PCB Simulation vs. Real Board – DC Currents and Voltage drop

Comparing results from the real boards with results from a simulation. https://youtu.be/LQ20GBonRmA Links: - The Same Simple Board but Different Layouts: https://youtu.be/56FvQX63Ea0 - How Hot The PCB Tracks Can Get? https://youtu.be/zbWwdEyCOUE - Altium files of the boards: https://github.com/FEDEVEL/youtube-boards-for-simple-simulation - Thermal camera used in the video: https://youtu.be/_bp7bRtX_hI - My Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/robertferanec

The Same Board but Different Layouts – See the Difference (DC Currents & Voltage Drop)

Eight simulations to explore DC Currents and Voltage Drop on the same boards, but with different placement and different layout. https://youtu.be/56FvQX63Ea0 Links: - Advanced Design System Software: https://www.keysight.com/en/pd-2998595/pathwave-advanced-design-system-ads-2020?cc=US&lc=eng - Files used for this simulations: https://github.com/FEDEVEL/youtube-simple-simulations

Using VIA in PAD? What you need to know – Guidelines, dimensions and more …

What is the minimum size of VIA and VIA-in-PAD which I can use in my board? What kind of VIA in PAD I should choose? How much is it going to cost? Everything important about the limits and recommendations of VIAs and VIAs in PAD. Thank you very much to Mike and Exception PCB. Links: … Continue reading Using VIA in PAD?
