This may also determine the voltage rating, with a thicker dielectric layer comprising a higher voltage rating than a thinner one. Wavy end 912 may also be absent of any sharp corners. ceramic capacitors are presented and the drivers for failure occurrence, mechanical, thermal, chemical, and electrical, are ... examination of all failed capacitors identified internal delamination parallel to the electrodes as the dominant crack morphology (shown in Figure 9). Operation 1450 dries the powder bed by flash drying, e.g., infrared heating. The algorithm may be inputted with one or more desired specification or property, such as, e.g., maximum capacitance, and may output the most cost effective size, shape, and/or configuration of an ideal MLCC to match the desired specification or property. Therefore, the choice of shape depends on whether the capacitor performance is limited by maximum voltage or maximum strength. (4) U.S. utility patent application Ser. FIG. FIG. A capacitor is an electrical device that stores energy in the electric field between a pair of closely spaced conductors. Additionally, an algorithm of a computing device may determine an optimal shape, size, and/or configuration of the capacitor based on one or more predetermined specifications or properties. The system bus 1730 may be any type of bus structures or architectures, such as 12-bit bus, Industrial Standard Architecture (ISA), Micro-Channel Architecture (MSA), Extended ISA (EISA), Intelligent Drive Electronics (IDE), VESA Local Bus (VLB), Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI), Universal Serial Bus (USB), Advanced Graphics Port (AGP), Personal Computer Memory Card International Association bus (PCMCIA), or Small Computer Systems Interface (SCST). Operation 750 sinters the green part to form a final product. ceramic capacitors. We can define ceramic capacitor as: 5 is a schematic representation of a front cross-section view of a conventional multilayer ceramic capacitor. In addition, pillar edge 1008 may comprise a round or convex shape, also for removal of stress singularities and reduction of intense electric field; however, the invention may not be so limited and pillar edge 1008 may comprise the standard end with sharp corners, if such resulting specification is desired. The first and the third layers of the capacitor may comprise a convex round and/or bulbous and/or wavy configuration disposed at a conductive layer end and/or at a pillar edge. A slurry jet 600 may be dispensed from a nozzle 604 having an orifice comprising an opening, and may be raster or vector scanned on track 606 by a carriage 608 driven by drive unit 610 over a surface 612 or on top of an already formed powder bed to define a new layer. Sintering is a solid-state diffusion process that may be enhanced by increasing the surface area to volume ratio of the powder in any green part that is subsequently sintered. Various operating systems or combinations of operating systems may be used. The embedded pillars may be used to prevent delamination of the layers and to increase mechanical strength. 4 is a cutaway perspective view of a conventional multilayer ceramic capacitor. That said, like all manufacturing environments, there tends to be a delamination between the electrode and dielectric was extending from a termination by ~800 m to the center of the capacitor. FIG. 9A, thus improves voltage efficiency over the prior art. The plate capacitor may be manufactured from three parallel plates. The deposit of slurry drops may be individually controlled, thereby generating a regular surface for each layer. FIG. Once a capacitor configuration is determined, an additive manufacturing printer communicatively coupled to the algorithm may produce the desired product. The modification shown here also has the effect of removing an electrostatic singularity that occurs in the sharp endpoints of the conductor, which increases the maximum voltage the capacitor can be raised to without causing dielectric breakdown. The key advantage for purposes of this invention disclosure is that more complex shapes can be printed than simple flat layers, and this capability can be used to improve the structural integrity of the part. Insulator layer 306 may be dielectric disposed between a pair of conductive layers 304. 1.3. Particularly in the case of a physically large MLCC, there is a possibility of delamination under the stress of temperature or pressure. In general, the tessellation may be in any N-sided polygon configuration, for example, triangle, square, pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octagon, nonagon, decagon, hendecagon, or dodecagon for N=3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 or 12, respectively. The round ends may also eliminate areas of intense electric field, e.g., hotspots. In FIG. In FIG. The aforementioned steps may produce a ceramic capacitor comprising a first conductive layer formed on a surface of a dielectric layer, and a second conductive layer formed on the opposing surface of the dielectric layer. 3 shows a single capacitive layer capacitor encased in insulation, and capped with conductive electrodes, according to at least one embodiment. When a voltage is applied to termination A 406 and termination B 408, the MLCC may produce electric fields between every two neighboring conductive layer 402 and store electric charges therein. The system memory 1732 may include volatile memory 1733 and nonvolatile memory 1734. FIG. Ceramic Capacitor Delamination Problem Update on ceramic capacitors issues since last years meeting. Round end 902 may comprise a convex dome shape with a wide-angle, e.g., greater than 180-degrees. For example, conductor endpoints may comprise a wavy shape, or any other shape that eliminates or minimizes the aforementioned physical instability and hot spot. Recently, it has become possible to create passive components using additive manufacturing (also called 3D printing) where ink jets or aerosol jets deposit materials such as ceramic slurry and conductive ink. FIG. The heat of the solder bath, especially for SMD styles, can cause changes of contact resistance between terminals and electrodes. This is an inherently more precise and repeatable process than traditional methods, and produces higher density components with less material waste. In at least one embodiment, the present invention discloses methods and systems to prevent or minimize MLCC delamination. Other configurations may also be possible, such as bulbous or wavy shapes. The voltage may or may not be the limiting factor in a particular MLCC application; a separate invention disclosure focuses on increased energy density using the more complex geometries possible with 3D printing. Delaminations are a principal quality problem in the manufacture of multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLC's). FIG. FIG. No. Disclosed are methods and systems to minimize delamination of multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs). An individual monolithic leadless ceramic capacitor having metallised terminations for external connection. In some embodiments, operation 1420 and operation 1430 sequentially repeat until a predetermined amount of alternating layers of conductor and dielectric material is achieved. As the slurry deposits in each two dimensional layer, the printer may select insulator or conductor as the material type, in separate passes or as a combined pass. Nevertheless, it will be understood that various modifications may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the claimed invention. Other configurations may be possible, such as bulbous or wavy shaped conductive layer ends. The dielectric material may be the same material used in the insulator layers of the capacitor. The total volume of pillar 1000 should be the minimum amount needed to prevent structural failure, since the additional insulator material displaces conductive layer 1004's surface area and thus reduces capacitance.
