What is a Filter Capacitor?
A filter capacitor
is an electronic component that removes voltage or signal spikes in
electronic circuits. Capacitors are used as filter devices due to their
ability to absorb and effectively store electrical charges at
predetermined values. This characteristic is used in a filter capacitor
application to soak up or buffer voltage values which exceed set
parameters. Filter capacitors are typically placed across a load or as a
path to ground in circuits. Several different filter capacitor types
include electrolytic, ceramic, and tantalum.
