Ceramic Capacitor is an inexpensive, reliable, and effective semiconductor material that makes high-frequency electric power transfer. There are two kinds of ceramic capacitors, namely, conductive and dielectrics high voltage ceramic disc capacitors. Conductive means ‘with air’ or ‘on metal surfaces’. On the other hand, dielectrics mean ‘with air and chemical vapor’ meaning they can be used in damp conditions. The use of this electronic component in electronic devices is to provide a smooth flow of current into the device from its input terminals.
Ceramic Capacitors Explained
In some applications, ceramic capacitors dielectric is used in conjunction with temperature coefficient in order to obtain a more efficient transfer of current. In addition to being used as input terminals in circuits, they are also found in output terminals. They make excellent power supply rails for all types of electrical devices. They are generally preferred over electrolytic capacitors because of their efficiency and durable nature. Ceramic Capacitor can withstand fluctuations in temperatures up to -minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
Ceramic Capacitors can handle two kinds of input voltage, which are AC and DC. AC voltage is measured in volts and can be reached by connecting the lower pole of the capacitor to positive and the upper pole to negative.
The DC voltage is measured in amperes and can be reached either by connecting the positive or negative end of the capacitor to the corresponding terminal on the device or through a connection to an external source. To know the potential difference between the two, measure both the input voltage and the output voltage.
