Introduction   I'm having a bit of fun experimenting. With capacitor leakage. It's all a bit ad hoc and Heath Robinson- ish, and I'm probably setting a very bad example of how to go about engineering, but never mind. As long as you just read it out of interest and keep saying to yourself 'why doesn't he do it properly?' or 'that's a useless way to do things, I can think of a much better way', we'll be fine. I'm doing this with fairly minimal test equipment - just a fairly average 20 ...
Introduction   I haven't done much blogging recently but, enthused by all the activity going on at the moment, I thought it might be interesting to take a quick look at the use of capacitors for power decoupling of logic circuits (or, at least, one aspect of their use). This isn't anything very scientific, just a quick bit of practical experimenting looking at the effects in a real, but very simple, circuit using the limited test equipment that I have: an oscilloscope with a midran ...
