Friday Free Board Quiz – Filtering capacitors part 2 – the prize is MOD-MPU9150 3 axis accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer


MOD-MPU9150 is 9-axis motion tracking device with 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis magnetometer. It will connect easily to any of our boards with UEXT connector like Arduino compatible: OLIMEXINO-32U4, STM32-OLIMEXINO, PIC32-PINGUINO etc.

To participate in the Quiz is enough to Re-tweet the Twitter Quiz announcement message.

To double your chances you have to answer the Quiz question :)

This Friday we continue our Quiz with another question again about filtering capacitors:

The question is simple: Which capacitor is better to be used for filtering: 0805-100NF or 0402-100NF?

You have time to re-tweet and/or answer until Monday 26th of October.

In Monday we will post the correct answer and ask to generate random number in range then announce the winner and ship the board by post/airmail.

Good Luck!

    0402-100NF has small loop –>> less inductance
    i think,
    not sure

    0402-100nF, because of lower inductance. source: [pdf]
