The Imp: C8 tantalum rating
« on: September 13, 2020, 02:59:56 PM »
Does this cap need to be 25v (per the build doc)? Itís off of the Vb rail (4.5v) and doesnít seem to be exposed to a larger potential.

16v is fine. Most 1uf tantalum caps I've seen though are usually 35 volt.

Thanks, Iíve got some 16v caps in my stock and was curious. Iím reading the schematic correctly, right? That itís on the 4.5v rail and only has that potential?

C8 is on the 4.5v rail in a roundabout way. 16v will be fine for cap.
