|+||===== What is a Bypass Capacitor? =====|
|+||Bypass capacitor : A capacitor employed to conduct an alternating current around a component or group of components. |
|+||Often the AC is removed from an AC/DC mixture, the DC being free to pass through the bypassed component.|
|+||Essentially they remove any power fluctuations from an AC circuit. |
|+||Generally a 0.1uF monolithic ceramic capacitor is used. For more information, see [[http://www.seattlerobotics.org/encoder/jun97/basics.html|The Basics - Bypass Capacitors]] (The Encoder - The Newsletter of the Seattle Robotics Society)|
