What do you think about the "common" practice to place bypass capacitors
on the solder side of the board right under the IC located on the
component side and use vias to connect to VCC and gnd the capacitor. I
certainly don't recommend to do that but I have seen it so many times I
wonder if in some cases it is justified.
Any comments
