I am making my own "PIC board" for my robotics projects. I am trying to save as much space as possible on the board with out causing any serious problems, and now I just have one simple question. Would having the crystal placed under the MCU cause too much electrical noise that would interfere, or should I place it somewhere else?
I remembe seeing a recommendation just recently about running +5v and gnd directly under the PIC lengthways to help remove noise, maybe this could also be a consideration for you.
