PCB Trace Width
Orchestrating all of the activities and tasks for product design can be a daunting effort. Unfortunately, many designers continue to use the default PCB trace width with complex electrical designs. Altium is here to help, by incorporating all the tools engineers and PCB designers need into a single, stress-free user interface. Altium Designer dramatically increases design successes, including trace width, while reducing overall design times.
Altium Designer is known for excellence in native 3D PCB Computer Aided Design from concept to design, 3D modeling, and output generation for final manufacture. Altium Designer provides all the best tools for determining PCB trace width for your design.
Whether you use a custom or default width, consider the factors when determining trace width:
What is the thickness of the copper layer
Is the track on the top or bottom layer
Is it on an inner layer where heat can’t escape as easily
How long is the track
At what altitude is the PCB being used
