PROMs XC18V00 - What kind of decouping capacitors should be used with this device?


What kind of decoupling capacitors should I use with the 1800 device?


Use 0.01 to 0.1 microF capacitors close to the power/ground leads of the device. 


Use a larger capacitor close to where the power enters the board. 


FPGAs recommend a capacitor for each power/ground pair which is excessive for PROMs as PROMs do not have many I/Os, nor do they switch very quickly.
