Questions with Tantalum Capacitors

  • Ask: How do you know if a capacitor is tantalum?

    Answer: A tantalum, or tantalum oxide, capacitor is actually a type of electrolytic capacitor. ... However, tantalum oxide capacitors have a much higher capacitance value for their size. They are more expensive than aluminum oxide, but they are more reliable, more stable and they operate better at certain frequencies.

  • Ask: What is the difference between tantalum and electrolytic capacitors?

    Answer: Most tantalum capacitors are polarized devices, with distinctly marked positive and negative terminals. When subjected to reversed polarity (even briefly), the capacitor depolarizes and the dielectric oxide layer breaks down, which can cause it to fail even when later operated with correct polarity.
