FR-4 is composite material composed of woven fiberglass cloth with an epoxy resin binder. It is well known for being flame resistant (self-extinguishing). FR-4 can be used for a wide variety of electrical and mechanical applications because it has great insulating qualities in both humid and dry conditions.
PCB’s are used to mechanically support and electrically connect electronic components using conductive pathways. Altium Designer is the perfect software to combine with FR-4 material. Electronic products seem to become smaller and smaller everyday. What matters most is that your electronic items offer superior performance for the duration of its expected lifespan.
Altium can assist you when using FR-4 and designing PCB’s such as:
Single sided board: Conductors on one side
Double sided board: Copper traces on both sides
Silk screen layers: When visible information is needed on a PCB
Multi-layered board: Offer much denser routing topologies
