Thanks for the chats on this.
Curious to hear that sh101/202 used ceramics. Sounds like this is quite
normal in the industry. I would hope that today we at minimum have a
predominance of C0G types since they don't cost much more than a cent each.
I was noticed in the ssi2140 docs that "Ceramic C0G/NP0, polystyrene, some
polyester and polycarbonate types are recommended".I was surprised to not
see polypropylene in the list and also have never heard of polycarbonate
