EEVblog #1117 – PCB Power Plane Capacitance

Are power planes in a 4 layer PCB any good as a capacitor?
Can it work as one big bypass capacitor?
A look at an discussion on PCB layer stackups, and some measurements on 4 and 8 layer PCB power planes with different prepreg thicknesses and how well they work as a capacitor.
