The connections on a PCB should be identical to its corresponding circuit diagram, but while the circuit diagram is arranged to be readable, the PCB layout is arranged to be functional, so there is rarely any visible correlation.

I have some SMD components,but do you know the best way to connect them to ground plane?How about ground plane on both top and bottom with many vias connecting the two?

I use solid contiguous to connect to ground plane secondly.And how many ground plane I will use is depends on cost.Splits in ground planes can explain why top and bottom outer layer ground planes are a waste.


As far as I am concerned,the ground plane should be as solid as possible,thus,I recommend to put the GND plane at the bottom or in an inner layer.
