You're probably referring to the multiple "bypass" capacitors which limit
spiking on fast responding TTL logic. They are generally "monolithic" type in
the .1 to .01 uF range. Color varies depending on vendor and packaging spec, but
they are are often yellow-orange in color, though I've often used bright blue
ones as well. On older S100 boards (1980's vintage), these were often ceramic
disk capacitors, same value but physically quite a bit larger, again in a
variety of colors. Orange, red and green were common.
