CAPACITOR BASICS II – Capacitor TypesContinuing with our educational series we discuss the various types of capacitors and their functions. In practice, capacitors are available in many different forms. They can vary by the type dielectric utilized, the size, shape and nature of the electrodes used and the type of packaging employed. All of these variables can strongly affect the characteristics of the capacitor and the type of application for which these devices are most suitable.
For high voltage capacitors, CalRamic only offers ceramic dielectrics, but awareness of the other dielectrics is important when designing a high voltage power supply.
The entire series can be found on our Application Notes page.
