What is ceramic capacitor?
The ceramic capacitor is a non-polarity device which is found commonly in every electrical device and the dielectric material that is used in the capacitor is a ceramic material. Non-polarity device means the capacitor has no polarities.
What are the types of capacitors used in electronic devices?
Ceramic Disc Capacitors 鈥?These are often used as safety capacitors in electromagnetic interference suppression applications. Multi-layered Ceramic Capacitors 鈥?Ceramic capacitors with multilayer style (MLCC) are widely used and produced capacitors applied in the electronic equipment.
Why do we use ceramic capacitors instead of mica?
In circuits where a small size of capacitor is required Ceramic capacitors comes into picture. These where intially developed in German as replacement for mica. Before 1920鈥檚 due to insulating properties of mica it was used as a dielectric material in a capacitor.
What is the difference between MLCC and ceramic capacitors?
MLCCs are the most produced capacitors with a quantity of approximately 1000 billion devices per year. They are made in SMD (surface-mounted) technology and are widely used due to their small size. Ceramic capacitors are usually made with very small capacitance values, typically between 1nF and 1F, although values up to 100F are possible.
