Q.ESR characteristics (6): What should be taken into consideration when the ESR is a critical parameter in a circuit design?

A. If ESR is a critical parameter for the operation of a circuit, then the design engineer needs to consider two parameters. The first parameter is the operating frequency of the circuit. The second parameter is the overall temperature of the component which includes the external temperature around the component as well as the internal self-heating due to current level.
