SMT capacitors

Post by exxos »

As long as it doesn't annoy people to much.. I plan the replace the decoupling caps (leaded) with SMT ones..

Reason is mostly to declutter the topside a bit, plus the caps can go on the rear of the board, so they will be a tiny bit closer to the power pins on each chip. It may help the autorouter not having the caps on top as well.

Caps will likely be 1206, so not to tiny to solder...

The electrolytics will be replaced with 2220 sizes caps. All my hardware guides - mods - games - STOS - All my hardware mods for sale - Please help support by making a purchase.
