What is a Niobium Oxide Capacitor?
A niobium oxide capacitor contains a layer of Nb2O5 which is formed around NbO (niobium monoxide) grains as the dielectric. Niobium oxide capacitors have stable capacitance, leakage current and ESR parameters over time. This means functionality and performance both remain reliable and consistent. They also do not exhibit any piezo effect and have no voltage dependence, thus making them a good fit in coupling circuits.
Types of Niobium Oxide Capacitors
There are many different kinds of niobium oxide capacitors and at Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by capacitance, tolerance, case size / dimension, packaging type and rated voltage. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.
The most common sizes for capacitance are 10 µF, 47 µF, 100 µF and 220 µF. We also carry niobium oxide capacitors with capacitance as high as 330 µF. Rated voltage can be between 4 V and 10 V, with the most common niobium oxide capacitors having a rated voltage of 6.3 V.
