App note: Measure capacitance of Class-II and Class-III ceramic capacitors


KEMET’s app note(PDF) on the methods used on measuring capacitance of different classes of ceramic capacitors.

This application note addresses proper capacitance measurement techniques of Class-II (X7R/X5R) and Class-III (Y5V/Z5U) ceramic capacitors and identifies common errors that are made upon incoming inspection or after board assembly. Errors are highlighted and provides instruction for better electrical measurements and results.
