What the heck does that capacitor part number mean?

Garrett Electronics can help you decipher electronic component part numbers such as AVX surface mount MLC capacitors.

Manufacturer’s part numbers are often lengthy and confusing.  What do all those letters and numbers signify?  To determine if the manufacturer makes the capacitor value you need with the specifications you require and in the size you want is often like searching for a needle in a haystack.  Garrett Electronics’ knowledgeable sales team can help you understand manufacturer’s part numbers to simplify and expedite your purchasing projects.

Following is my second blog post regarding manufacturer’s part numbers to help you find the surface mount, multilayer ceramic capacitors you need.  You may also call and speak with me or one of Garrett Electronics’ knowledgeable sales team, email sales@garrettelec.com, or visit our website at http://www.garrettelec.com

What the heck does that resistor part number mean?

Garrett Electronics can help you decipher electronic component part numbers such as KOA resistors


Manufacturer’s part numbers are often lengthy and confusing.  What do all those letters and numbers signify?  To determine if the manufacturer makes the resistor value you need with the specifications you require and in the size you want is often like searching for a needle in a haystack.  Garrett Electronics’ knowledgeable sales team can help you understand manufacturer’s part numbers to simplify and expedite your purchasing projects.

Over the next few months I will post information about the part numbers we stock to help you find the resistors, capacitors, inductor and semiconductors you need.  You may also call and speak with me or one of Garrett Electronics’ knowledgeable sales team at 800 767 0081, email sales@garrettelec.com, or visit our website at http://www.garrettelec.com

One of our most popular products from KOA Speer Electronics is the surface mount, precision, thick film chip resistor, Series RK73H.  Following is information about how to interpret KOA’s part number for this series:

Part Number Determination

Example:  RK73H2ATTD1003F

Passing of Donald L. Garrett, Owner of Garrett Electronics Corp.


The End of an Era

It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the passing of Donald L. Garrett on June 11th 2013. In 1973 International Electronics Unlimited was formed by Don Garrett and 2 partners. With Don's leadership and entrepreneurial spirit the business flourished, and within 10 years he became the sole owner of Garrett Electronics.



The business has gone through many phases over the past 40 years, but the integrity and ingenuity of Don Garrett has always been at the heart of Garrett Electronics Corp. Over the past 20 years he established a standard for quality and innovation in his creation of engineering lab kits, still unmatched in the industry. He worked tirelessly over the years to improve on the design, labeling and packaging of kits. Garrett Electronics was the first, and is still the only company offering to splice on leaders and tails, to make the reels truly production ready, and make parts available to ship the same day. His brother Wayne Garrett assisted in the development of the technique and work station to splice and add the leaders and tails. Don reigned as President of the company for 38 years with his daughter Donna joining him in 2000. While he continued as owner, Donna took over as President in 2010. Don continued to offer his recommendations right up to the weeks before he passed.

In 2006 Don created Gifts Gone Gourmet and Garrett's Emporium. Throughout his life he had a passion for fine foods and wines. This venture was a joy to him, and an opportunity to select his favorite foods and wines, and share them.

He will be fondly remembered by his many loyal employees, some who have been with the company for over 15 years, and by his daughters Donna and Lynne, who have carried on in the management of the business, and have done their utmost to retain the level of integrity in their business relationships, which Garrett Electronics customers have come to expect.
