Wet Slug Tantalum Capacitors
Wet slug tantalum capacitors employing silver cases (e.g., MIL-C-39006/21,
/9) should not be used. MIL-C-39006 identifies those capacitor types which are
inactive for new design. If wet slug tantalum capacitors are required due to
special design constraints, only tantalum-cased capacitors meeting MIL-C-
39006/22, /25 should be considered.
As further discussed in Section 5 of this publication, high-voltage
components require special design, manufacturing, screening, application and
derating considerations. Careful dielectric selection along with field control
by means of geometrical guidelines is of paramount importance.
