Determining Capacitance Values Correctly

  Rutronik

Multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) are reaching the market with ever-greater capacitance values without increasing in size. Unpleasant side effect: It is becoming more and more difficult to measure the correct capacitance value. The values determined by users are frequently too low, which regularly results in significant extra expenditure. However, this situation could easily be avoided if certain...
