Semec SCS Chip Tantalum Capacitor and SCT Dipped Tantalum Capacitor are available with different case sizes and different values.
Tantalum capacitor has excellent wide temperature range, from -55℃ to +125℃, with a minimal amount of degradation in electrical properties throughout this range.
Tantalum capacitors do not lose capacitance like aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors. In fact, the shelf life for Tantalum capacitor is regarded as unlimited.
Also, Tantalum Capacitors do not ware out. If there is an imperfection in the dielectric layer of a Tantalum, the resistance of the manganese dioxide layer of typically will convert to a form that is even more resistive. Also, Tantalum capacitor has superior frequency characteristics than many other type of capacitors and is highly reliable.
These features let Tantalum capacitors are widely used in different area. You can find Tantalum capacitors in laptop, airbag circuitry in cars, cell phone, pagers and many other type of electronic devices.
