Put both capacitors on the VCC line as close to the radio as possible (the radio connector is good) The parts are NECESSARY NOT OPTIONAL PLACES FOR EXTRA UNUSED CAPACITORS. I
OK. I take it that you are not actually familiar with these transceivers. I'll wait for mine to turn up in the mail.
In the case of the datasheet from Nordic Semiconductor - very little. The word "bypass" occurs once and I don't think it is relevant to the end user - me. This is indeed why I asked the question in the first place.
To answer one of your question, the smaller cap needs to sit closer to the radio. T
Actually, if you look at the schematic for the nrf2401 "module", you'll see they have 5 bypass caps on the 3 Vdd pins, which is kind of interesting.
