  • One thing I sometimes do when faced with this problem is use several smaller caps in parallel. The nice thing about this is you get a better ESR. The down side of course is you do use more board area but you might be able to get a better height profile.

  • So I bought this device and hooked it up to my bose noise canceling headphones but the audio quality was quite poor. Has anyone had a similar experience with this?

  • So I have one of these guys and I am trying to hook it up to the RS-485 breakout board. However I am having trouble getting the RTS line to go high when I send any data. I can see the TX line from the module working but the RTS stays low. Bill Welch (comment below) mentioned pin 34 being a second RTS, however looking at that reveals that it is inverted to the need of the RS-485 board.
    Is there some way of making the standard RTS signal work or do i have to use an inverter along with pin 34?
