Imperial code VS metric code SMD components sizes 
- what is the difference between the SMD sizes?

What is the SMD size code difference between 0201 component imperial code vs metric code

It can cause some confusion, but it's actually very simple, as the number code on the component is the component size. This is the case both with Imperial or metric code:

  • Imperial code is in inches
    Example: 0201 imperial component. 
    This means that the component is 0,02 x 0,01 inches.

  • Metric code is in millimeter 
    Example; 0201 metric component.
    This means that the component is 0,2 x 0,1 mm in size.

    Component size compare:  008004" imperial = 0201 metric code
