18nF/0.018uF 50V Capacitor – SMD 0603
A?capacitor?is a device that stores?electrical energy?in an?electric field. It is a?passive?electronic component?with two?terminals.
The effect of a capacitor is known as?capacitance. While some capacitance exists between any two electrical conductors in proximity in a?circuit, a capacitor is a component designed to add capacitance to a circuit. The capacitor was originally known as a?condenser?or?condensator. This name and its?cognates?are still?widely used in many languages, but rarely in English, one notable exception being?condenser microphones, also called capacitor microphones.
SMD or SMT surface mount capacitors are used in high volume manufacture – quantities used are numbered in the billions. They are small, leadless and can be placed onto modern printed circuit boards using pick and place machines used in modern manufacturing.
There are many different types of SMD capacitor ranging from ceramic types, through tantalum varieties to electrolytics and more. Of these, the ceramic SMD capacitors are the most widely used.
