Are there any SMD components that can bear 1kV voltage?

In my current design, just for uniformity I wish to keep all the components as SMD. There is one copper line on the PCB which goes up to 1000V (with current in milliamps obviously,) for which I need to attach a resistor and capacitor across it. Are there any SMD components that I can use?

Yes. They are usually available in online shops. Some models can even stand up to 2 kV and 3 kV. However, clearance and creepage requirements are often larger. Sometimes it would require potting to actually pass the requirements of that standard.

And, putting multiple resistors and capacitors in series is often a better alternative. But when doing that, do also pay attention to the required insulation distances.

What Others Are Asking

How can I determine BGA land pad diameter for given ball diameter?

I’m working on a project which requires the use of a CSP package. The product’s datasheet provides ball pitch and ball diameter but nothing about the preferred land pad diameter.
How can the pad diameter be worked out from these figures assuming an NSMD land?

What is the difference between a prototype PCB and a production PCB?

My project have gone through from design, prototype to mass production after lots of discussion and adjustment. Now the manufacturer are making our products in their product lines. And I would like to know is there any differences between the prototypes in my hand now and the final products output by the manufacturer?
