Thanks for this educational bit! This, in part, must explain the growing number of counterfeit capacitors we have been identifying for our customers with our TruView reel-to-reel x-ray inspection tool. We were surprised anyone would be counterfeiting tantalum capacitors, but if they are growing in expense, buying obsolete is a viable option, and when buying obsolete, that opens you up the risk of counterfeiting. And if you don't check 100% of the parts on the reel you procure, how would you know which were the bad ones "salted" in there?-K

This is really a big headache for the designers. The lead time issue with the tantalum capacitor has started quite a long back. Now the aluminum foil shortage issue added more trouble. Moreover 18 weeks of lead time for the ceramic capacitors will really cause in lots of advance planning for the component purchasers in the factory.

Capacitor lead time is really a big issue, looking at every electronic design needs capacitor and the way electronics gadgets have become basic necessity of a common man's life.
