The article addresses key attributes and characteristics of each, with special focus on the progress of the ceramic manufacturing industry. Typically, aluminum electrolytic capacitors, commonly known as electrolytic capacitors, are the first choice for SMPS applications. They offer an extremely high level of capacitance per unit volume at a cost that is much lower than alternative devices. One limitation is the strict adherence to polarity that electrolytic capacitors require. Any reversal of applied voltage may result in a catastrophic failure. Electrolytic capacitors operated at higher ambient temperatures can also exhibit high levels of instability, a gradual loss in capacitance, and a significant loss in usable life time. Although tantalums are generally thought to have more desirable performance characteristics than their aluminum counterparts, the long lead times and higher costs of tantalums may limit their usefulness to applications where size and mass are important and where electrolytics are not suitable.

This paper reviews development and qualification work performed on 22°C operating temperature modules based on ceramic thick film multi-layer substrates supporting embedded thick film resistors, assembled passive and active components with 'chip and wire' connections and sealing in hermetic metal and ceramic cavity packages. It considers aspects of development and importantly investigates product qualification which includes shock and vibration at elevated temperatures as well as thermal shock and temperature cycling. In conclusion there is an attempt to answer the question "Has microelectronic MCM technology matured and is it capable of servicing the widespread needs of down well 225°C operating applications in the Oil and Gas industry?".
