Q.How to measure capacitors/Test a Capacitors (9): How do I calculate the insulation resistance and CR product?
Capacitors > Ceramic Capacitors > Multilayer Ceramic Chip Capacitors
A. There are two limits for insulation resistance depending on the component’s rated voltage (see Table 1).
|Rated Voltage||IR Limit Formula|
|25V～50V||10,000MΩ or 500MΩ uF; Whichever smaller.|
|6.3V～16V||10,000MΩ or 100MΩ uF; Whichever smaller.|
Rated Voltage : 16V
Nominal Capacitance : 100,000pF (or 0.1 uF)
IR Limit = min[10,000MΩ or 100MΩ uF/0.1uF]
