Thread: .1uf between Vcc and gnd ???
face BY : David Covick email (remove spam text)


I have a product on the market with NO caps across Vcc and Gnd.
It is a PIC12C672 run with a 3.6V lithium battery.
Thousands sold and around the world and not seen any issues from leaving
caps off.
I decided to do this to save parts count/cost.  Normally I use a 0.1uF, but
in this case I left it off due to the battery being very close to the PIC
(short track).
I'm sure someone on this list will tell me that what I did was wrong, but
since it works fine I'd be happy to hear from someone at to why it is a bad
