Capacitor choices in power-related applications

Piezoelectric motors are increasingly popular for linear motion, but the design of the accompanying drivers is very different from those used by traditional electromagnetic motors.
DC-DC converters operate at all power levels and complexities. At some low levels it can make sense to design and ‘make it yourself,’ but at higher powers, a pre-assembled module becomes more cost-effective. New ‘micromodules’ shift that point to lower levels.
High-voltage Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs) are great for roles such as coupling, DC blocking, snubbing, or power-supply resonators. There are barriers to miniaturization, however.
The goal to increase energy efficiency and reliability, while reducing overall solution size, is prevalent in modern power-electronics applications.
