Tips: Polarity of Tantalum Capacitor
Tantalum capacitors are exceptionally polarized devices. While aluminum electrolytic capacitors, which are polarized as well, might survive a briefly applied reverse voltage, tantalum capacitors are very sensitive to reverse polarization. If a reverse polarity voltage is applied, the dielectric oxide breaks down, sometimes forming a short circuit. This short circuit may later cause thermal runaway and destruction of the capacitor. It should be noted that tantalum capacitors usually have their positive terminal marked, in contrast to aluminum electrolytic capacitors, which have their negative terminal marked on the casing.
