Capacitors

Tantalum Capacitors have space-saving termination design.

Undertab terminations on MnO2 (TLN Series) and polymer (TCN Series) tantalum capacitors do not protrude outside of case outline, promoting volumetric efficiency and allowing PCB footprint pads to be spaced slightly wider than part itself. Second electrode in package lends to lower self inductance. TLN S case (1206, 1.2 mm max height) and TCN L case (1210, 1.0 mm max height) respectively offer 220...
