Tantalum Capacitors are inherently polar devices and may be permanently damaged or destroyed if connected with the wrong polarity. The positive terminal is identified on the capacitor body by a polarity mark and the capacitor body may include an obvious geometrical shape.

However, some Series contain two capacitors connected (negative-to-negative) to form “non-polar” capacitors. Rated voltage  may be applied to these Series in either direction.

Sometimes the product cost may also impact the chosen footprint. For example, if a 1210, 22uF capacitor is more than double the cost of a 1206, then the 1206 component may be preferred. In other applications, the designer may just want to get the maximum capacitance in a limited available footprint. If, for example, there is only room for a 1206 capacitor, the 47uF part will still have the most capacitance even if it loses a larger percentage of its value than the 22uF or the 10uF parts.

The low leakage and high capacity of tantalum capacitors favors their use in sample and hold circuits to achieve long hold duration, and some long duration timing circuits where precise timing is not critical. They are also often used for power supply rail decoupling in parallel with film or ceramic capacitors with low ESR and reactance at high frequency. Tantalum capacitors can replace aluminum electrolytic capacitors in situations where the external environment or dense component packing results in a sustained hot internal environment and where high reliability is important. Equipment such as medical electronics and space equipment that require high quality and reliability make use of tantalum capacitors.

Low-voltage tantalum capacitors are commonly used in large numbers for power supply filtering on computer motherboards and in peripherals due to their small size and long-term reliability.

One of the most common uses for modern low-power potentiometers is as audio control devices. Both linear potentiometers and rotary potentiometers are regularly used to adjust loudness, frequency attenuation and other characteristics of audio signals. The 'log pot' is used as the volume control in audio amplifiers, where it is also called an "audio taper pot", because the amplitude response of the human ear is also logarithmic. It ensures that, on a volume control marked 0 to 10, for example, a setting of 5 sounds half as loud as a setting of 10. There is also an anti-log pot or reverse audio taper which is simply the reverse of a logarithmic potentiometer. It is almost always used in a ganged configuration with a logarithmic potentiometer, for instance, in an audio balance control.

For most power application, half-wave rectification is insufficient for the task. The harmonic content of the rectifier’s output waveform is very large and consequently difficult to filter. Furthermore, the AC power source only supplies power to the load one half every full cycle, meaning that half of its capacity is unused. Half-wave rectification is, however, a very simple way to reduce power to a resistive load. Some two position lamp dimmer switches apply full AC power to the lamp filament for “full” brightness and then half-wave rectify it for a lesser light output.

As the dominant capacitor technology in terms of component quantities, the Multilayer Ceramic Chip Capacitor’s (MLCC) popularity with circuit designers is principally due to its high reliability record and low cost. However, due to the nature of ceramic material the MLCC body can be liable to cracking if mishandled during assembly or used in extreme environments. For this reason cracking in an MLCC body is the most common mode of failure for PCB mounted MLCC components.

Limited resources of natural quartz crystal suitable for direct electronic or optical use are available throughout the world. World dependence on these resources will continue to decline because of the increased acceptance of cultured quartz crystal as an alternative material; however, use of cultured quartz crystal will mean an increased dependence on lascas for growing cultured quartz.

Trends indicate that demand for quartz crystal devices should continue to grow, and consequently, quartz crystal production should remain strong well into the future. Growth of the consumer electronics market (for products such as personal computers, electronic games, and cellular telephones) will continue to drive global production. The growing global electronics market may require additional production capacity worldwide.

In the past several years, cultured quartz crystal was increasingly produced in the world, primarily in Asia. Electronic applications accounted for most industrial uses of quartz crystal; other uses included special optical applications.Virtually all quartz crystal used for electronics was cultured rather than natural crystal. Electronic-grade quartz crystal was essential for making filters, frequency controls, and timers in electronic circuits employed for a wide range of products, such as communications equipment, computers, and many consumer goods, such as electronic games and television receivers.

Quartz crystal is the best material for frequency-control oscillators and frequency filters in electronic circuits.

Kingtronics offers leaded quartz crystal HC49UHC49S and SMD quartz crystal HC49SMD.If you want more details ,please visit website www.kingtronics.com for full specification.

Multi-layer ceramic chip (MLCC) capacitors are used quite often in dc-dc converter input and output filters. They have low ESR, low ESL, and low cost. They also have no major reliability problems associated with them.

All these properties make them suitable for power management applications. There are still, however, some issues to consider when using these capacitors in dc-dc converter circuits. Some ceramic capacitors can lose a lot of their value under certain conditions. This lost capacitance can degrade the transient response of a dc-dc converter, or it can even make the control loop of the converter unstable.

Telephone / fax / modem protection

Telephones, faxes and modems are equipped with sophisticated but sensitive electronics. Typical circuits used to protect them with surge arresters are shown in following Fig.

These arresters protect against common-mode interference voltages, i.e. surge voltages that appear in both lines to ground. In the event of an over voltage, the arrester protects both exchange lines by conducting the surge current away to ground.

Kingtronics International Company was established in 1995 located in Dongguan City of China to handle all sales & marketing for factories located in Chengdu, Sichuan and Zhaoqing, Guangdong, China. In 1990, we established the first factory to produce trimming potentiometer and in 1999 we built up new factory in Zhao Qing, Guangdong. Now with around 850 workers, Kingtronics produce trimming potentiometers, dipped tantalum capacitors, multilayer ceramic capacitors, and diode & bridge rectifier. We sell good quality under our brand Kingtronics, and Kt, King, Kingtronics are our three trademarks. All our products are RoHS compliant, and our bridge rectifier have UL approval.
