X2Y® Circuit 2: Decoupling
When used in circuit 2 configuration, A & B capacitors are placed in parallel effectively doubling the effective capacitance while maintaining an ultra-low inductance. The low inductance advantages of the X2Y® Capacitor Circuit enables high-performance bypass networks at reduced system cost.
- Lower via count, improves routing
- Reduces component count
- Lowers placement cost
- Low ESL (device only and mounted)
- Broadband Performance
- Effective on PCB or package
X2Y High Performance Power Bypass - Improve Performance, Reduce Space & Vias
Actual measured performance of two high performance SerDes FPGA designs demonstrate how a 13 component X2Y bypass network significantly out performs a 38 component MLC network.
For more information see: Simplified design and improved performance using X2Y® capacitors and Altera StratixII GX SerDes.
The X2Y® has short, multiple and opposing current paths resulting in lower device inductance

1:5 MLCC REPLACEMENT EXAMPLE
X2Y's proven technology enables end-users to use one X2Y capacitor to replace five conventional MLCCs in a typical high performance IC bypass design. Vias are nearly cut in half, board space is reduced and savings are in dollars per PCB.
