Holy crap! Did you need some more current and the TPIC6B595 shop was closed? ______Rob
I wasnt sure about that, but i had assumed that if sinking, we didnt need the caps, but I wasnt sure. So are these true statements?If you are sinking only, then you dont need de-coupling caps.
Will any type of cap work for decoupling? can I use electrolytic or tantalum? I assume ceramic caps are used because they are inexpensive.
Are you using those chips as current sources or current sinks? If they're sinks you don't need so much decoupling.
So are these true statements?If you are sinking only, then you dont need de-coupling caps.
1 cap will work for many chips, if it is large enough (higher voltage?)
decoupling caps dont have to be soldered directly onto the chips pins i there are large enough traces or wires, and not too far away (an inch?)
Real engineers keep telling me I can never have too much decoupling.
