Capacitor Kit Identification Guide
You never know when you’ll need a capacitor. Sometimes you need a little more power supply decoupling, an output coupling cap, or careful tuning of a filter circuit – all applications where capacitors are critical. The SparkFun Capacitor Kit contains a wide range of capacitor values, so you will always have them on hand when you need them.
This tutorial will help you identify the contents of your kit, and show you a couple tricks to expand the range of values even further.
- If you want more general information about capacitors, you can start with our Capacitor Tutorial.
- Capacitor values are expressed using metric prefixes
- The electrolytic capacitors in this kit are polarized.
