A reverse geometry capacitor is a surface mount multilayer ceramic capacitor whose orientation has been rotated by 90° in relation to the terminations i.e. the terminations are located on the “long” side of the device. The equivalent series inductance of a capacitor is greatly dependent on the length of its current loop. This “flipped” configuration shortens the current loop, effectively lowering the capacitor’s parasitic inductance and increasing the speed of energy transfer to the load. If it’s a low inductance device you need for your next design, then a reverse geometry MLCC is one of several technologies available to you.
