Tantalum Capacitor Color Code Calculator

This calculator requires the use of Javascript enabled and capable browsers. This calculator is designed to give the value of color coded tantalum capacitors. They are usually tear drop shaped and are all low voltage. Most capacitors actually have the numeric values stamped on them, however, some are color coded as resistors are. You may wish to check out our Resistor Color Code Table And Calculator. The capacitor's first and second bands are the significant number bands, the third is the multiplier, followed by the percentage tolerance band (though not all tantalum caps have a tolerance band) and the voltage band. If there are only four colors, the last is the voltage and there is not tolerance ID. Select the band values from the individual fields. After clicking on Calculate, the calculator will use the selected conditions for all of the bands and try to make a calculation.
