Electronic component knowledge - capacitor


Capacitance: A physical quantity that characterizes the ability of a capacitor to hold a charge. The amount of electricity we need to increase the potential difference between the two plates of a capacitor by one volt is called the capacitance of the capacitor. The sign of the capacitor is C. Capacitance is one of the most widely used electronic components in electronic devices. It is widely used in blocking, coupling, bypassing, filtering, tuning loops, energy conversion, control circuits and so on. Capacitance is expressed by C. The capacitance units are Farad (F), Microfarad (uF), and Pefara (pF). 1F=10*6uF=10*12pF


1 Farad (F) = 1000000 microfarad (μF) 1 microfarad (μF) = 1000 nanofarads (nF) = 1,000,000 picofarads (pF)

Model Nomenclature of Capacitors: The model of domestic capacitors generally consists of four parts (not applicable to pressure sensitive, variable, vacuum capacitors). Names, materials, categories, and serial numbers are represented in turn.


Polarity discrimination method of electrolytic capacitor: It can be measured with a multimeter. First discharge the electrolytic capacitor, then connect the test leads to the two ends. The swing is large, but it should be noted that the positive pole of the pointer table is the capacitor. The negative pole, the digital meter is reversed, and, between the two measurements, the capacitor must be discharged. (2) Use the length of the pin to distinguish the positive and negative long legs from positive and the short legs to negative; the black block with the mark on the capacitor is negative. There are two semicircles on the position of the capacitor on the PCB, and the pin corresponding to the semicircle of the color is the negative pole.


Classification of capacitors:


According to their polarity, they are divided into two categories: polar capacitors (such as electrolytic capacitors) and non-polar capacitors.

According to the structure, there are three categories: fixed capacitors, variable capacitors, and trimmer capacitors.

According to electrolyte classification: organic dielectric capacitors, inorganic dielectric capacitors, electrolytic capacitors and air dielectric capacitors.

According to the purpose: high frequency bypass, low frequency bypass, filtering, tuning, high frequency coupling, low frequency coupling, small capacitors.


Capacitor capacity indication:


1. Direct labeling method: directly marked with numbers and unit symbols. For example, 01uF means 0.01 microfarad, and some capacitors use "R" to indicate a decimal point. For example, R56 represents 0.56 microfarad.

2, the text symbol method: a regular combination of numbers and text symbols to indicate capacity. For example, p10 represents 0.1pF, 1p0 represents 1pF, 6P8 represents 6.8pF, and 2u2 represents 2.2uF.

3, color standard method: the color ring or color point represents the main parameters of the capacitor. The color code of the capacitor is the same as the resistance.

Capacitor deviation glyph: +100%-0--H, +100%-10%--R, +50%-10%--T, +30%-10%--Q, +50%-20% --S, +80%-20%--Z.

Commonly used capacitors: aluminum electrolytic capacitors, tantalum electrolytic capacitors, film capacitors, ceramic capacitors, monolithic capacitors, paper capacitors, trimmer capacitors, ceramic capacitors, glass glaze capacitors, mica and polystyrene dielectric capacitors.


Electronic component knowledge - inductor


Inductor: The inductor coil is wound around the insulating tube by one turn of the wire. The wires are insulated from each other, and the insulating tube can be hollow. It can also contain a core or a magnetic powder core, referred to as an inductor. Although not used much in electronic production, they are equally important in circuits. Inductors, like capacitors, are also energy storage components that convert electrical energy into magnetic energy and store energy in a magnetic field. The inductor is denoted by the symbol L, and its basic unit is Henry (H), which is commonly used in millihenry (mH).


Inductor classification:


Classified by inductance: fixed inductance, variable inductance.

Classified by winding structure: single layer coil, multilayer coil, honeycomb coil.

Classified according to the nature of the magnetizer: air core coil, ferrite coil, iron core coil, copper core coil.

Classified according to the nature of the work: antenna coil, oscillating coil, choke coil, trap coil, deflection yoke.

Inductor action characteristics: It often works with capacitors to form LC filters, LC oscillators, etc. In addition, people also use the characteristics of the inductor to manufacture the choke, transformer, relay, etc.; the characteristics of the inductor are exactly opposite to the characteristics of the capacitor, which has the characteristic of preventing the passage of alternating current and allowing direct current to pass.


There are many inductive coils on the radio, almost all of which are made of an air-wound coil wound around an enameled wire or wound on a skeleton core and a core. There are antenna coils (which are made of enameled wire wound on magnetic bars), intermediate frequency transformers (commonly known as mid-week), input and output transformers, and so on.


Commonly used inductors: single layer coil, honeycomb coil, ferrite core and iron powder core coil, copper core coil, color code inductor, choke (choke), deflection coil

Transformer: It consists of a core and a copper coil wire wound around an insulating skeleton. The insulated copper wire is wound around the plastic skeleton, and each skeleton needs to be wound and input and output two sets of coils. The middle of the coil is insulated with insulating paper. After winding, many core sheets are inserted in the middle of the plastic skeleton. This makes it possible to significantly increase the inductance of the coil. The transformer uses electromagnetic induction to transfer electrical energy from one of its windings to the other. The transformer has an important function in the circuit: the AC signal is coupled to block the DC signal, and the voltage ratio of the input and output can be changed; the impedance of the circuit is well matched by the transformer to obtain the maximum transmission signal power.


Relay: It is an electromechanical switch. It uses an enameled copper wire to wrap a few hundred to several thousand turns on a round iron core. When a current flows through the coil, the round iron core generates a magnetic field and the upper side of the round iron core The iron plate with the contact piece is sucked to open the first contact and turn on the second switch contact. When the coil is de-energized, the core loses its magnetic properties, and due to the elastic action of the contact copper piece, the iron plate leaves the iron core and resumes connection with the first contact. Therefore, it is possible to control the switches of other circuits with a small current. The entire relay is protected by a plastic or plexiglass dust cover, and some are fully sealed to prevent electro-oxidation.


Electronic component knowledge - semiconductor devices


Semiconductor: It is a substance with special properties. It is not completely conductive like a conductor, and it is not electrically conductive like an insulator. It is somewhere in between, so it is called a semiconductor. The two most important elements of semiconductors are silicon.


Semiconductor classification: Semiconductors are mainly divided into diodes, transistors, thyristors, and integrated circuits.


Diode classification: Zener diodes for voltage regulation, switching diodes for digital circuits, varactor diodes for tuning, and photodiodes, etc. The most commonly seen are LEDs, rectifier diodes... Diodes are used in circuits. "D" indicates; the LED is indicated by "LED"; the Zener diode is indicated by "Z".


Diode polarity discrimination: (1) Ordinary diode: Generally, the polarity is indicated on the outer casing of the diode. Most use a ring of different colors to indicate the negative, and some are directly marked with a "-". (2) The polarity discrimination of the LED can be judged from the internal structure of the pin and the tube. If the pin is not cut, it is generally believed that the long leg of the LED is positive, the short pin is negative, and the vertical The polarity discrimination of electrolytic capacitors is consistent. From the internal structure of the die, the die is composed of two parts of the large and small lobes. The large lobes have a conical crater for collecting light to increase the brightness. The two lobes are connected together by a thin metal wire in the middle, and the small lobes of the die are connected. Connected to the long-leg positive electrode, the short-legged negative electrode is connected to the large-valve portion of the die. (3) The multimeter ohm file is used to judge that when the forward conduction is small, the resistance value is small, and the black meter pen is connected to the positive pole of the diode. The jingle is called "black small, red and big negative."


Detection of common diodes: The polarity of the diode is usually marked on the package. If there is no mark, it can be judged by measuring the forward and reverse resistance of the multimeter resistance file (usually R×100 or ×1K)


Detection of ordinary light-emitting diodes: (1) The use of a pointer-type multimeter with a ×10kΩ block can roughly judge the quality of the light-emitting diode. Normally, the forward resistance of the diode is tens to 200 kΩ, and the value of the reverse resistance is ∝. If the forward resistance value is 0 or ∞, and the reverse resistance value is small or 0, it is easily damaged. This kind of detection method can't see the illuminating condition of the illuminating tube in reality, because the ×10kΩ block can not provide a large forward current to the LED. (2) It can accurately measure the light and electric characteristics of LEDs with 3V regulated source or two series of dry batteries and multimeter (pointer or digital). To do this, connect the circuit as shown in Figure 10. If the measured VF is between 1.4 and 3V, and the brightness of the light is normal, it can be said that the light is normal. If VF=0 or VF≈3V is measured and does not emit light, the light-emitting tube is broken.


Detection of infrared light-emitting diodes: Due to infrared light-emitting diodes, it emits infrared light of 1 to 3 μm, which is invisible to the human eye. Usually, the emission power of a single infrared light-emitting diode is only a few mW, and the angular distribution of the luminous intensity of different types of infrared LEDs is also different. The forward voltage drop of an infrared LED is generally 1.3 to 2.5V. Because the infrared light emitted by the human eye is invisible, the detection method of the visible light LED can only determine whether the positive and negative electrical characteristics of the PN junction are normal, and it is impossible to determine whether the illumination condition is normal or not. For this reason, it is best to prepare a photosensor (such as a 2CR, 2DR type silicon photocell) as a receiver.


Transistor: A triode is an electronic component consisting of two PN structures with three poles, a base (B) collector (C), and an emitter (E).

Triode function: The triode mainly plays a role of current amplification and switching in the circuit; it also acts as an isolation.

Generally, the small and medium power transistors are obeyed in order from left to right (provided that the medium and small power plastic triodes are oriented toward themselves, and the three pins are placed downwards, then ebc from left to right)



Field effect transistor: MOS field effect transistor, that is, metal-oxide-semiconductor type field effect transistor, abbreviated as MOSFET (Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Field-Effect-Transistor), is an insulated gate type.


The basic working principle of a metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor is to induce a conductive channel in the semiconductor to operate by the electric field effect of the semiconductor surface. When the gate G voltage VG is increased, the majority carrier carriers on the surface of the p-type semiconductor are gradually reduced and depleted, and the electrons gradually accumulate to the inversion. When the surface reaches the inversion, the electron accumulation layer will form a conductive channel between the n+ source region S and the n+ drain region D. When VDS ≠ 0, a large current IDS flows between the source and drain electrodes. The gate-source voltage required to bring the semiconductor surface to a strong inversion is called the threshold voltage VT. When VGS>VT and take different values, the conductivity of the inversion layer will change, and different IDS will be generated under the same VDS to realize the control of the source-drain current IDS by the gate-source voltage VGS.


Field effect classification: FETs mainly include junction field effect transistors (JFETs) and insulated gate field effect transistors (IGFETs). The substrate (B) of the insulated gate field effect transistor is connected to the source (S), and its three electrodes are a gate (G), a drain (D) and a source (S), respectively. The transistor is divided into an NPN and a PNP tube, and its three poles are a base (b), a collector (c), and an emitter (e). The G, D, and S poles of the FET have similar functions to the b, c, and e poles of the transistor. The difference between the insulated gate effect transistor and the junction field effect transistor is that their conduction mechanism and current control principle are fundamentally different. The junction tube uses the width variation of the depletion region to change the width of the conductive channel to control the drain current, and the insulation. The gate field effect transistor controls the current by changing the conductive channel by the electric field effect of the semiconductor surface and the amount of electric induction charge. The difference in their properties makes the junction FET often used in the amplifier input stage (pre-stage), and the insulated gate FET is used in the final stage of the amplifier (output stage). The FET works the same as the triode, except that they are voltage-controlled components, one is a current-controlled component, and the FET has only one PN junction.


Precautions and detection methods for field effect classification: MOS FETs are more "squeaky". This is because its input resistance is very high, and the gate-source capacitance is very small, it is easily charged by external electromagnetic field or static electricity, and a small amount of charge can form a relatively high voltage on the interelectrode capacitance (U =Q/C), the tube is damaged. Therefore, each pin is twisted together at the factory, or installed in the metal foil, so that the G pole and the S pole are equipotential to prevent accumulation of static charge. When the tube is not in use, all leads should be shorted. Care should be taken when measuring and taking appropriate measures against static electricity. Before measuring, short-circuit the human body to the ground before touching the MOSFET pins. It is best to connect a wire to the ground on the wrist to keep the human body and the earth at the same potential. Then separate the pins and remove the wires. Set the multimeter to R × 100, first determine the grid. If the resistance of one foot and the other foot is infinite, it is proved that this foot is the gate G. The exchange meter weight measurement, the resistance value between S-D should be several hundred ohms to several thousand ohms, where the resistance value is smaller, the black meter pen is connected to the D pole, and the red meter pen is connected to the S pole. The 3SK series produced in Japan, the S pole is connected to the tube, and it is easy to determine the S pole. The G pole is suspended, the black meter is connected to the D pole, the red meter is connected to the S pole, and then the G pole is touched with a finger, and the needle should have a large deflection. The dual gate MOS field effect transistor has two gates G1, G2. In order to distinguish, the G1 and G2 poles can be respectively touched by the hand, and the G2 pole is deflected by the hand to the left side. At present, some MOSFET tubes have a protection diode between the G-S poles, and it is not necessary to short-circuit each pin at ordinary times. For other related understandings, I will not elaborate, as long as everyone can know.


Integrated circuit: An integrated circuit is a device with a special function that integrates components such as transistors, resistors, and capacitors on a silicon substrate. The English is abbreviated as IC, also known as a chip. It is represented by "U" in the circuit.


Integrated circuit classification: Integrated circuits are divided into two major factions, analog and digital, according to different functional uses, and the specific functions are numerous, and their applications cover all aspects of human life. Integrated circuits are classified into large-scale, medium-scale and small-scale based on internal integration. Its packaging comes in many forms. "Dual in-line" and "single inline" are the most common. Soft-packaged ICs for consumer electronics, and chip-packaged ICs for precision products.


Notes on the use of integrated circuits: Most ICs use CMOS components as the core integration. For CMOS ICs, special attention should be paid to preventing electrostatic breakdown ICs. It is best not to solder them with ungrounded soldering irons. Also use the IC to pay attention to its parameters, such as operating voltage, heat dissipation, etc. The digital IC uses a working voltage of +5V, and the analog IC operates at different voltages.
