NO RATINGS
You know, I've always wondered why surface mount ceramic capacitors are not marked. On more than one occasion I've had to remove a capacitor from a board just so I could do an out-of-circuit test to verify that it was the correct part.

I for one would be willing to pay double to get ceramic capacitors that are clearly marked.

Will IC's be next?

Is anyone buying the justification that the reason for removing the markings is for environmental reasons?
