Seven Fundamental Considerations for Selecting EMI Filters

Seven Fundamental Considerations for Selecting EMI Filters

Although effective EMI filtering is particularly important in high-reliability electronics applications with low-power signals, strict signal fidelity demands, and a high cost of failure, such as satellites and pacemakers, it also plays a critical role in commercial applications that require sensitivity to low-power signals in noisy environments, like instrumentation equipment. To protect electronic circuits from interference, device designers often employ… Interference Technology October 14, 2020 Check out the featured article on page 17. https://interferencetechnology.com/2020-emc-fundamentals-guide/ MORE ABOUT EMI FILTERS EMI Filtering for High Reliability Applications EMI Filters Catalog

Miniature Bulkhead EMI Filters for Aerospace Applications

Miniature Bulkhead EMI Filters for Aerospace Applications

Advances in multi-layer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) manufacturing have led to significant improvements in the voltage and capacitance capabilities of miniature case size capacitors. These advances have extended to ceramic discoidal capacitors, which are employed in most bulkhead-mounted EMI suppression filters. They are now available in smaller packages and make the control of EMI in space- and weight-constrained aerospace applications easier and more reliable. Currently, discoidal capacitors can be manufactured with outer diameters as small as 0.050” with as much as 5,000pF of capacitance. They also have equivalent models, which helps ensure effective… Signal Integrity Journal October 6, 2020 https://www.signalintegrityjournal.com/blogs/12-fundamentals/post/1894-miniature-bulkhead-emi-filters-for-aerospace-applications

Tantalum Polymer vs Aluminum Polymer Performance as an Output Filter Capacitor for Miniature Switching Power Supplies

Tantalum Polymer vs Aluminum Polymer Performance as an Output Filter Capacitor for Miniature Switching Power Supplies

Tantalum Polymer vs Aluminum Polymer Performance as an Output Filter Capacitor for Miniature Switching Power Supplies Written By: Ron Demcko | Ashley Stanziola | Daniel West Abstract: Engineers have questioned the impact performance of converting Aluminum Polymer capacitors to Tantalum Polymer capacitors in applications where MLCCs are present on the output filter ‘bank’ of a small switching power supply. The reasons for designers to convert to Tantalum Polymer capacitors in the design ranged from long term reliability and stability to availability/delivery and company specific design guidelines. This investigation is intended to compare the interchangeability of Tantalum Polymer Capacitors in a design with the original Aluminum Polymer capacitors. The data collected was the measured output voltage ripple on a highly utilized
