This electronics tutorial is on capacitors, how they work and some practical applications.
In this video I cover:
* What is a capacitor?
* How do capacitors work?
* Characteristics of capacitors – ESR (equivalent series resistance), ESL (equivalent series inductance), impedance at different frequencies.
* How dielectric, plates and distance account for capacity.
* RC time constant
* How to calculate the value of a capacitor using the RC time constant and an oscilloscope?
* Effect of DC and AC on a capacitor and impedance.
* Capacitors connected in series and parallel.
* Capacitors and coupling / decoupling / filtering.
* Capacitor role in digital electronics – ADC (analog to digital converters)
* Variable air capacitors
* How to choose a capacitor based on capacity, frequency, operating voltage, temperature and ESR.
* Tools to measure and troubleshoot capacitors – multimeters LCR meters, ESR meters.
* Safety and capacitors – how to safely discharge capacitors – http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Constructing+a+Capacitor+Discharge+Tool/2177/1
* The future of capacitors – supercapacitors, hybrid capacitors, ultra capacitors, double layer capacitors to power electronics and cars?

Practical application of capacitors used to filter ripple in an AC to DC power supply:

Why Is Coby Electronics NOT Honoring Warrantees?

Author: admin  |  Category: Electronics

electronics Coby electronics seems to have quietly gone out of business over the summer. Or rather, the original company is gone and a whole new entity has taken over the name and the product. But it seems customers who bought Coby products aren’t getting their warranties honored. Will the new company, Gordon Brothers Group, provide customer care and service? …don’t hold your breath.
