Anybody got any application note on capacitor selection or an introduction to different type of capacitor ?
Out of the 3 type of dielectric X5R, X7R & CG0 (NP0), which one is the cheapest in term of cost ?
Next, which footprint (0402, 0603, 1210 & etc) is the most common on PCB ?
Thanks a million in advance !

I want to know the footprint for buffer 74LS244 and capacitor 470uF.
One more thing, when I add the footprint TO218AC for TIP140 and TIP 145, the following error message displayed. "Electrical Package TIP147 for comp Q1 has at least one pin(0) which has no corresponding pin on footprint TO218AC"

here at my compagnie we use the IPC land pattern naming conventions. Which is very usefull for almost all components. If we need to have more information we simply append this to the standard pattern name.

Many years ago I did a similar thing with capacitors.
How does it appear in the schematic symbol? I would expect 4 pin numbers (if display is activated) for one capacitor terminal.
It's similar with the below shown part, that represents a through hole or SMD capacitor as assembly variants. Pin numbers are normally hidden. Pin wir

There are many rules of thumb,
Essentially, First, you have to make a proper plan about the priority of signal
routing.Second, proper planning of placement. Third, Inspect important aspect
of Isolation ( loop filters, TX/RX high energy signal trace..), grounding(PA for thermal, SAW for ground return current which affect out-band isolation much),

Usually the working limit of a capacitor is SRF (Series Resonant Frequency). Before that point the reactance of the capacitor is pure capacitive, and after SRF the reactance is inductive.
In some particular applications capacitors are used only at SRF where the equivalent impedance is minimum.

There isn't a special symbol for a ferrite bead, it's just an inductor. The PCB footprint will depend on what type of bead you choose to use. There is a footprint library for "Chip Inductors" that contains various size surface mount footprints. A thru-hole inductor would use the same footprint as a thru-hole resistor or (...)

For estimating pad capacitance you can just use the parallel-plate capacitor formula. Just add this into your simulation (toggle on and off) to see how much the circuit is affected. As frequencies go higher then this is more of a transmission line effect. To truly capture almost all the effects you must use microwave-design techniques where ever

i learnt orcad- 9 but as i tried a lot i am unable to change ( increase ) the hole size of the peds.
if i select a capacitor, i get the hole size too small and i cant get that pcb through.
( example : --> for cap 100/25.. etc. etc..)
please some one explain me how we can change the hole size please.
thanks in adva

Hi, everyone. I have a question about the PCB layout for a 3-stage single chip PA.
As shown in the attached picture, the PA is in QFN package, with 3 stage amplifier inside. Each stage has its own gate and drain pins.
In order to reduce the footprint area, I would like to connect all gate pins together, as well as connect all drain pins toget

C1,C3 may use NP0 ceramic capactior, 50~100p is ok.
C2,C4 may use Electrolytic capacitor, or you can decrease the capacitance then use X7R ceramic capactiors

The purpose of the courtyard is to provide a clear criterion for correct component placement. You can e.g. utilize it in the way, that when placing a number same package components like resistor or capacitor chips, you simply align the courtyard rectangles.
In special cases, you may want to ignore courtyards, e.g. in the said TQFP example. You

Just what it says - your 'scope probe (and the 'scope itself) has a resistance and a capacitance. These might be important if the circuit you are measuring will be influenced by the load the probe puts on it. For instance, a very high impedance circuit (like 10's of MΩ) will definitely be loaded and therefore altered by a normal probe. So you

Since Altium designer I have a problem with the Tools->Annotate Schematics option.

Use the normal resistor RES , the default package is RES40 which is 400mil but you can change it to RES50, RES60 etc.
For electrolytic capacitor you can use the generic model as well, CAP-ELEC and set the proper footprint size

You can convert the coils only to Microstrip Lines.capacitors can not be converted,they would be used as are.
Consider a coil being as a short circuited Microstipline and calculate the length and width regarding to your substrate parameters.It's so straightforward..

The error message means that the footprint (PCB shape) that you have chosen/assigned for the capacitor
has no/or wrong pin numbers assigned to its pads.
