Sarah Santangelli takes us through the importance of Trace Widths and what they mean for your PCB design. What is Trace Width? Trace width is an important design factor in PCB design. PCB trace could be analog, digital or power, from one junction to another. The junction can be the pin of a component, a branch off of a larger trace or plane, or an empty pad or test-point intended for probing. Trace widths are often measured in mils, or thousands of an inch. A standard trace width for an ordinary signal (no special requirements) may be in the 7-12 mil range and be as long as a few inches, but ..read more

New Functionality in eCADSTAR 2021 – Creepage Checks
Quadra Blog | PCB
by Santangeli Sarah
3y ago
The creepage check within eCADSTAR’s PCB editor is a powerful tool and is so much more than a basic clearance check.  The voltage difference can also be changed based on requirements for a voltage difference range.  The flexibility and sophistication is down to the user control.     Creepage Check in Action In this design I have maximized the input voltage to 600V at the power connector of our demo PCB Design, The first thing we need to do is define the voltage of the signals in the constraints browser. This is used in combination with the design rules to create the appro ..read more

Quadra Solutions’ guide to PCB track length matching in high-speed design
Quadra Blog | PCB
by Santangeli Sarah
3y ago
To maximise the performance of a circuit design, the implementation of track length matching is key. In any circuit design, an electronic signal takes a certain amount of time to travel along the conductor to reach its end destination. It is crucial to identify the sections of a printed circuit board (PCB) design that requires length matching to guarantee that the signals arrive with accurate timing.   Track length matching is normally thought of as in pairs, but it also applies to buses with single-ended signals and differentially-driven buses. As CPU peripherals and other digital syste ..read more

PCB layout design is not rocket science, but it does take time to do right. By taking the time to review your designs before you create your layouts, you can resolve issues early enough to lower costs and production time. PCB Library Management is a critical part of this. What is PCB Library Management? Data preparation and library management are time-consuming activities. They are however a crucial part of the process and if not done correctly can severely impair the success of the project. From the inclusion of library parts to the collation of datasheets for each item, the importance of ap ..read more

How Rapid PCB prototyping is Revolutionising PCB Manufacturing In a competitive world of electronics manufacturing, the importance of speed cannot be overstated! The quicker a company can move from concept to product stage, the more likelihood of its a success. So what is what Rapid PCB prototyping? Rapid PCB Prototyping is a set of methods to create a prototype of your product very quickly. This can then be used to validate your final product. An additive manufacturing approach is required, as opposed to a subtractive which can involve substantial rework. 3D printing technology allows designe ..read more
