Something tells me trial and error play a part here, but I want to be sure. How can I tell if I should use a .1uf or 47uf or whatever capacitor. I know that I should know this, but alas, I don't.
Also, most engineers use polarized electrolytic capacitors for bypass applications. Why not use tantalum or an unpolarized disk capacitor? In any case, why use one type over the other?
Also, In the course of doing research for the project I'm building, I ran across some rather old information regarding solderless breadboards. The author of the text mentioned that breadboards should not be used in applications where frequencies approach or exceed 8MHz due to ringing. That's a problem for me because the project I'm doing, a MC68000-based robot controller, is going to be running at or above 8MHz. If I cannot use a solderless breadboard, what can I use or is this information outdated?
