  • Patent number: 11289271
    Abstract: A conductive resin layer includes a first region positioned on the end surface, a second region positioned on the side surface, and a third region positioned on a ridge portion between the end surface and the side surface. In a case where a maximum thickness of the first region is T1 (?m) and a maximum thickness of the second region is T2 (?m), the maximum thickness T1 and the maximum thickness T2 satisfy a relation of T2/T1?0.11. In a cross-section along a thickness direction of the third region, a total area of the voids in the third region is in a range of 3.0 to 11.0% of an area of the third region.

    Abstract: An element body of a rectangular parallelepiped shape includes a principal surface arranged to constitute a mounting surface, a pair of side surfaces opposing each other and adjacent to the principal surface, and a pair of end surfaces opposing each other and adjacent to the principal surface and the pair of side surfaces. An external electrode includes a sintered metal layer disposed on an end portion of the element body, and a conductive resin layer including a portion positioned on the principal surface and a portion positioned on the sintered metal layer. An end edge of the sintered metal layer is positioned closer to the end surface than a maximum thickness position of the portion positioned on the principal surface. A thickness of the conductive resin layer gradually decreases from the maximum thickness position to the portion positioned on the sintered metal layer.
