Understanding Capacitors. Design Note 23

TANTALUM As you know, Capacitors are inevitable parts of an electronic circuit, without which the circuit design is incomplete. Different types of capacitors are used in electronic circuits; each performs a function in the circuit. But basically, all the capacitors act as energy storing and transferring devices. Let us discuss the capacitor types, identification methods and functions.

Familiarize Electronic Components Part XIV – Colour Coded Capacitor

Usually the value of Capacitor is printed on its body. In Disc and Polyester capacitors, the value is indicated in PF, uF etc or as EIA code. But in some capacitors, the value is represented as coloured rings as in the case of Resistor. The value can be determined using the standard resistor colour code chart. Tantalum bead capacitor is identified in a different way with colour code.
