Electronic – Vias under SSOP IC, is this a problem


I am trying to route connection on a board. However much I try there is always a via dropped below the IC. It is an SSOP package. IS this okay or is it an issue?

If by "below" you mean under the IC body, then this is OK (assuming that the package does not have a heat sink pad on the bottom surface). However, it looks like some of your traces are very, very close to the via rings.
