I am looking at my Flex Cable interface card and I am wondering what type of capacitors these are for C1 to C7.

 

I know they are .1uf, but they look like some type of glass capacitors.  

 

Can use just a standard axial .1uf 35v or 50v capacitor or do they need to be of t his type ?

Pretty much any 104 capacitors should work fine there. The glass types are getting pretty hard to find. I have a few of them (of mixed values) that I was able to buy a while back, but I think there were only three .1uF caps in the whole lot (and they were what I wanted for a board I wanted to build with proper period components). You will also find the glass caps on a lot of TI's cartridge boards--making that a good place to harvest some good ones if you want to stay with glass caps.

I noticed 104 stamped on them.  Had no clue what it was.  I figured if I stuck with the same values and the 104 whatever that means i was safe.

A 104 is a standard number marking for a .1uF filter capacitor. Here's a useful chart that shows them all.

so a 104 is a 100nf capacitor and is converted to a .1uf then ?

 

I believe this one would work then:

Those will work perfectly. I usually buy that type in lots of a thousand or two from China for the cartridge boards I build. . .

.1uf = 100 nf.
