When doing radio frequency, pay special attention to their Q value when selecting inductors and capacitors. So what is the Q value? What does Q-value mean and why is it important?Today qihe smd machine smt pick and place machine sharing the knowledge of the Q and D values of SMD capacitor.
Quality factor Q: A quality index that represents the ratio of the energy stored in an energy storage device (such as inductor, capacitor, etc.) and resonant circuit to the energy lost per week. The larger the Q value of the component, the better the selectivity of the circuit or network composed of the component.
Quality factor Q
Or Q=reactive power/active power, or the ratio of characteristic impedance to loop resistance.
The higher the Q value, the smaller the loss and the higher the efficiency;
The higher the Q value, the more frequency stable the resonator is and, therefore, can be more accurate. Factor Q is an important parameter indicating the quality of the coil. The size of the Q value indicates the size of the loss of the inductor coil. The larger the Q value, the smaller the loss of the coil; conversely, the greater the loss.smd machine
The definition of quality factor Q is: when the coil operates under an AC voltage of a certain frequency, the ratio of the inductive reactance presented by the coil to the DC resistance of the coil. It can be expressed as follows:
In the formula: W——working angular frequency L——coil inductance R——total loss resistance of the coil
Depending on the use occasion, the requirements for the quality factor Q are also different. For the inductor coil in the tuning loop, the Q value is required to be higher, because the higher the Q value, the smaller the loop loss and the higher the loop efficiency; for the goose coil, the Q value can be lower; and for low frequency Or high-frequency choke, there is no requirement.
In fact, the improvement of Q value is often limited by some factors, such as the DC resistance of the wire, the dielectric loss of the coil bobbin, the loss caused by the core and shielding, and the skin effect during high-frequency operation. Therefore, the Q value of the coil cannot be made very high. Usually the Q value is tens to one hundred, and the highest is only four or five hundred.
The Q value is equivalent to the reciprocal of the D value. The loss angle is the D value: Generally, electrolytic capacitors have a high D value because of their large internal resistance. Their specifications are determined by the capacitance value, which is below 0.1-0.24. Plastic film capacitors have a lower D value, which is 0.001-0.001 depending on their material. Below 0.01. The ceramic capacitor depends on its material. Hi-K type and S/C type are below 0.025. The specifications of T/C type, expressed in Q value, need to be higher than 400-1000.smd machineRead more: Understand the Q and D values of SMD capacitor

What is SMT in engineering?
Surface mount technology is a part of the electronic assembly that deals with the mounting of electronic components to the surface of a PCB. Electronic components mounted this way are called surface-mounted devices (SMD). SMT was developed to minimize manufacturing costs while making efficient use of board space.Qihe SMT company develops and produces all kinds of SMT equipment suitable for world wide market, including pnp machine,reflow oven,stencil printer,pcb handling machines,and other smd machine products.

What is SMT in programming?
Offline Automated Programming vs Inline SMT Programming
Qihe pick and place machine can be programmed directly on the SMT equipment .
Or Coordinates can also be imported csv file through programming software.
Currently supported software such as protel,DXP,Altium Designer,Pads,Candes,proteus,DXP.
Inline SMT programming is a solution to consider for narrow segments of device programming requiring short programming times, with medium to high volume, for just one device type smd machine.
WHAT IS SMT pick and place machine？
SMT (Surface Mounted Technology) is a comprehensive system engineering technology, which covers substrates, design, equipment, components, assembly processes, production accessories and management. When it comes to SMT pick and place machines, the automatic SMT production line requires automatic loading and unloading machine, automatic solder paste printing machine, placement machine, reflow soldering machine, AOI inspection equipment, conveyor,connecting table, etc. For these SMT assembly line equipment, Qihe SMT can offer you machines in prototype SMT line, small SMT production line, mass production SMT line at low SMT line cost.

WHAT IS SMT ASSEMBLY LINE？
With the development of technology, future electronic products will be lighter, smaller and thinner. Traditional assembly technology can no longer meet the requirements of high-precision and high-density assembly. A new type of PCB assembly technology-SMT (Surface Mount Technology) has emerged. SMT Assembly is the use of automated machines to assemble electronic components on the surface of the circuit board. Its density, high speed, standardization and other characteristics occupies an absolute advantage in the field of circuit assembly technology. In addition, SMT assembly has a wide range of uses.
