What is the CORRECT orientation of C60 for a v2 board ?

30 May 2018, 22:56

Hello!

I am puzzled , I read that the SSS3 had a small "bug" where a capacitor C60 was soldered in the reverse order.
The review HERE claims that v2 boards have this issue fixed but from my knowledge that doesn't seem correct: the capacitor's negative lead should be facing the 75ohm resistor - assuming the trace after the 75ohm resistor is going to the video-out port.

This is how the capacitor is installed on the v2 unit (pic is from the above review, mine is also like this)

this is still reversed, right?

I have read it does not make a difference etc etc, I am just interested to verify what the correct polarity should be.
Thanks! :mrgreen:

It's in the correct orientation in that photo. The white stripe (positive terminal) pointing to the amp.

ah yes... the stripe is the +ve side in this package - I was confused with smd electrolutics... thanks for the confirmation!

It's a tantalum cap. Tantalum caps always use the stripe to indicate positive. Both smd and leaded are like that.
