Changing Low Current Sensor Breakout ACS712 bandwidth

Post by Joe Sz » Wed May 11, 2016 4:32 pm

I'd like to get a Low Current Sensor Breakout ACS712 but I'd like to verify I can change the bandwidth from 34 Hz to something closer to 100Hz. If I change C1 from 100 pF to 33 pF I think I'll get a bandwidth of 103 Hz.
Questions:
1. Did I get the C1 replacement value correct?
2. What size is C1? 0805? 0603?
3. What voltage?
4. What tolerance?

Thanks,
Joe
P.S. I wish you folks made a version that had pads for other C1s and and jumpers (rather than solder pads) for easily selecting the bandwidth.
