Would need the logic board code/identifier and a better definition picture would help too. It's probably a Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor 10uF 6.3V X5R 20%

This is logic board Apple 820-2530-A, Intel (661-5231).

I'm added enlarged photo, there are no signatures, but 3 neighboring capacitors seem to look the same.


That is it then.. Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor 10uF 6.3V X5R 20%


This is not 10uF 6.3V X5R 20%! Received this capacitors and try mount - they 2-3 times smaller than on photo. Look like not so where the arrow is pointed, but as an adjacent one.


I have no idea what you have received, but I confirm that according to schematics the component your arrow points to is C3500, a Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor 20% 6.3V X5R 603, part of PP3V3_S3_CARDREADER power line


I agree with @arbaman on this. I show the same component as he listed. @arbaman only thing you want to do next time is to make sure that you list the package size of the components as well. This is important to the OP...
