Dear Fritzing community
I'm quite new to the PCB business (and very fond of it). Are there any recommendations on how thick the traces should if the current that will flow through them is known?
Thank you very much,
thank you for the question. This is a very important topic and of course, there is a relationship between trace thickness and current. I googled it for you and my favourite search engine lead me to this website.
I hope, it helps developing your PCB.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you very much!
Do you have any idea, how thick the traces are when produced with fritzing fab?
The traces produced in Fritzing Fab are the thicknesses that are chosen when the traces are drawn in the Fritzing Sketch.
I ment thickness as opposite to width (thickness x width = inner diameter ... relevant for current).
Sorry, I meant of course «thickness x width = cross sectional area». The thickness is requested in the calculation form on the above homepage.
we produce the PCBs with 35 µm copper. You can find the specs in the Fritzing Fab FAQ ;)
Ups, sorry then and thank you anyway!
No problem – that's what we're here for :)
Have a nice evening.
To you too! Thank you!
