The way of connecting decoupling capacitor when VCC and GND pins aren't close
I want to make a pcb and it host an ATmega 162 microcontroller in PDIP package. But VCC and GND pins are diagonally arranged. Then the capacitors should be very close to the pins for maximum effect.
Now there are 3 ways to connect the capacitors.
1.Place capacitors near ground and run wire to VCC,
2.Run wires to the capacitors to make sure that the distance from both pins is equal,
3.Place capacitors near VCC and run wire to ground. There's always the "none of the above" option.
Can you give me some advice in making right decision?
