The technology of supercapacitors and batteries varies widely. Whether it’s caused by how the part is constructed or the materials used, there are advantages and disadvantages to both technologies.
From our KAIC lab, William demonstrates how four different capacitor types affect the ripple voltage on a boost or buck regulator. Each technology of capacitors is compared using the KAIC-RCE-001 board, which uses the same output capacitance bank at the output of a switching regulator.
There are many different ceramic capacitor types. What do these 3 letter designations mean and what other factors to consider when using ceramics.
There are so many more devices around us that use proximity sensor technology than you'd think. This technology is already being used in areas like automotive, industrial, home automation, and home appliances. The possibilities are endless! Learn all about how proximity sensors work, various applications, and how KEMET's line of sensors are paving the way for the future.
Designing for AC circuits requires thinking differently about MLCC choices
Tuesday, March 26th, 2019
For some time MLCCs have been used in AC circuits primarily as safety devices, but what about non-safety applications? KEMET’s new 250 VAC rated MLCCs are ideal for non-safety critical applications such as: AC-DC converters, AC filtering, power factor correction, and power supply.
