EEVBlog #1116 – The Capacitance Multiplier

Circuit building block time. The capacitance multiplier and how it gives almost negligible power supply ripple compared to a voltage regulator. Whiteboard theory and then some bench demonstrations and experiments. Plus a twist at the end that proves that the “Capacitance multiplier” is perhaps one of the most mis-named circuits ...

EEVblog #1085 – Bypass Capacitors Visualised!

An in-depth practical visualisation of how bypass capacitors work at both high and low frequencies. Bulk decoupling capacitors vs bypass capacitors. Capacitor placement and types are tested and the results examined. How package inductance can have a large effect. Loop area and what is means, it’s impact on EMC emissions, ...

EEVblog #941 – The Amazing Schmitt Trigger

Fundamentals Friday What is a Schmitt trigger and how does it work? What is hysteresis? And how do they fix two common problems in electronics, namely slow slew rate signals on CMOS digital chip inputs causing oscillation, and noise on comparator inputs. The issues are demonstrated first on the breadboard, ...
