100uf 16V Electrolytic Capacitor
100uF 16V electrolytic capacitor is a type of polarized capacitor that is commonly used in power management and filtering applications. It consists of a metal can filled with an electrolyte solution and a metal foil that serves as the anode. The anode is coated with a thin layer of metal oxide that acts as the dielectric material, while the electrolyte solution acts as the cathode. The 100uF rating indicates the capacitance value, or the amount of electrical charge the capacitor can store, while the 16V rating indicates the maximum operating voltage. Electrolytic capacitors are known for their high capacitance values and low equivalent series resistance (ESR), making them ideal for use in power supply filtering, decoupling, and smoothing applications. The 100uF 16V electrolytic capacitor is widely available and is considered a reliable and cost-effective solution for power management in various electronic systems.
