In this video we will have a closer look at a decoupling problem of one of my recent LED circuits. That means I will explain how a decoupling capacitor can save my circuit from harmful oscillations. Along the way I will talk about three popular capacitor types, the film capacitor, the ceramic capacitor and the electrolytic capacitor and explain which one is best suited for which application and why. Let’s get started!
