Ceramic Capacitors HF use

Ceramic capacitors are suitable for moderately high-frequency work (into the high hundreds of megahertz range, or, with great care, into the low gigahertz range), as modern ceramic caps are fairly non-inductive compared to the other major classes of capacitors (film and electrolytic). Capacitor technologies with higher self-resonant frequencies tend to be expensive and esoteric (typically, mica or glass capacitors).

Classes of ceramic capacitors

Class I capacitors: accurate, temperature-compensating capacitors. They are the most stable over voltage, temperature, and to some extent, frequency. They also have the lowest losses. On the other hand, they have the lowest volumetric efficiency. A typical class I capacitor will have a temperature coefficient of 30ppm/C. This will typically be fairly linear with temperature. These also allow for high Q filters - a typical class I capacitor will have a dissipation factor of 0.15%. Very high accuracy (~1%) class I capacitors are available (typical ones will be 5% or 10%). The highest accuracy class 1 capacitors are designated C0G or NP0.

Class II capacitors: better volumetric efficiency, but lower accuracy and stability. A typical class II capacitor may change capacitance by 15% over a -55C to 85C temperature range. A typical class II capacitor will have a dissipation factor of 2.5%. It will have average to poor accuracy (from 10% down to +20/-80%).

Class III capacitors: high volumetric efficiency, but poor accuracy and stability. A typical class III capacitor will change capacitance by -22% to +56% over a temperature range of 10C-55C. It will have a dissipation factor of 4%. It will have fairly poor accuracy (commonly, 20%, or +80/-20%). These are typically used as decoupling or in other power supply applications.

Ceramic Capacitors Knowledge

A ceramic capacitor is a two-terminal, non-polar device. The classical ceramic capacitor is the "disc capacitor". This device pre-dates the transistor and was used extensively in vacuum-tube equipment (e.g., radio receivers) from c.a 1930 through the 1950s, and in discrete transistor equipment from the 1950s through the 1980s. As of 2007, ceramic disc capacitors are in widespread use in electronic equipment, providing high capacity & small size at low price compared to other low value capacitor types.

ceramic capacitor offer a broad range of size vs. performance tradeoffs and are easily the most popular in numbers sold. Ceramic capacitors are available from < 1 pF to 1000s of uF.

Ceramic Capacitors Pros: The main virtue of ceramic capacitors are their relatively high dielectric constants. This can vary from C0G with a K of up to 60, which has excellent electrical properties but is relatively large and expensive, to ceramics with Ks in the tens of thousands but with very poor electrical properties. Large- value ceramics can replace electrolytic capacitors in high-frequency applications like switch-mode power supplies because of their lower ESR. Ceramic capacitors are especially suitable for surface mounting due to their heat resistance, mechanical integrity, and the ability to make them in very small packages at low cost, for portable equipment. This has greatly added to their usage. To some extent ceramics are slowly displacing other types of capacitors.

ceramic capacitor Cons: Low breakdown voltage means that the low-K ceramics (Class 1), the ones with the good electrical properties, have poor volumetric efficiency, and are usually found only in small values. High-K ceramics (Class 2 and higher) have poor electrical properties, which are highly dependent on temperature, voltage, and frequency, plus a significant aging rate. Unlike many other capacitors, ceramics have no self-healing mechanism. This means that manufacturers must maintain a high level of quality control over the dielectric. Ceramics are most cost affective in small sizes at present. Very large ceramics are a bit of a challenge, especially in SMD.
