    Seeking Your Opinion: The Proposed Kit for the Polymer Capacitor Projects Scheduled for March

    rscasny

      As part of my interest in providing learning experiences and useful information to the element14 community on polymer capacitors, I am planning for March a polymer capacitor project with a free kit.

       

      My goal is to get some polymer capacitors in your hands and have members build any kind of capacitor project. It can be anything as simple as an RC circuit to something more involved like a power supply. It's up to you. It would be nice to see some of caps I include in the kit used in the project. Now, I won't be providing everything for a project build--just the capacitors, a parts box and (hopefully a cap/ESR tester, depending on what my boss agrees to budgetwise).

       

      I figure I will get a lot of opinions on this. That's fine; all of your opinions are usually very interesting! Again, my goal is get everyone more familiar with polymers and I think getting some in your hands, not matter what the projects are, will be a benefit to the community.

       

      So, here is what I am proposing. I'm just pasting in the links. Tell me what you think.
