Soldering Guidelines – High Voltage Ceramic Capacitors

Solder attachment of high-voltage ceramic capacitors is a critical process in the assembly of electronic systems.  Along with the need to ensure a robust connection, the brittle nature of ceramic capacitors requires attention to numerous soldering process details to avoid both infant mortality and reliability issues in the future. A primary consideration in soldering of […]

Ceramic Capacitor & Dielectric Materials

Ceramic capacitor advantages include low cost, small size, transience resistance, and being non-polarized. However, their weaknesses include having a large voltage coefficient and aging rate, which becomes increasingly problematic as industry standards move towards smaller and smaller capacitors. A large voltage coefficient causes a capacitor to be unstable over VDC, or Volts of Direct Current. The class of […]
