Unlike multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC), the SMD versions of LICC capacitors have the terminals on the long side of the component. This reduces the distance and decreases the area of the current loop of the inductor. This reduction may well be in excess of 50%. An LICC capacitor in SMD code 0306 therefore has a much lower Equivalent Series Inductance (ESL) than an MLCC capacitor in 0603 format.
