13 Facts About Ceramic capacitor


Ceramic capacitor is a fixed-value capacitor where the ceramic material acts as the dielectric.

Capacitance formula of a MLCC Ceramic capacitor is based on the formula for a plate Ceramic capacitor enhanced with the number of layers: where e stands for dielectric permittivity; A for electrode surface area; n for the number of layers; and d for the distance between the electrodes.

Frequency dependent AC resistance of a Ceramic capacitor is called impedance and is a complex ratio of voltage to current in an AC circuit.

FactSnippet No. 1,270,132

At frequencies above the resonance, the impedance increases again due to ESL: the Ceramic capacitor becomes an inductor with inductance equal to Ceramic capacitor's ESL, and resistance equal to ESR at the given frequency.
