 +===== What is a Bypass Capacitor? =====
 +  Bypass capacitor : A capacitor employed to conduct an alternating current around a component or group of components. ​
 +  Often the AC is removed from an AC/DC mixture, the DC being free to pass through the bypassed component.
 +Essentially they remove any power fluctuations from an AC circuit.  ​
 +Generally a 0.1uF monolithic ceramic capacitor is used.  For more information,​ see [[http://​​encoder/​jun97/​basics.html|The Basics - Bypass Capacitors]] (The Encoder - The Newsletter of the Seattle Robotics Society)
