What is Tantalum Capacitor?

Ceramic Capacitor vs Tantalum Capacitor 2

Minimal variation in capacitance characteristics

Tantalum capacitors (TC) experience very little change in capacitance characteristics due to circuit DC voltage and/or temperature fluctuations, eliminating the need to verify the effective capacitance - unlike ceramic capacitors (MLCC).

No sound problems

In many cases when using ceramic capacitors, audible noise is discovered during final evaluation, which require urgent countermeasures before shipment in order to prevent significant damage from occurring. In contrast, because tantalum capacitors themselves do not resonate, no noise is generated, ensuring worry-free operation.
