Subject: Microphonic Effect of SMD Ceramic Capacitors
Problem: An FM demodulator printed circuit board produces an output signal, when the board is vibration tested on a shaker or if it is hit with any hard plastic tool. Mechanically decoupling the relevant capacitors fixes the problem, but this is an expensive solution. Question: Does anybody know about the related dielectric characteristics (e.g. capacity change vs pressure) for different capacitor dielectrica ?
