Polyester caps generally go down to about .0001f (100pf). From there and up, you should have no problem finding them (up to a maximum of about 10f, unless you want to look at large speaker crossover-type poly caps which can be had up to values of about 200f).

Default Thanks echo wars

Thanks very much echowars.

I was in confusion about the convertions pf to uf and the range of availablility especially range of availablity.

I found a an url where all convertions are avialable. http://www.unitconversion.org/unit_c...pacitance.html

In india, I don't think we can get 200 uf poly caps ,any way I am looking for pf's upto 1000pf.

Can u clarify another point ?, when i asked for 0.1uf poly cap the store keeper gave me a polyster cap rating as 104k,104j what is this convertion ? any idea ?.

104 = 10+ 4 zeroes, ie 100000 or 100,000

Units are pF so 100,000pF = 100nF = 0.1uF, which is what you asked for

suffix k and j are tolerence, 10% and 5%

Do you think you could use mica caps instead of polyester? Mica is more common in the picofarad region than is polyester.
