I'm trying to figure out if one SMD capacitor is the same as a through hole decoupling capacitor. With the through hole capacitor the positive current is on one side of the capacitor and the negative current is on the other. And each pin distributes the current to the rest of the circut. It looks as if the capacitor is crossing the connections but everything works as it should. I want to apply the same set up in SMD format.
But I am unsure if I would use one Capacitor with both currents going through it on oposite sides or should I have two SMD capacitors one for positive current and the other for negative?
