Replacing an Electrolytic Capacitor with an MLCC

Guide to Replacing an Electrolytic Capacitor with an MLCC

TDK Corporation

Learn how aluminum and tantalum capacitors were previously used due to the need for large capacitance in output smoothing capacitors, but the difficulty in miniaturizing these electrolytic capacitors hinders reducing circuit space. This module will explore advancements in the technology for thinning and multi-layering MLCC dielectric materials in recent years, enabling the replacement of electrolytic capacitors.
