Technique improves voltage breakdown characteristics

Vishay has introduced a surface-mount multi layer ceramic chip capacitor that has average voltage breakdown twice that of standard commercial-grade products. They call the approach HVArc Guard® . It's a patent pending technology that essentially increases the effective creepage distance along the part's surface. Voltage breakdowns are twice that of some competitor
products. Sounds pretty interesting!
