COURSE SUMMARY

This tutorial will be presented in two sections. The first 90 minutes covers tantalum & electrolytic capacitors presented by Dr. Yuri Freeman from KEMET. The second half of the session covers a wide range of technologies ranging from ceramic to film, stacked modules and SuperCaps presented by Ron Demcko from AVX.

Tantalum & Electrolytic Capacitors (Dr. Yuri Freeman, KEMET) Students will gain an understanding of capacitor construction and how performance characteristics are affected by time, temperature, voltage and frequency. End applications are discussed along with reliability expectations, common failure modes and de-rating methods for increased lifetime performance. Processing guidelines are presented and the availability and use of simulation models is shown.

Ceramic, Film, Stacked Modules and SuperCaps (Ron Demcko, AVX) Students will gain an understanding of each capacitor technology ranging from construction, electrical performance and reliability. Performance characteristics are discussed relative to time, temperature, voltage and frequency. Distinctions are made between thin film capacitors and power film capacitors. Stacked capacitor modules – traditionally MLCC based are presented. Super capacitor technology is reviewed and super capacitor modules are introduced. A high-level selection guide and de-rating methods is given for all capacitors presented. Links to common simulation sites are provided.
