For those considering X2Y capacitors, please have a look first at this article at speedingedge.com "Comparison of X2Y vs 0402 Capacitors for Decoupling". An 0402 with a better footprint may suffice for most situations. The bottom line is you need to evaluate the caps/footprint for your particular situation.

Gentlemen: My name is Ken Musil, and I work for a company named X2Y Attenuators, LLC. I read your article, “Key methods for controlling EMC” and found it interesting and reasonably informative. I was looking for some mention of the X2Y Technology and was disappointed when there was not any mention of it. Perhaps you are not familiar with the X2Y Technology that provides low inductance filtering and incorporates many of the recommendations you identify in your article within the passive 4 terminal device. Following is a link to the X2Y website, http://www.x2y.com/ which contains a large amount of technical information, published articles and application notes which will help you become more familiar with the technology. Also listed are licensed manufacturers of X2Y products. Please visit the web site, I am sure you will find it informative. If after reviewing the web site you have any questions please contact me. Regards, Ken Musil ken@x2y.com 1-814-835-8180
