Bypass caps, which value to use and do they really get rid of all the noise?
This video really visualizes what happens.

  Very nice illustration of why we often need to treat capacitors as individuals. When we're only aiming to filter out 60hz, we can pretty much figure that several smaller caps add up to one big bulk value, but as the frequency increases, it rapidly becomes more complex.
  I remember, at my first R&D lab job, being puzzled as to why the design guys were putting multiple bypass caps, of different values, side-by-side on the same pin of a chip, when one larger cap of the same equivalent value should accomplish the same thing.
  Looking further into it was an eye opener. The circuits most often included switch-mode converters and boost/buck regulators, with all their associated broadband high frequency noise; bypass caps in that application need to be viewed as individuals rather than as parts of the whole bulk capacitance.
  Cool stuff.

Interesting video but after watching this guy I needed 3 nerve pills!
He said "OK" 33 times...most were at the end of a sentence.
Cops don't say 'OK' that many times....
Ok??
