Tantalum Chip Capacitors, Principles and Manufacturing

The basic concept of the tantalum capacitor can be shown using a conceptual diagram such as shown in Figure 1. There are metal electrodes on both sides of a dielectric material so that charge will accumulate proportional to the voltage when a voltage is applied between the electrodes.
