Gaetan,
        try this calculator. It does the trace temp rise but also has a
section at the bottom for trace resistance and voltage drop at specific
currents.

Subject: [PEDA] Trace resistance


Does anybody knows a good link or freeware for DC resistive calculation in
function with the thickness, width and length of a PCB track. I already know
about "trace with calculator"
http://www.aracnet.com/cgi-usr/gpatrick/trace.pl but this is not exactly
what I'm looking for, current and temperature rises aren't the issues for my
application. It's more a question of DC equivalent resistive for a coil made
with a long PCB trace.
Thanks
GF
