Capacitors, inductors, and resistors are the essential passive components used in electrical and electronic circuits.
Capacitors, inductors, and resistors are the essential passive components used in electrical and electronic circuits. They are constructed with a variety of materials: ceramics, metals, conductive polymers, and films.
How Much Do You Know About Polymer Capacitors?
element14 has been talking about polymer capacitors a lot in the last few months. Before we talk too much, we thought we would give Community members a chance to show their stuff. We wrote a 25-question quiz on polymer capacitors for you to take. Have fun!
Experimenting with Polymer Capacitors
We're calling on all of element14's makers, hobbyists, and engineers to experiment with polymer capacitors. Create an experiment with at least one of polymer capacitor from the kit, write 2 blogs, and you'll be in the running to win a Keysight InfiniiVision 1000 X-Series Digital Oscilloscope.
In this video, you will learn about polymer capacitors, including types, differences, characteristics, and how they compare to MLCCs.

The global shortage in Multi-layer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs) is creating a squeeze on getting them. There’s an industry-wide shortage of MLCCs, and lead times, where quoted, are up to 50 weeks on new orders. Companies are struggling to get their hands on MLCCs, which could result in production slowing down or even stopping. We’re already receiving anecdotal evidence of companies having reached line-stops because they can’t get the MLCCs to assemble their printed circuit boards.
So, my question is: how are you being affected by the reported shortage of MLCCs.
