    I have a capacitor which looks like a yellow plastic axial but is
    tapered on the +positive side and says AVX +9323 I think what follows
    is 20uf(not sure) +20V but if someone can identify what type of
    capacitor this is? I emailed AVX, like 6yrs ago and still haven't
    heard from them. I know these are not available anymore they were used
    around '92 -'93, but if I can find a suitable replacement, that would
    suit me just fine.

    Could be Tantalum TAR series.

    Viatrack Printed Circuit Designs (among other things)

    void _-void-_ in the obvious place

    Yes, thats exactly what it is. So, then the + 9323 must be the
    production date?
    or is that an actual model number, I'd like to find the specs for it.
    I'm not sure if its 20uf the print is small it could also be 20uk what
    value would that be?

    thanks for your help

    I'm replying to my own reply, I figured it out, 20u means 20uf and
    the K means with 10% tolerance
    Vishay and Kemet also carry them

    So why were you asking if you already knew ?
    Week 23 of 1993.
    K is a tolerance letter. It means +/- 10%. The value is 20uF and the voltage
    rating 20V.

  7. I knew someone would ask that. He was told what they were, went checking,
    found that what he was told was right, and said so. He didn't know before.

    Exactly right. I did not know before, I googled and found the answers
    after you told me
    then came back and posted my findings

    thanks again
