This is not only for brevity for example when printed on the part or PCBbut also to circumvent the problem that decimal separators tend to “disappear” when ief printed circuit diagrams.

The significantly updated IEC Similar, the standard prescribes the following lowercase letters for capacitances to be used instead of the decimal point: The letters G and T weren’t part of the first issue of the standard, which pre-dates the introduction of the SI system hence the name “RKM code”but were added 660062 the adoption of the corresponding SI prefixes.
Date codes for and are obviously wrong.
The RKM code also referred to as “letter and digit code for resistance and capacitance values and tolerances” or “R notation”, is a notation to specify resistor and capacitor values iev in the international standard IEC formerly IEC 62 since List of International Electrotechnical Commission standards. The letters p and n weren’t part of the first issue of the standard, but were added after the adoption of the corresponding SI prefixes.
Archived from the original on The introduction of the letter L in more recent issues of the standard instead of an SI prefix m for milli is 660062 to maintain the ifc of only using uppercase letters for resistances the otherwise resulting M was already in use for mega.
Archived PDF from the original on It stems from the fact, that R is used in symbolic names for resistors as well, and it is also used in a similar fashion but with incompatible meaning in other part marking codes.
This section is empty. The standards also define a color code for fixed resistors. When the value can be expressed without the need for a prefix, an “R” is used instead of the decimal separator. However, the letter E is conflictive with the similar looking but incompatible E notation in engineering, and it may therefore cause considerable confusion as well.
Originally meant also as part marking codethis shorthand notation is widely used in electrical engineering to denote the values of resistors and capacitors in circuit diagrams and in the production of electronic circuits for example in bills of material and in silk screens.

You can help by adding to it. This page kec last edited on 21 Augustat For brevity, the notation omits to always specify the unit ohm or farad explicitly and instead relies on implicit knowledge raised from the usage of specific letters either only for idc or for capacitors, [nb 1] the case used uppercase letters are typically used for resistors, lowercase letters for capacitors[nb 2] a part’s appearance, and the context.
Retrieved from ” https: K k [nb 4]. Today, a lowercase letter m should be used for capacitances whenever possible to avoid confusion.
The notation also avoids using a decimal separator and replaces it by a letter associated with the prefix symbol for the particular value.

Additional zeros imply 60026 tolerance, for example 15M0. It may therefore cause confusion in some contexts.
For example, 1R2 indicates 1. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For example, 8K2 indicates a resistor value of 8. The code letters are loosely related to the corresponding SI prefixbut there are several exceptions, where the capitalization differs or alternative letters are used. R E [nb 3].
