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 […]
