Q:

Where can I find a film capacitor's ESR?

A:

Information regarding a film capacitor’s ESR can be found in the series datasheet. For some of KEMET’s surface mount film capacitors, KEMET WebSPICE can be used. KEMET WebSPICE will provide the impedance and ESR of a capacitor for an application’s voltage, temperature, and frequency.
