Ripple Voltage Differences by Capacitor Type | Ask An FAE #6

Different capacitor types reduce ripple voltage on DC-to- DC converters. Axel demonstrates how 4 different capacitor types affect the ripple voltage on a boost or buck regulator. Each bank of capacitors is the same capacitance. However, the ESR and ESL differences cause a different in the output ripple voltage. The capacitor types compared include X7R Ceramic, Aluminum Polymer, Polymer KO-CAP, and Tantalum MnO2. This episode was recorded at Electronica 2016 in Munich, Germany.
