Real-Life Models

Non-ideal electronic components exhibit parasitic effects. Depending on the usage, they may show a very different behaviour than the ideal ones. More precise models can sometimes be obtained from their manufacturers or vendors. However, first oder approximations exists that can give satisfactory result in many cases. A few of these simple models are presented in this chapter.

A model for a resistor (case 0603) is depicted in figure 9.14. Conclusion:

Figure 9.15: simple equivalent circuit of a 0603 ceramic capacitor

A model for a (ceramic) capacitor (case 0603) is depicted in figure 9.15. Conclusion:

Figure 9.16: simple equivalent circuit of an electrolyte capacitor

Electrolyte capacitors are quite complicate to model. They also show the biggest differences from sample to sample. Nonetheless, figure 9.16 gives an idea how a model may look like. Conclusion:
