Little help with ceramic cap ID?
I couldn't identify these from capacitor codes listed online.
I'm guessing that they are both .1uf but would like to be fairly certain.


Click on the thumbnail for a bigger shot. Still not great but my camera really needs updating.

The left one is labeled..

0.1 N
100 C

The right one is labeled..

Y 5 U
. 1 Z

I realize that Y5U is simply an accuracy/temperature range
and NPC probably means nothing.

Thanks for any help!

Not 100% sure but almost,I think NP,Y5U and others like NPO,Y5P,Z5V,Y5V......refer to the dielectric of the capacitors.Yes they both seem to be .1uf,different dielectric and voltage.
