On datasheets I've seen recommended isolation/filtering networks that look
like this:
(values chosen at random)

RAW_VCC -----------BEAD-------------- VCC'
         |      |          |     |
         |      |          |     |
        22uF  0.1uF      0.1uF  22uF
         |      |          |     |
         |      |          |     |
RAW_GND -----------BEAD-------------- GND'


versus:


RAW_VCC -----------BEAD-------------- VCC'
         |      |          |     |
         |      |          |     |
        22uF  0.1uF      0.1uF  22uF
         |      |          |     |
         |      |          |     |
RAW_GND ----------------------------- GND'


Is there any merit to the first approach, say, for a clock, or a device with
a PLL, or a sensitive analog sub-section?  Both in terms of circuit
operation and EMI/RFI concerns.

I've also seen a couple where the beads are replaced with low or 0 ohm
resistors.


Thanks,
