Capacitors to Keep On Hand I suggest that you stock your lab with these values of capacitance for your experiments. Buy in bulk to save money. You’ll notice that I’ve gone with an approximate 1, 5, 10, 50… series of values. Again, bear in mind that you can put these values together in series and parallel for additional values. When opportunity knocks, I suggest you expand your parts cabinet to contain a 1, 2, 5, 10… series of values. A series like that would go 10pF, 22pF, 47pF, 100pF, 220pF, 470pF, etc.

Always clean and re-tin your soldering iron’s tip immediately prior to applying it to the braid. Apply the cleaned, newly tinned tip to the braid right over the pad to desolder with light force so that the heat from the tip transfers to the braid, which in turn transfers to the solder on the pad and melts it. You should see the copper-colored braid turn silver as the solder flows into it. In Figure 2-17, I have removed the soldering iron but left the braid for you to see the silver color that forms as the solder flows into the braid.

This “virtual ground” potential is then used as the circuit’s signal ground. It should be noted, however, that a virtual ground is nowhere near as solid or low impedance as a “real” ground provided by a line-powered dual power supply. The upshot of all this is that you’ll need at least a dual output power supply. A dual output power supply is a box with two independent power supplies whose output voltages can be adjusted individually. Often they include built-in voltage and current meters to display both the voltage setting and the current being drawn from the supply.
