Using Capacitors in Parallel: Dangerous?

For many applications, especially in digital designs, you can see decoupling networks composed of several different (big and small) capacitors in parallel. But, sometimes this technique can be dangerous.

To Avoid Problems, Work as Slow as Possible

You can minimize your EMI/EMC and SI/PI problems by working as slow as possible. This is very well known advice from many experts, books, and seminars: you can minimize or solve electromagnetic interference (emissions/susceptibility) and signal or power integrity problems working as slow as possible.
