Another article:

Lots of articles from a Google search on "niobium capacitors."

The article says niobium is ten times cheaper.
But ten times cheaper normally, when tantalum prices are not inflated?
I think KEM mgt claims that tantalum prices will return to normal.

As noted in earlier posts,
the cost of materials is a small part of the cost,
off the top of my head, less than 10% of the cost.

The article says the same production lines can make both.
KEM can switch just as readily as VSH and AVX.
