RE: Metallized caps where space is tight?

Can you gain room by mounting the part on the "abnormal" side of the PCB?

I'm among the very last people to suggest ceramic dielectric in a coupling cap. position, but your mechanical constraints ARE a problem. Unlike most ceramic caps., NP0/C0G dielectric is tolerable as a coupler. A link to an AVX brand part is provided below. Not surprisingly, the part is big, but lead forming could make it a "winner". Also, some ambient heat is OK.
