Capacitor Markings (Ceramic & Monolithic Caps)

IMPORTANT: Values below 100 pF maybe marked in two ways: Two digits (ex: '22' = 22 pF; '47' = 47 pF) OR three digits (ex: '220' = 22 pF; '221' = 220 pF; '222' = 2200 pF) where the third digit is the number of zeros following the first two digits.

Temperature stable capacitors are marked "NPO", "COG" or if a monolyth style may have a 'Black' top.

Performance ratings from CDE Cornell Dubilier are typical of what you can expect from disc ceramics - CDE Performance.
