Just a general question on these caps. Is there another name commonly used for silver mica? Can't find any in the Digikey cat but I see polyester and foil, metalized ployester etc. Thanks in advance

Hi Doctor ;o))
No, not that I know of, but I know that both Farnell ( http://www.farnell.com )and RS Components ( http://www.rs-components.com ) have them, if not on stock, they can deliver the next day.

Default Silver Mica Caps

The ones I found are made by Cornell Dubilier and distributed by Newark Electronics. If these are parts for the Pass a40, I just updated my list of parts and suppliers in your "Solid State DIY" thread below to include these. The changes are mostly to consolidate suppliers so I can place a minimum number of orders and receive what I need. Still haven't started building yet - I have a few other "projects" to wrap up first.

Hi doktor ,


I don't know if digikey sells small quantities of them. If you logged in EBAY and search for 'mica cap.', you should be able to locate more than you need.

BTW what values are you looking for? I had quite a stock for them.

Digikey has them here.

Mouser has a larger selection. They appear to be considerably cheaper, too.

I'm not sure doktor will have been waiting 5 years for the answer.

His last post was on 06-03-2002.

Wow, 5 years. I feel pretty stupid. I really need to look more closely before responding to some of these posts. I guess I'll blame the person who revived the thread.

Yeh, that would be me. I don't know how I dig this up. MY usual action will be looking thru the first few (probably 2-3) pages of the 'solid state' menu and see if there is any new or newly replied post that I might be interest to go thru. Sorry that I did not look at the date of the last post. But somehow, someone did the same thing as I had. Ha.....

Hi,
just to prove that the search facility is used and even works.

Well for some it may. I have never yet found what I needed, found lots of other (very) unrelated threads and wasted lots of time.

My new target should be to learn how to generate the correct searches to enter into the fields.
