I can't tell if these need to be polarized caps?
I have used these linear regulators in the past......but this one is rated for up to 2A
ok.. usually when I see a schematic (not a pro.. just a hobby guy).. the cap 'symbol' usually shows a specific one that means polarized or not. I see nothing that shows me either way on that diagram in the datasheet.I'm not 'wanting' to do polarized.... just trying to follow the schematics usually. I thought sometimes you needed polarized caps that NEEDED to be (required) connected to the correct GND/VCC 'rails'...I had two -through hole- caps in the schematic (from a previous project).. I changed them to be 1206 footprints..I then started to question:* Do they need to be polarized? (I guess your saying no then....correct?.... and thank you for the explanation line)* If they needed to be.. is that even a realistic part? (1206 electrolytic caps?)
