It is usually best to put any layer transitions close to the ICs where decoupling capacitors and stitching vias already exist, but for other layer transitions, it is important to put a stitching via or capacitor for every signal transition.

Support alternative A / B mode directly, lower extra cost (one extra decoupling capacitor is needed) and Fast / Gigabit Ethernet environments.
They also act like a switching gate and may require decoupling capacitors to be placed nearby to reduce EMI.
The instantaneous power draw is such that the decoupling capacitors for the device cannot supply the necessary current and the supply voltage sags.
This provides a blazingly fast switching planar capacitance on the board, and it reduces the requirement for many decoupling capacitors on that particular board.
In this column we consider whether it is better to mount a decoupling capacitor on the top or on the bottom of the PCB.
