What is meant by “Ground Via” in PCB? Why is it required?

A lot of DIY video mentions about ground via. I am just very curious about its function and necessity.

It means lC and component which is connected to Ground. If a Ground plane is made as a separate layer, all these pins are to be connected. It  can boost the performance of circuitry in certain conditions.

Sometimes vias are used for connections to ground planes.

What Others Are Asking

How can I fix the PCB to the mechanical structure?

I designed a PCB with an imaging sensor that is mechanically coupled to a lens assembly using four 2-56 screws. I’m noticing that even though the screws are holding the board tightly against the mechanical structure if I flick or lightly knock the the assembly the image “moves”.  I’m hoping to get a few suggestions for ways to fix the PCB to the mechanical structure. Any suggestions for adhesives or the like? Something else?

Do you use SMT or THT for USB mini B connector?

This question is about the advisability of continuing to use a USB mini-B right angle surface mount connector in my pcb designs. On occasion we see one of these connectors peel back or delaminate off the pcb. Immediately the question is asked, why didn’t you use a through hole connector?
