I have a RPi zero w that is missing a SMT component. RPI zero w with missing component

Does anyone knows what component is it and knows it specifications so I can try to solder it again?

  • a schematic diagram is available on the web, pleasr use it

    @jsotola: It's a partial schematic. That means it's incomplete.

It's a capacitor. I can't easily find the precise value on line. FWIW, an in-circuit test (probably inaccurate) shows ~80ufd for that part. The part also appears to be (physically) exactly the same as the capacitor just to its right in your picture.

  • 82u (the closest standard value) is a huge capacitance value.

  • It's an 0805 package and you can easily get them up to 100ufd at 6.3 volts. The value may be 47ufd in parallel with the adjacent one- I'm not sure.

    You may be right - I looked at mine, but saw no markings at all. If it's in that range (~80uF), then it's likely used for energy storage - not for a timer or a filter. And if that's the case, a wide range of values would work.
