I understand there are advantages and disadvantages against using electrolytic capacitors over others, such as ceramic, but from what I understand the main reason of choosing electrolytic caps is usually because of their larger capacitance.
In the simplest form, why else might you choose electrolytic over other counterparts? I ask purely based on physical size reasons. Both footprint size and height of electrolytic over a ceramic capacitor is much larger.
Using this circuit as an example:
If I could get a ceramic capacitor at the capacitance of 10uF and within my voltage requirements, which from my initial searches I can, what problems would I experience if I were to change, if any?
Fortunately from my searches, 10uF seems to be very close to the max of non-electrolytic capacitors, but as I say I need much smaller components for my design, where size is important.
Finally, when searching SMD footprint standards, the common packages seem to be 0402, 0603, and 0805, where they increase in physical size respectively, but also power rating, which suggests to me I should use as large of a package as possible, but what other attributes from these packages should I pay attention to when selecting?
