Glossary of electronic components
Change of capacitance against the AC voltage.
The decrease of capacitance over time.
Index of the ability of how much potential energy can be stored. Unit is "F".
1. Stores DC power, enabling charge and discharge.
2. An electronic component which passes the AC (signal and/or high-frequency noise) through and prevents DC.
Change of capacitance against the DC voltage.
The measurement of the ability of a dielectric to store potential energy in external electric fields.
Index of energy loss caused due to the resistivity of dielectric and electrode material.
Substance that can be polarized in external electric fields and stores DC power.
Abbreviation of Electromagnetic Compatibility. The concept of enabling electronic devices to function without EMI.
Abbreviation of Electromagnetic Interference. A disturbance of an electrical circuit caused by external interference of an electromagnetic origin.
Abbreviation of Electromagnetic Susceptibility. The vulnerability of an electric circuit to a disturbance of electromagnetic origin.
Abbreviation of Equivalent Series Inductance. One of the resistive components in an AC circuit. ESL describes the inductive portion of the impedance of electronic components.
Abbreviation of Equivalent Series Resistance. One of the resistant components in an AC circuit. ESR depends on dielectric loss caused by the dielectric material and resistivity of the electrode material.
The extent to which a dielectric material resists leakage current measured under DC voltage.
The charge orientation in dielectrics. Dielectric crystals contain positive and negative sides due to the structure in external electric fields.
A soldering method in which solder is applied to electronic components and then melted in a reflow oven to permanently mount them to a printed circuit board (PCB).
Abbreviation of Surface Mount Device. Components suitable for SMT equipment.
