What is it with nF that engineers don't like? I purchased some various smd capacitors from digikey and they really like pF, going up to 10000pF, then switch to .1uF. I had to think for a second with a microchip I'm playing with, as they have a .1uF capacitor on a VDDIO pin, then call for a 100nF on a VREG pin. What am I missing?
In the old days there was no nano, pico, atto, femto, giga, tera, peta, exa.There was only milli, micro, kilo, mega.[\quote]I would say there was no NEED for any of those values at that time.
