This whitepaper, originally presented at CARTS 2013, reviews the design and reliability test data of BME ceramic capacitors. The focus is their potential for high-reliability applications.
Presentation on KEMET's Characterization of Transient Liquid Phase Sintering (TLPS) materials and their use in MLCCs. Presented at Materials Science & Technology in Columbus, OH by Dr. John Bultitude.
Choosing the wrong decoupling capacitors can have a significant impact on your circuit design. Because different capacitor technologies vary under different conditions, you need to understand which is best for you.
The transition to ultra-high definition displays such as 2K and 4K place more demands on LCD driver circuits. With increasing voltage and decreasing panel thicknesses demands, traditional components are no longer sufficient. Backlights are generally modulated in the audible frequency range, which can result in noise from X5R and X7R ceramic capacitors. In circuits where piezoelectric noise isn’t acceptable, polymer capacitors offer quiet operation and long life in very slim packages. [...]
Embedded controllers are available in a range of form factors for various application areas. Regardless of the form factor, they are all powered by a large supply voltage which needs to be converted down to the low voltage rails of the controller. In low profile applications, polymer capacitors offer high capacitance in a reduced footprint. When board space is not at a premium, X7R ceramic capacitors can be utilized. Both polymer and X7R capacitors can be combined with KEMET’s C0G ceramics [...]
