The element14 Experimenting with Polymer Capacitors Challenge is an opportunity to “experiment, test, breadboard, or just play around with Polymer Capacitors” and then show what was learned. In this 3rd and final post a Panasonic Polymer Capacitors from the element14 kit will be applied in a low ESR application where ceramic capacitors might otherwise be used.     Experiments to measure ESR and capacitance over a range of values which were completed and documented in Dee ...
The element14 Experimenting with Polymer Capacitors Challenge is an opportunity to “experiment, test, breadboard, or just play around with Polymer Capacitors” and then show what was learned.  In this second post the outcome of the experiments, results and findings for all of the Panasonic polymer capacitors in the element14 kit are presented.  Methods for improving the test procedure and potential further areas for study are discussed.     Background   Wh ...
The element14 Experimenting with Polymer Capacitors Challenge is an opportunity to “experiment, test, breadboard, or just play around with Polymer Capacitors” and then show what was learned.  I am grateful to be one of the competitors selected to receive a Polymer Capacitor Kit for my proposal “Deep Dive into ESR”.  Polymer capacitors offer low Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) and high capacitance in small packages.  Experiments have been carried out whic ...
