Subject: Component Derating
I'm looking to upgrade my company's Component Derating Guideline, which was written over 15 years ago. Can you give me some guidance in this? What are the best sources for this type of information as it pertains to today's components?

Subject: MLCC Derating
In a power supply we are designing, there is a multilayer ceramic chip capacitor that can see a significant ripple current. Our normal derating criteria in this case is to calculate the temperature rise of the part, ensure that we still have 10C of margin against the rated max temperature in the worst case environment, and add some additional voltage derating if the part temperature gets within 40C of the max rated temperature. But this allows for a significant temperature rise in the part. Is there a limit on the allowable temperature rise that I should be using?
