According to the medium, capacitors can be divided into inorganic dielectric capacitors, organic dielectric capacitors, and electrolytic capacitors three categories.
1. Inorganic dielectric capacitors: including familiar ceramic capacitors and mica capacitors, we will often see ceramic capacitors on the CPU. Ceramic capacitors have excellent comprehensive properties and can be used in GHz-class UHF devices, such as CPU/GPU, thus its price is also very expensive.
2.Organic dielectric capacitors: such as thin-film capacitors, which are often used in loudspeakers with their precision, high temperature, and high-pressure resistance.
3. Electrolytic capacitors: known as aluminum capacitors. The traditional method of classifying electrolytic capacitors is based on anode materials, such as aluminum, tantalum, or niobium. However, this method of judging capacitance performance based on the anode is out of date. At present, the key to determine the performance of electrolytic capacitance lies not in the anode, but in the electrolytic, cathode. According to the classification of cathode materials, electrolytic capacitors can be divided into electrolyte, manganese dioxide, TCNQ organic semiconductors, solid polymer conductors, and so on.
