This guy is a calibration standard.

Re: Mr. Bypass Capacitor
So I tried "shunt resistor" and at the very bottom is someone who reminds me of George C. Scott.

Bypass Caps
They're using capacitors during bypass surgery???  Wow.  Can someone share the link?

Re: Mr. Bypass Capacitor
Gee...from the title, I thought was going to be an announcement for a new award...you know, for "the most creative use of a bypass capacitor in an analog circuit" or some such. I was going to nominate Paul Brokaw, who wrote

"An IC Amplifier User's Guide to Decoupling, Grounding,
and Making Things Go Right for a Change"

But since it is not, I nominate any one of Jim William's hand-drawn ways to palce a bypass cap. There are several on the referenced page.

Re: Mr. Bypass Capacitor
Hi Brad--now that is an interesting psychological experiment.  When I scrolled through images from Martin's link, the one that caught my eye was the Saint Bernard and friend.  I wondered why it would show up under bypass capacitor, then noticed it was an image from this site.

Maybe that SEO stuff actually works!

Re: Mr. Bypass Capacitor
Well OK, but I don't need an EMC consultant. But anything that refers back to me, I'm in favor of.

Re: Mr. Bypass Capacitor
"High frequency measurements" will get you Doug Smith, and EMC consultant.

And besides those handsome devils, there also a nice picture of Miss Tamara Schmitz and her favorite pooch (because she wrote some nice articles on bypass caps). And best of all, there are some dandy tube circuits shown.

Mr. Bypass Capacitor
We've all used bypass (decoupling) caps on our circuit boards to reduce EMI and improve signal integrity. Today, I was writing one such blog for DesignCon Community and I was looking for a figure to include. So, I Googled "Bypass capacitor. Follow this link and scroll down to find the two candidates for Mr. Bypass Capacitor.

As an engineer, eventually you will have to insert an equation into your written work or presentation. This can be a struggle as equation editors are not always the friendliest. However, there is good news. The equation editor in Word has improved immensely (I am using version 2010 here). In this blog we look at how to insert an equation into a Word document. As a bonus, there is information on how to insert an equation into a web page with an html code generator website.
Wait a minute. Let’s see if I understand this. (Here I’m channeling you, the puzzled reader, after you’ve grabbed me in the coffee break of a Filter Wizard lecture morning). The frequency of the nth harmonic of a sinusoid is n times that of the fundamental. The nth harmonic distortion is defined as the ratio of the amplitude of the nth harmonic to the amplitude of the fundamental. So the 1st harmonic distortion is… the ratio of the amplitude of the fundamental to the amplitude of the fundamental and that’s… unity. I. Do. Not. Understand.
Single-ended signals are very common, but increasingly signal paths are being converted to differential signals as part of the signal chain. The benefits of differential signaling are particularly appealing with low supply voltage systems and for driving analog-to-digital converters (ADCs).
If you spend any time at all looking at alternative energy sources such as wind power and solar energy, you'll quickly discover one inconvenient truth: alternative energy production is both highly unpredictable and uncorrelated to energy demand.
When Radio Shack announced that they were closing stores, unfortunately the one in Cupertino (De Anza Blvd.) was one of them.
