A multilayer ceramic device suitable for use in surface mount decoupling applications may have a single capacitor or a capacitor array. The device has a capacitor body defining a plurality of electrical terminals on an outer surface thereof. The terminals are interdigitated such that a respective first polarity terminal will be adjacent to a respective second polarity terminal (and vice versa). The capacitor body contains a plurality of interleaved capacitor plates in opposed and spaced apart relation. Capacitor plates of the first polarity are electrically connected to respective first polarity terminals via a plurality of lead structures. Likewise, a plurality of lead structures electrically connect capacitor plates of the second polarity to respective second polarity terminals.
