I was inspecting my work with my first PCB in KiCAD.
I was looking at the 3d model, and I was checking out the three decoupling capacitors I have placed.
I noticed that they do not actually connect with an IC (no trace.)
Of course, I made sure I routed all the ratsnest properly - and there are zero unrouted.
These capacitors, like I said are decoupling capacitors.
This means one pin is connected to Vdd and one to GND of the IC.
The Vdd of all the ICs is the front copper plane (5V) and the GND of all the ICs is the back copper plane.
My capacitors connect to the front copper plane and the back copper plane and that's it. No connection to ICs.
But, since the ICs connect to these planes, in order to get their power and GND connections, the ratsnest check is satisfied, and that ratsnest is cleared.
But I see no actual connection of an IC to one particular decoupling capacitor!
Isn't this like now there are three 100nF capacitors in parallel between the Vdd and GND?
So isn't it like one 300nF capacitor that between the two planes, that all the three ICs share?
Have I done something wrong?
I also post picturess of the schematic as an example and the actual PCB.
