Measure Capacitance of Class-II and Class-III Ceramic Capacitors
More InfoLess Info
Care needs to be taken when making measurements on ceramic capacitors, especially Class-II (X7R/X5R) and Class-IIII (Y5V/Z5U). This application note addresses proper capacitance measurement techniques for ceramic capacitors and identifies common errors made upon incoming inspection or after board assembly. The methods outlined here highlight these errors and provides instruction for better electrical measurements and results.
