Choosing a capacitor? Ripple current capability matters as much as Farads

by┬áDerick Stephens, KEMET Corporation Selecting capacitors for decoupling and filtering in power circuits may seem like a basic chore for electronics designers. Getting it right, however, can critically influence reliability and longevity, but is complicated by the fact that parameters tend to change with factors such as the temperature and operating frequency. Proper attention should … Continue reading Choosing a capacitor? Ripple current capability matters as much as Farads
