See this image which gives four options to place decoupling capacitors: (from http://www.learnemc.com/tutorials/Decoupling/decoupling01.html) I would say option (d) isn't good - I would recommend ...
I am really confused with all of the ground bounce, decoupling, bypassing, filtering, resonance and ESR&ESL stuff. What I currently understand is: Ground bounce occurs when the (capacitive ...
This is my first PCB, so please forgive some of my ignorance! I'd like to mount two accelerometers (ADXL193: +/- 250g), orthogonally, on the same PCB, and have a question about noise. The current ...
We have designed quite a few FPGA-based boards, and so far, we have used a lot of bypass capacitors. Our rule of thumb was, "as many as we can". In our next design, we would like to reduce the part ...
I know it's good practice to use bypass capacitors near the power pins of your ICs, but I'm now moving on from the breadboarding stage to the PCB-design stage, and I'd like to know if there are any ...
