Reverse Voltage Behavior of Solid Tantalum Capacitors
Written By: Ian Bishop | John Gill

Abstract:
This paper is intended to give the design engineer an understanding of the effects of reverse voltage operation on the chemical structure and life reliability of a tantalum capacitor. It also aims to show a circuit design engineer about predicting the life performance of a circuit where a tantalum capacitor is subjected to negative voltages.
