Circuit Board Layers
PCB designers frequently refer to circuit board layers. In short, circuit boards are double or single-sided and covered with copper on one or both sides. And more copper means more components can be connected to the board, allowing you to design a more complex device.
Today’s modern electronics and smart devices require anywhere from 4 to more than 30 layers, so taking the time to design a well-planned layer stack is crucial. For successful design, you need to rely on modern PCB tools and design software to get things right. Altium Designer 18 has everything you’re looking for.
