What happens if you over-voltage a ceramic capacitor
I have 22uF SMD 1210 ceramic capacitors rated at 16 volts.
Recently I applied about 25 volts continuously to about 20 of them, so far none has smoked or exploded. It has been 3 days.
I wonder how long they would last and what would be the failure modes.
There is no such thing as bad news.
