FR4 Dielectric Breakdown
As you complete your PCB design, you have to consider dielectric breakdown. When dielectric breakdown occurs, a voltage has exceeded what the dielectric material can handle. FR4 is one of the most common insulators used on PCB because of its durability; choosing the proper thickness of your FR4 layer can help you avoid dielectric breakdown.
But in order to maintain the integrity of your PCB design, dielectric breakdown is just one of the things you have to consider. If you aren’t using a PCB design software that simplifies and speeds up every step of the design process and empowers you to make informed decisions, then you need to consider Altium Designer.
