cracking is a severe problem and short circuits due to cracking are unacceptable. Open Mode capacitors use inset electrode margins, which prevent any mechanical cracks which may form during board assembly from connecting to the internal electrodes.
When combined with FlexiCap™ termination, Open Mode capacitors provide a robust component with the assurance that if a part becomes cracked, the crack will be unlikely to result in short circuit failure.
