I have radial capacitors with markings 235 RCN on one side and 333 C5K on the other side. How do I interpret these?

Front side:

  • \$\begingroup\$ You have a part intended to be used in a Republic of Cinnabar Navy starship. 235 is the RCN purchase order number used when that batch was ordered. \$\endgroup\$

333 = 33*10^3 pF = 33 nF

235 RCN is MFG date code and factory code for traceability

e.g. 23rd week of 2015

RCN could mean any location, unique for each OEM.

  • \$\begingroup\$ The capacitor has both markings, one on each side. It cannot have two different values. \$\endgroup\$

It is a AVX capacitor: 333 - 33nF, C5K - X7R 50V +/-10%
