For the life of me, I can't find the proper way to decouple a 7805 5V regulator. I ahve seen solutions with both 2 and three resistors capacitors, in all sorts of combos.

Additional Details:

Expexted Input: 9V - 12V
Expected Current: ~500mA

Resistors?

I've used 2 10uF electrolytic caps - one between vin and gnd, one between vout and gnd. Works sufficiently well for a breadboard-duino setup.

yes you use capacitors to decouple

I usually toss a 0.1uf and a 10uf on input and a 0.1 on output (with the other ends connected to ground)

capacitors have the ability to block DC voltages from passing through but let ac frequencies shunt to ground

I do the same as Osgeld.

Oops... I totally said capacitors... LOL!

I guess majority rules... I'll try out Osgled's idea...

put the 0.1 as close as possible to the output pin, I usually solder it directly on to the centre and right hand pins of the device. ( ground and output )

Look in the data sheet, there are many manufactures of this regulator and each one requires a different minimum capacitor value to decouple it properly.

phht yea if you want to be right about it  :D
