Highlights design methodology of Heavy Copper Design, Heavy Voltage Design and Metal Core design on PCB used for specialized application in industry. This design technique is a part of intensive research done by some PCB Industry Veterans, which is not patented yet, but is used when required.
The topics Covered under this course are:
A heavy copper circuit is manufactured with copper weights between 4-oz/ft2 to 20-oz/ft2. Copper weights above 20-oz/ft2 and up to 200-oz/ft2 are also possible and are referred to as extreme copper. The construction of a heavy copper circuit endows a board with benefits such as:
The ability to withstand high-level vibrations, such as those encountered on aircraft and space shuttles, makes heavy copper PCB technology an important advancement in field of PCB designing, and offers scope for career growth.
For circuits expected to work in particle colliders, high altitude planes and outer space, the material specifications used to manufacture the PCB are different from those used for the conventional PCBs. At such high voltages, strong electric fields, arc overs, and corona can cause significant damage to the material and its insulating properties, and blow up the circuit. Considering these possibilities, design high voltage PCBs and ensuring they give a reliable performance requires certain finesse in designing such PCBs and a sound knowledge of different manufacturing materials.
Metal Core PCBs dissipate heat and provide a much lower thermal resistance, in comparison to conventional PCBs, making them suitable for high power LED applications. Knowledge of the designing and fabrication of such PCBs is a feather in the cap for PCB designers.
