To reduce PCB fabrication cost and improve reliability, TI recommends using a 4-mil via at the center pad connected to the ground trace or plane on the bottom layer.
A power-supply bypass capacitor of 100 nF is recommended when supply output impedance is high, supply traces are long, or when excessive noise is expected on the supply lines. Bypass capacitors are also recommended when the comparator output drives a long trace or is required to drive a capacitive load. Due to the fast rising and falling edge rates and high-output sink and source capability of the TLV7011 and TLV7021 output stages, higher than normal quiescent current can be drawn from the power supply. Under this circumstance, the system would benefit from a bypass capacitor across the supply pins.
