Help identifying cap type
1 Attachment(s)
Hi. I want to identify this cap, see picture. It is a 1500pF, 100V value, smd type but it has small metal end caps on it. It is not polarized, so I guest it is not tantalum. It seems to be use as frequency compensation in a regulator circuit. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

My seat-of-the-pants guess is some type of multilayer ceramic (MLCC) made from COG or NPO dielectric material - probably 5% (or tighter) capacitance tolerance.
