Abstract: DOWNLOAD TECHNICAL PAPER
Tantalum capacitor technology has been recognized for its parametric stability and long term reliability in the most demanding of applications. Unlike some other capacitor technologies, tantalum capacitors do not exhibit significant capacitance change over time and voltage. The other benefit is that due to its mechanical strength it is possible to manufacture flat & thin designs, so why these type of capacitors are the best fit for tasks such as “can you make higher capacitance in the lowest profile? “ The paper provides an overview of such tantalum capacitors suitable for most demanding sub millimeter size and low profile capacitors down to 0201 and sub 0.6mm max height.
