#188602 - What cap are we talking about?
Responding to: Joseph Hebert's previous message
Joseph said:
Frankly, I've always considered capacitor values in particular suspect at best, but fortuitiously uncritical.

This heavily depends on the actual application. If you urgently need a very precise cap, then you usually take a cap which is stable versus temperature and frequency at the same time. Then, measuring its capacitance at only one, representative frequency is enough.
