Capacitor Design & Characteristics

For each component type we will discuss the materials used in the design, how differences in construction techniques affect their performance, and important characteristics to consider in your design.

  • Ceramic Capacitors
  • Tantalum Capacitors
  • Polymer Capacitors
  • Film X&Y and Power Film Capacitors
  • AC Line Filter
  • Filters
  • Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors

Application Areas

Applying the information learn in the previous sections, discussions focus on how to apply those characteristics to real-world applications.

  • Parasitics in Capacitors
  • Dielectric Comparisons
  • Tantalum Capacitors versus Polymer Capacitors and MLCC’s
  • Self Resonance Frequency
  • X2 Suppression Capacitors
  • AC Line Filters
  • Self Heating
  • Film versus Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors
