    I'm pleased that you offer a Digikey part number for people needing a lot of these. This is one of the reasons I love Sparkfun and will continue buying from you!

    When this says 0.1uF does it mean 0.1µF?

Good job! I realized that each side says something different, but this cap should have one that says 104. Sorry for any confusion!!

Old post: Works fine but I was sent a 22pf ceramic cap instead of this. I looked at the text and it clearly says, "K5M" on two of them, which is the marking from the 22pf cap and not this one. 2/5 were the 22pf and the rest were this one, the 0.1uf cap. Please explain this!
