Silicon capacitor sales have been tugged to a significant extent owing to the competition from the multi-layer ceramic chip capacitor as essential component of several electronic devices.
Figure 1 is the acoustic image of a ceramic chip capacitor that has a gap-type defect.
Besides, by employing a loaded chip capacitor and an L-shape high-pass filter, the obtained bandwidth are much broadened for both the upper-band and the lower-band, covering the operating bands of 824-960 and 1710-2690 MHz.
As shown in Figure 5 an RF short chip capacitor is introduced which makes the rectenna works just like a folded dipole antenna when it receives the RF energy.
Therefore, the chip capacitor and the 10-mm CPW can be removed to reduce the size.
When engineers go through the task of pinning down the cause of one or more field failures, the cause often turns out to be a damaged or failed multilayer ceramic chip capacitor. The nature of a field failure caused by a bad capacitor may range from total system failure to a failure of one or more system functions, to an intermittent failure, the latter of which can mimic a software problem.
In contrast, the effective series inductance of a chip capacitor will decrease as the part nears the ground plane, as happens to the inductance of all two-wire transmission lines when the conductors are brought together.
Evox Rifa said that under the agreement it would be able to market the stacked film chip capacitor technology developed by Matsushita.
In this case the misplaced chip capacitor has prevented the correct placement.
For example, the C Series is an unleaded chip capacitor for surface mounting with optional tinning.
Three types of capacitors are commonly used: a standard ceramic chip capacitor embedded into the connector body; a tubular ceramic capacitor around the body of the connector pin; and a planar capacitor array for multiple pins.
Such an approach is helpful in finding, for example, small voids in multilayer ceramic chip capacitors. If there is a void within a dielectric layer in a ceramic chip capacitor, tiny leakage currents may slowly coat the interior of the void with metal until a short occurs between the two metal layers.
