Ceramic Capacitors: The Smart Replacement for Electrolytic Capacitors (Whitepaper)

MLCC Replacement of Electrolytics_Page_01

Capacitors are used to smooth, decouple and filter electronic circuits. This paper focuses on the relative benefits and detractors of electrolytic capacitors in comparison with electrostatic capacitors; specifically aluminum and MnO2 solid electrolyte tantalum electrolytic capacitors vs. multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs). A strategy for use of ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) instead of electrolytic capacitors is presented and a replacement guide is presented to aid the designer in the use of MLCCs in place of electrolytic capacitors for these applications.
