    Hey guys, I'm having trouble sourcing a thru-hole 10uf (6.3v or 10v) tantalum or ceramic cap' with 1 ohm ESR. All of the tantalum caps I've found at Mouser are 2 ohms or more. Any suggestions, please?

    TIA, Mike

    Try looking at a SMD cap. Mouser has 17 hits all "in stock." for SMD.

    Hey, it's 2014. All the newer better caps are gonna be SMD.

    If someone has recently sourced a through hole 'Vcap' part for their 32MX project, I'd really appreciate your help.

    Thanks in advance.

    Cheerful regards, Mike

    Have you thought about two caps in parallel?

    I think you would have to go higher voltages/higher values to get the ESR rating under 1 Ohm.
