Unformatted text preview: such loads. 1. Calculate the time constant associated with each capacitor. 2. Why is it more beneficial to place two capacitors of different orders of magnitude rather than one equivalent capacitor (in this case 10.1 G± )? Think about the different kinds of power supply variations that can happen. 3. Given the parasitic model of a PCB trace below, explain why it is more beneficial to place the capacitors as close to the resistive load as possible. (Insert the model below in the circuit above and think about its effects on fast transients in VCC)....
