It is common knowledge that leads time is often a critical aspect of Procurement of EEE parts for Space Applications. Some specific family types usually suffer from having long lead times (more than 1 year on some occasions), which makes them a major driver on any procurement. One of the most affected families are Space Qualified Panel C Mounted EMI filters.
Tantalum (Ta) capacitors and multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) are two widely accepted capacitor technologies that can be employed in a wide range of electronics applications. Although both technologies perform the same basic function, they are very different in terms of their construction techniques, materials, and performance under various conditions, so it’s important to understand the potential impact of selecting one over the other.
Over the past years, multi-layer ceramic capacitors have undergone significant improvements. The volumetric density has increased several folds. This unfortunately resulted in a big increase in DC and AC bias sensitivity for many parts.
