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 ..

I have a problem with a power supply, the varistor and ceramic capacitor is oftenly burnout. I have replace it with the same type its working normally, but not in along time (2 - 3 days), then its burned again.
can everybody tell me the cause of capacitor and varistor burnout.
thank you. sorry for my english.

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.

3-4 years seems really short.
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

Why people use it in charge pump circuit??
Good response to current transients (during rapid charge/discharge
cycles when PLL is locking). Compare PLL settling times if a
X7R capacitor is used in a loop filter : slower settling than with
Capacitance vs. Temperature change is small like C0G.

capacitor is not working in conducted mode. So pay attention to rated voltage not current. It should be at least 2 times of the voltage apply to. capacitor will lower down the voltage drop, but it would not provide the surge current needed.
The ESR should be less than 1 ohm normally. You could use tantalum or ceramic (...)

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
