Q.Temperature characteristics guide (6): Which temperature characteristics can be substituted for another?
Capacitors > Ceramic Capacitors > Multilayer Ceramic Chip Capacitors
Temperature characteristics that cover the same range and offer tighter tolerances are drop-in compatible. X5R is a good replacement for Y5V and Z5U because of its significantly tighter tolerances and superior DC bias performance compared to Y5V and Z5U. Because of this, TDK no longer offers MLCCs in Y5V or Z5U temperature characteristics.
X7R (-55°C - +125°C) can replace X5R (-55°C - +85°C) because the operating temperature range includes X5R’s completely.
