The equivalent series resistance (ESR) of a solid tantalum capacitor is frequency dependent. The curves of Figure 6 are typical of the capacitor values noted, with measurements being made by contacting lead wires 1/4 inch from the ends of the capacitor cases. Since ESR decreases with frequency, AC performance at higher frequencies is considerably better than would be predicted from the 120 Hz ratings.

A typical application for high capacitance, high voltage capacitors is a bulk filter capacitor shown in Figure 1 in a bipolar transistor totem pole configuration high voltage, high capacitance MLCCs are commonly used as input capacitor filters.

To obtain the required capacitance and high voltage rating the MLCCs are often placed in parallel or stacked vertically. This requires careful soldering and attachment processing, due to the larger case sizes required for the application. The basic function of the input capacitor filter is to hold up the rectified power bus line voltage as well as for filtering common mode noise.

Common mode noise flows asymmetrically through both input lines. The current into the load is supplied by the input filter capacitor bank rather than from the power supply, until the point at which the input voltage again equals the voltage across the filter capacitor, see wave forms in Figure 2.

quartz crystal resonator depends on the piezo-electric effect to work. This effect converts a mechanical stress in a crystal to a voltage and vice versa. In this way the piezo-electric effect converts the electrical impulses to mechanical stress which is subject to the very high Q mechanical resonances of the crystal, and this is in turn linked back into the electrical circuit.

The quartz crystal can vibrate in several different ways, and this means that it has several resonances, all on different frequencies. Fortunately the way in which the quartz crystal blank is cut from the original crystal itself can very significantly reduce this. In fact the angle of the faces relative to the original crystal axes determines many of its properties from the way it vibrates to its activity, Q, and its temperature co-efficient. There are three main ways in which a crystal can vibrate: longitudinal mode, low frequency face shear mode, and high frequency shear. A cut known as the AT cut used for most crystals used in traditional radio and electronics circuits uses the high frequency shear mode.

A transmission line arrester also known as a transmission line surge arrester is any arrester that is applied out on the transmission line to reduce the possibility.

The resulting wave when an electrical variation in a circuit such as a transmission line takes the form of translation of energy along a conductor, such energy being always equally divided between current and potential forms. The traveling waves propagate at close to the speed of light and can generate surges at 2-4 times the initial impulse under certain circumstances.

Impulse protective levels of an arrester:

a) Fast front protective level: The highest of either the steep current residual voltage or the front-of-wave impulse spark over voltage.

b) Standard lightning impulse protective level: The highest of the residual voltage at nominal current or 1,2/50 lighting impulse spark over voltage.

c) Switching impulse protective level: The highest of either the maximum residual voltage for the specified switching current or the specified switching impulse spark over voltage.

The equivalent series resistance is the resistive element (R1) of the quartz crystal equivalent circuit. (see Equivalent Circuit below) This resistance represents the equivalent impedance of the crystal at natural resonant frequency (series resonance) ESR is measured by a Crystal Impedance (CI) meter.

ESR values are generally stated as maximum values expressed in ohms. The ESR values vary with frequency, mode of operation, holder type, crystal plate size, electrode size, and mounting structure.

It is worth noting that the ESR value at a given frequency for an AT- strip crystal design is generally higher than that of the standard (round blank) design. This becomes more significant at lower frequencies. When transitioning from a series resonant through-hole HC-49/U type crystal to a smaller surface mount type utilizing an AT-strip crystal, some consideration may be given to the difference in the ESR values produced by different cuts.

The ESR becomes critical when resistance values reach a point were the oscillator circuit cannot adequately drive the crystal. Sluggish start-up or unwanted modes of operation may result.

Equivalent Circuit:

The equivalent circuit (shown in Figure A) depicts electrical activity of a quartz crystal unit operating at its natural resonant frequency. The shunt capacitance (Co), represents the capacitance of the crystal electrodes plus the capacitance of the holder and leads. R1, C1, and L1 compose the "motional arm" of the crystal, and are referred to as the motional parameters. The motional inductance (L1) represents the vibrating mass of the crystal unit. The motional capacitance (C1) represents the elasticity of the quartz, and the resistance (R1), represents bulk losses occurring within the quartz.

Schottky rectifiers have been used in the power supply industry for approximately 15 years. During this time, significant fiction as well as fact has been associated with this type of rectifier. The primary assets of Schottky devices are switching speeds approaching zero-time and very low forward voltage drop (VF). This combination makes Schottky barrier rectifiers ideal for the output stages of switching power supplies. On the negative side, Schottky devices are also known for limited high-temperature operation, high leakage and limited voltage range BVR. Though these limitations exist, they are quantifiable and controllable, allowing wide application of these devices in switch mode power supplies.

High leakage, when associated with standard P-N junction rectifiers, usually indicates “badness,” implying poor reliability. In a Schottky device, leakage at high temperature(75 °C and greater) is often on the order to several milliamps, depending on chip size. In the case of Schottky barrier rectifiers, high-temperature leakage and forward voltage drop are controlled by two primary factors: the size of the chip’s active area and the barrier height (φB).

The EKT Series is a high temperature version of Kingtronics's solid tantalum chip family that offers optimal performance in applications with operating temperatures of up to 125° C. Advancements in materials and testing have allowed for the introduction of this series which delivers a reliability level of 0.5% per 1000 hours at rated voltage at rated temperature. This series is available in five standard EIA case sizes with RoHSCompliant/100% matte tin finish lead terminations as standard.

Other termination options include 90Sn/10Pb finishes and gold for conductive adhesive attachment processes. Capacitance values range from . 0.33uF - 470uF, in voltage ratings from 4 to 50 volts.

Kingtronics has developed an innovative construction platform that incorporates multiple capacitor elements,in parallel, inside a single package. This unique assembly, combined with Kingtronics’s superior processing technology, provides the best combination of high CV, low ESR, and small size in a user friendly, molded, surface mount package.

The fundamental electrical properties of multilayer ceramic capacitors are as follows:

Polarity: Multilayer ceramic capacitors are not polar, and may be used with DC voltage applied in either direction.

Rated Voltage: This term refers to the maximum con tinuous DC working voltage permissible across the entire operating temperature range. Multilayer ceramic capacitors are not extremely sensitive to voltage, and brief applications of voltage above rated will not result in immediate failure. However, reliability will be reduced by exposure to sustained voltages above rated.

Like all other practical capacitors, multilayer ceramic capacitors also have resistance and inductance. A simplified schematic for the equivalent circuit is shown in Figure 1. Other significant electrical characteristics resulting from these additional properties are as follows:

Impedance: Since the parallel resistance (Rp) normally very high, the total impedance of the capacitor is :

The variation of a capacitor’s impedance with frequency determines its effectiveness in many applications.
