I am building a 1200Xl from scratch. On the motherboard there are what appear to be decoupling capacitors that are located between pin 8 and pin 16 on the memory chip. C16 - C23
I am wanting to install gold plated machine pin sockets that come with a decoupling capacitor installed in the frame of the socket.
The Atari schematic calls out 0.1uF on the motherboard.
The Capactor in the frame is also 0.1uF
That would give 0.2uF per memory chip if I installed the caps in the board.
Do I just replace the caps on the MB with wire, omit them entirely or leave the caps in the motherboard?
