English term or phrase: bypass capacitor
Definition from
A capacitor employed to conduct an alternating current around a component or group of components. Often the AC is removed from an AC/DC mixture, the DC being free to pass through the bypassed component.

Example sentence(s):
  • Digital devices are not the only chips that require bypass capacitors. Analog circuits also benefit from including bypass capacitors but in another way. Although bypass capacitors in digital systems control fast rising- and falling-time glitches from the device, bypass capacitors in analog systems help reduce power-supply noise at the analog device. Reed Business Information
  • The first line of defense against unwanted perturbations on the power supply is the bypass capacitor. A bypass capacitor eliminates voltage droops on the power supply by storing electric charge to be released when a voltage spike occurs. It also provides this service at a wide range of frequencies by creating a low-impedance path to ground for the power supply. Intersil Americas Inc.
  • So when we put several of these bypass capacitors (each with different L and C values) in parallel, the negative and positive pieces of imaginary part of the admittance will cancel at certain frequencies. TechInsights

Condensador de pas

Definition from own experience or research:
Condensador utilitzat per proporcionar un camí de baixa reactància als senyals dins d'un marge determinat de freqüències.
Un exemple és el condensador que es connecta en paral·lel amb la resistència en un circuit de polarització de càtode per proporcionar un camí de baixa reactància als components de freqüència dels senyals de corrent del càtode.

Example sentence(s):
  • Pel condensador de pas de RF C4, considerarem una impedància de sortida de 50, ja que una antena presenta aquesta impedància. - Wordpress  
  • Les aplicacions dels condensadors són molt diverses; per exemple, emmagatzematge d’energia, flaix fotogràfic, electrònica de potència, eliminació de components de tensió contínua (condensadors de pas). - Google Books
