Cap markings unfamiliar

This is a small (8x3 mm) yellow axial "blob" w/hard (ceramic?) shiny exterior. Markings: FC4 9116 Presume the latter is date code. What is the value? A Google turned up
nothing I could find that might identify this code. Surely tolerance markings follow the value markings...
Ideas?
Thanks,

Many ceramic multi-layer caps were made like that. I associate Kemet and AVX with blue and yellow bodies but forget which way round.
The markings sound totally unhelpful. Usually there might be something like 104 (100nF) to denote capacitance.

FC4 is most likely OEM proprietary marking. All axial ceramic caps I have come across have the value marked on them. Are you able to measure its value?

In EU we write 1.2 Ohms as 1R2, 1.2kOhms as 1k2, 0.1 Ohms as 0R1 or R1. So obviously it's 0.4femtocaps.
Sorry.

C = coulombs. It's a charged cap -- be careful, you might accidentially bleed out the 0.4 femtocoulombs! ;-)
Incidentially, 0.4fC is about 2500 electrons.

Hey with today's modern quantum dot detectors used in the lab instruments, it'll have no problem. ;-]

Leave it to a guy with a name like Zakbar to come up with that one. :-]
