I have a simply question. For DC power supply, can the general 0402/0603 ceramic capacitor be used for bypass capacitor?

ceramic caps look almost exactly like the classical model of a parallel plate capacitor: a square or circular-shaped ceramic dielectric coated with conductors on each flat face .. see picture below ..
This simple construction ensures 100% symmetry, in other words, no-polarity ..

The datasheet of TPS79601 says use 1 uf ceramic capacitor at output for stability.
Can I use normal 100n smd 0805-size and a smd tantalum 10uf capacitor at output instead of ceramic capacitors?
I do not have ceramic capacitors.

If you had ever taken a look at capacitor manufacturer or distributor catalogs, you won't need to ask. You hardly won't find a ceramic capacitor with 275 VAC rating and more than a few 10 nF capacitance. Furthermore, your schematic already suggests a reasonable package size (22.5 mm pin distance). Metallized polyester is basically a good choice.

ceramic and Al electrolytics have wide tolerances, high leakage and high temperature coefficients. They cannot be relied on to provide accurate timings. The collector-emitter leakage of Q8 may also be an additional source of inaccuracy. Moreover, although I haven't had time to analyze your circuit, it does not comply with the st

Class 2 ceramic capacitors change capacitance and dissipation factor with time as well as temperature, voltage and frequency. This change with time is known as aging. Aging is caused by a gradual re-alignment of the crystalline structure of the ceramic and produces an exponential loss in capacitance and decr

Good response to current transients (during rapid charge/discharge
cycles when PLL is locking). Compare PLL settling times if a

Capacitance vs. Temperature change is small like C0G.

chip parts that are slightly damaged (like microcracks) can give off shot noise. Try replacing the part with a different manufacturer's part and see if problem goes away--you could have a bad lot. Tantalum capacitors can have some "sputtering" shot noise if there is a big voltage across them. And of course any electrolytic cap can have all sorts
