I'm building a circuit that uses multiple chips. All of them require a capacitor to be connected in parallel to the VCC line (as seen in the datasheets). Since capacitors are used to reduce voltage fluctuations, and all the chips are drawing upon the same VCC, can I just use one big capacitor for all the chips? If yes, do I just add the capacitance of the small ones together use that value for the big one?
