LICC capacitors are specially designed to exhibit lower inductance by altering the aspect ratio of the terminations. The smaller current loop length results in Equivalent Series Inductance (ESL) that is typically 60% lower then standard MLCs of the same size. This ESL improvement is extremely advantageous in the high frequency power decoupling of high speed digital MPU, FPGA, DSP, etc..
