[PEDA] Microstrip Corners (or optimal miters)

Hello, The most common for me right now is 0805, but that will be quickly changing to 0603 as our products demand smaller boards. Brad Back, Norb wrote: Hi All Today is the fist time for a surface mount board. Which is the most common footprint used for resisters 603,805,1206 ? The chip I

Norb, By the way, when I suggested 0805 footprints, I was not taking in to consideration voltage or power requirements. Be sure that ANY component and footprint is acceptable for the voltage and power before designing it in to your PCB. Regards, -- Mark Richards ON Semiconductor 5005 E.

Norb, my comment would be 0603 is marginally most common over 0805s, but Mark could be correct. So 6 of one, half a dozen of the other. Brad Velander, Lead PCB Designer, Norsat International Inc., #300 - 4401 Still Creek Dr., Burnaby, B.C., V5C 6G9. Tel. (604) 292-9089 direct Fax (604)

More values are easier cheaper in 0805. For example, check out 20 MOhm, very difficult to find in 0603 if you do find it, the price is ridiculous. For 1M and less, I use 0603, for anything above 1M, I still use 0805. Brian Guralnick - Original Message - From: Brad

Where resistor footprints are concerned, you use not only what you can find but what will work for your application, Sometimes they are 0603, most times they are 0805, again, what is your application. ~j - Original Message - From: Brian Guralnick [EMAIL PROTECTED] To: Protel EDA Forum

Here is my take: 1206 parts are becoming harder to find and more expensive that 0805's due to (in my understanding) the amount of expensive and rare materials used to form the end contacts. The amounts in an 0805 are a fraction of what is used in a 1206. I am looking to the future when 0805's

Now I just need to wait for 0201's to follow this price prediction and I'll be happy :-) Just go to the supermarket and buy some ground black pepper. It's cheaper! But it's resistance probably changes with humidity ;-) Best regards, Ivan Baggett Bagotronix Inc. website: www.bagotronix.com

In the power supply business we like to be able to change the width of the traces depending on how much current they are carrying. Is there any way to autoroute such a beast, or are we stuck with the same width for any node? best regards mark

Do you really need microstrip corners when protel can lay curved (fixed width) tracks? Don't want to teach you to suck eggs, but in case you don't know: Try hitting [Shift]+[Space] a few times when laying tracks to alter the placement mode. Tom. -Original Message- From: Mark

Thanks for the Email Ian. I had an access violation when trying to install the server (emailed you the details), however all seems to be well. I do get video memory *noise* when the cursor is taken outside the desktop. This is not a problem for normal operation however. Thanks for a useful tool.
