Capacitor Values of Tegra X1

Hello Everyone,

for fun and to learn a bit more about micro soldering, I bought a broken Nintendo Switch Lite on eBay.

After dissembling it, I noticed that two capacitors on the Tegra X1 CPU Chip, are broken.

the caps I am talking about are visible in this screenshot circled in red

here is a picture which shows the position in total

based on the description on eBay the person tried to install an SX Lite Mod and after the console fell down, it did not work anymore, so they removed the SX Lite again.

From what I can see, the console overall looks okay, the battery voltage is a bit low, but I assume because of the faulty CPU, Power Management is not working at all, so I wanted to first replace the two broken capacitors to check if that might fixes it.

Could anyone tell me what the values of these capacitors are, so I can order replacements?

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure about the capacitors value, but after some discussions on various forums, two options came up. You can go with:

#1 ‎C0603X5R1A104K030BC‎

TDK Corporation

CER CAP 0.1UF 10V X5R 0201


#2 02016D105MAT2A‎

AVX Corporation

CER CAP 1UF 6.3V X5R 0201

Now, capacitors are used to build voltage potential, so keep that in mind. Also, the capacitance between the two is significant. I'm inclined to go with #2 but I'm not sure yet. Have been asking this for weeks, got no "definitive" answer just yet.

It seems like #2 is indeed the winner, according to this website (in Russian, use Google Translate), comment #21811: in other words, 1uF 6.3V.

So there you have it.

It could also be possible that those two capacitors are completely fine. They just happen to be on a line which is shorted. Take them off and measure their capacitance. If the capacitance is okay there's no need to replace them. There's a reason why nobody fixes dead cpu switches

@pomikoli Speaking of, could you point me to the right direction? I need to know the details about this specific capacitor, which came off after a desoldering job:

That'd be very very helpful.

Thanks in advance.

There are no schematics available for Nintendo Switch Lite. The chances are it's the same one as the one above it. It's also very possible you don't even need the capacitor. Take your multimeter and test the two pads, if one is ground you don't need it
