Should Any-Angle Routing Be Used for Your Printed Circuit Board?

When you are in the process of designing your circuits you want to be able to incorporate all of the components you need on your printed circuit board. In order to accomplish this, it is important to have the proper spacing of components on your board so you can maximize the use of the space without sacrificing quality. While routing wires at 90-degree angles can help keep lines clean on your PCB, any-angle routing may allow you to free up valuable space in the end.  This type of routing bends wires around your components, allowing you to add more wires in tight spaces without violating design rules checking. Any-angle routing can be beneficial when working with irregular components or a project design where overall shape is key. It can shorten the distances between a component and other contacts while reducing the area used.

Designing Your Printed Circuit Board

To achieve the goals you have set for your printed circuit board it is necessary to test how different designs will work with your application. By using the free PCB Artist layout software from Advanced Circuits you will be able to design your circuit board with the industry’s largest component parts library. This will allow you to complete your design with everything you need included so that you can quickly and easily place orders to have your PCBs manufactured. If you are just getting started, you can consult the “5 Easy Steps on How to Use PCB Artist” or contact a PCB expert to get your questions answered.
