Hi,

A question on bypass caps. How do I place bypass caps ? Do i connect a fat short trace from the pad of surface mount cap to the supply pin of the IC and then punch a via to the power plane near this pin ? Or can i place the cap physically near the supply pin and just punch a via into the power plane ? Which approach is better ?

Thanks
Kai Siang
