Calculation of current-carrying capacity

Calculating the current-carrying capacity of printed circuit boards.

Our calculations for the current carrying capacity of a printed circuit board are software-supported – based on empirically determined results. The calculations of the current-carrying capacity ensure that your application ultimately functions perfectly.

The following points, amongst others, are taken into account when making the calculations:

  • Temperature conditions
  • Circuit board technology
  • Layer stack-up
  • Number of high-current conductor tracks

The dimensioning of conductor tracks is subject to a standard set of rules. If you want things to be absolutely accurate, our Product Management can support you right from the very early stages.
