C-Specs
C-Specs are 4-digit codes found at the end of a part number which specify things like reeling, ESR ratings or special testing. These are internal codes to KEMET and may not appear on a customer’s BOM. However, they do appear on labels and can cause confusion at receiving. Below are a number of KEMET
C-specs (Customer Specifications) which are commonly used.

Note: KEMET allows distributors and customers to use TR for specifying tape and reel or TU for ceramic chips, specifying tape/unmarked. When these abbreviations are used, the KEMET system will automatically apply the appropriate 4-digit code.
Example: C0805C103K5RACTU = C0805C103K5RAC7800 (7800 = standard tape & reel)
ESR rating example: T520D337M004ATE012 (E for ESR, 012 = 12mOhm)

Commercial Ceramic Chips

*Some Quantities can vary for further information see MFG datasheet.

Commercial Tantalum Chips

C-Spec Marked Description
N/A Standard 7" reel for T49x, T510, T520, T530, T540 Case Size A&B=2000, C, D & X =500
7280 Standard 13" reel: T49x, T5xx, Case Size A=9000, B=8000, C=3000, D=2500, X=2000
Txxx Standard 7"reels for smaller quantities use: T+ATy T100 or T1K0 for 1k
Exxx Standard For T493, T495, T496, T498, T499, T520, T521, T522, T530, T545. ESR ratings are
called out (E+ESR rating) example: E040 = ESR of 40 mOhms; E1K5 = 1500 mOhms
4394 Standard 20 piece increments on a strip of tape

*Tantalum chip (SMD) come on a 7" reel as a standard, so no reeling spec is necessary.
