• What is the difference between standard and conductive polymer TCs?
    • The cathode terminal material differs between the two. Standard TCs use manganese dioxide (MnO2) while conductive polymer types (i.e. ROHM's TCO/TCTO series) feature an organic substance, which is less combustible and provides much lower ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance) characteristics (typically 1/10th). This makes them ideal for high frequency and large current applications.
