Iskra - Radio Interference Suppression Capacitors & Filters

Iskra - Radio Interference Suppression Capacitors & Filters

System design engineers have to use many capacitors to filter digital noise & prevent radio interference from spreading from the device.
Some key Iskra advantages are; customisation of the products for your unique needs, compliance with the latest standards, strict quality control, in house metallization process of the film foil and automated manufacturing & testing facilities.

Origin and spreading of interference can be found in devices which, due to their construction produce RF energy. As in devices which produce a wide spectrum of frequencies, due to rapid variations in electrical current intensity. These interferences are mainly spread in three ways...along conductors, by coupling, and by radiation. With frequencies up to approximately 30 MHz, interference is spread mainly along the installed electrical conductors. Frequencies higher than 30 MHz are spread by radiation since interference source dimensions and terminal conductors are in order of size to the wavelength of the radiated interference. Therefore, metal parts have the same function as antennas. In order to provide the best perfomance of communication and other equipment, radio interference has to be reduced. Permitted levels of interference are defined in national and international regulations. Recommendations given by the CISPR (Comite International Special de Perturbation   Radioelectriques) are as follows: CISPR Publ.11, CISPR Publ.14, EN 55011, EN 55014.

Suppression of Interference can be achieved by reducing the interference origin, and preventing the interference from spreading from its origin. Spreading of interference is generally suppressed by suppression components connected to the terminal of the power source of the device (network, battery) and in certain cases, to the source of interference of the device (brushes of the motor, switches, relays), or by shielding the device. Suppression components are capacitors, chokes, filter sets consisting of capacitors, chokes and resistors.

  • Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors vs. Film Capacitors

    The progress in semiconductor design sets the trend in current and future devices of power electronics: it manifests itself particularly in smaller dimensions, as well as in higher voltages and switching frequencies. Referring to intermediate circuit capacitors, this trend leads to aiming at higher energy densities and larger current loads, and – at the same time – decreasing space.

    Under these conditions, especially aluminum electrolytic capacitors and plastic film capacitors offer advantageous solutions. Jianghai has both technologies in the production program and this article gives an overview on the major differences between aluminum electrolytic capacitors and film capacitors.

  • Prudent use of electrolytic capacitors in vibrating applications

    The use of electrolytic capacitors in vibrating applications like motor controllers or power tools, must be considered very carefully regarding specific criteria.
    When you're designing electronic control applications or drives, you have to think about specifications like higher power and miniaturisation.
    If you're designing vibrating applications however, you should not forget to think about vibration resistance and temperature!

  • Miniaturization of HV applications: a solution for every Power Electronics Engineer

    StackiCap™ has been set to revolutionise the world of large, HV(200V – 2kV), X7R Multilayer Chip Capacitors (MLCCs)!

    It dramatically increases the max capacitance values within a size/voltage or can reduce chip sizes. They take up 1/10th of the current footprint dimension and save up to 9/10th of the weight of a stacked cap. The advantages are spectacular on any HV products where pcb space is at a premium and max. capacitance is required in a smaller footprint. Typical applications include power supplies, projector modules, lighting systems and throughout the aerospace sector.
