Word forms: (regular plural) bypass capacitors
( Electrical engineering : Electronics components )
The bypass capacitor is used to bypass the power supply or other high-impedance component of a circuit.
The bypass capacitor presents a high impedance to the rectified AC input which results in the AC current
being distributed symmetrically on the rising and falling edges of the rectified AC
A bypass capacitor is a capacitor that is placed between a DC signal and ground to remove any alternating
current component of the signal by creating an alternating current short circuit to
