AVX Corporation (Greenville, SC) offers multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) arrays in 0405 and 0508 packages and four-element arrays in 0508 and 0612 packages with capacitance values ranging from 1 pf to 2.2 uf and voltages of 6.3 V to 100 V. The switched capacitor voltage doubling inverters are available in SO8 and miniature SO8 packages and a completed circuit would require the IC and three periphery capacitors. The arrays have been used in switched capacitor voltage doubling inverter designs to reduce the footprint and an operating efficiency greater than 90% with most loads.
