Question regarding how missing capacitors will affect performance (Cyton V3)
Okay, so... I've had my Cyton V3 board for nearly eight years now (since 2015). I only used it during my undergrad and master thesis projects, and I had only begun tinkering with it again lately after getting into academics again.
I've been trying to handle it carefully, but even it seems to have reached the limit now. Recently, I noticed that a few of the capacitors had gone missing (i.e. the capacitors in C11, C26, and C21) -- likely they came off while I was using it. What concerned me is.... how much will it affect the signal quality as a whole? Is it still possible for me to use it even with the few capacitors gone missing?
Unfortunately, I can't immediately replace the board with the new one for now, and I'm not sure how accessible the missing components are in my country for me to have the board fixed. So I'd like to hear your thoughts about the matter.
