Hi,

- Will there be a problem if the VCC and GROUND via from
the power pins of a chip are shared with the corresponding
vias of the decoupling capacitor placed close to those
power pins ? The chip is on the top layer and the decap is
on the bottom layer..

- What are ground loops..? Does sharing of ground vias cause
ground loops..?

Thanks,
Raman
