The IC chips, active and passive components are all connected by traces or wire. The traces on the PCB are assume to be of short circuit, which is 0Ω. This assumption is reasonable if it conduct a very small amount of current. When the conductor starts to carry larger amount of current, the voltage drop across the trace could be significant, causing intermediate hardware problem.

If you are expecting a large current flowing through the traces, you have to keep in mind to provide a wider trace to increase the conductivity of the cable. Larger trace width means lower resistance.

For my PCB route software, the defined trace width for power is 1.27mm and signal is 0.38mm. Sometimes there is a need to route the trace through narrow space. In this situation, I would have to use the recommended trace width for power min, and signal min. Usually I will keep this narrow trace as short as possible to avoid higher resistance.

Seldom do I need to worry about traces carrying signal information. I am more worried about the conductor distributing the dc supply to individual circuit zone. Whenever possible, I would provide a wider traces for my 5V and ground supply.

When designing the PCB routing for my power supply, I would use the star topologies. This will ensure a evenly spread for the current distribution, hence lowering the burden of individual traces. I have actually experience such technical issue during my final year school project. The noise problem is somehow reduce after the attempt to improve on the trace routing. Another experience involve power up a remote system about 10m away. The distance is quite near and the power cable is rather thick to me. The voltage at the remote end is found to be too low to power the remote system. We have to double the cable conductor in order to resolved the problem. Our equipment conduct high current of about 20A if I remember correctly. The problem might not be obvious because the high current being drawn might happen during certain hard to determine event. For example, when your system trigger the lightings or motor which draws very high current for a short period of time. The voltage drop cause by the sudden high current draw might cause your system to fail. Therefore the design should always cater for the worst case. Always find out the maximum possible current drawn. Over design the system to ensure that the system will not fail in the worst case scenario. Just to make a note, that I have been referring to dc voltage supply.

For high voltage AC supply, I guess it is a different way of looking at it. My understanding in high voltage system is quite weak.

On the left is the reference table to estimate the resistance of the trace for my PCB routing. I have assume the worst case at temperature 100˚C with the copper layer of 1oz thick. Seldom do you need to refer to this table, unless you have encounter space restriction for your high current carrying traces. It is my usual practise to double the current carrying capacity. 2 times the maximum current I will be expecting. If you have the space, make it wider.

Electrical Resistance Equations:

Resistance = Resistivity x Length/Area



Question 1:

1oz copper PCB, Trace width 0.25mm, Trace length 0.1m, Operating temperature 25˚C


Solution 1:

Copper resistivity at  25˚C is 1.68x10-8Ω.m

Resistance = 1.7x10-8Ω.m  x  0.1m  /  (1oz x 0.25mm)

                 = 1.7x10-8Ω.m  x  0.1m  /  (35um x 0.25mm)

                 = 1.7x10-8Ω.m  x  0.1m  /  (8.75nm2)

                 = 1.7x10-8Ω.m  x  0.0114x109m-1

                 = 0.19


Question 2:

1oz copper PCB, Trace width 0.25mm, Trace length 0.1m, Operating temperature 100˚C


Solution 2:

Copper resistivity at  100˚C is 2.17x10-8Ω.m,

Resistance = 2.2x10-8Ω.m  x  0.1m  /  (1oz x 0.25mm)

                 = 2.2x10-8Ω.m  x  0.0114x109m-1

                 = 0.25


I have also provide the computation for copper resistance for your reference. Taking this opportunity to do further read up in order to explain in a simplified form.

Area is the cross sectional area of the conductor. Just like a water pipe, the larger the cross sectional area, the easier the current is able to flow through.

Resistivity defines the resistance of the material for a unit of length at a certain temperature. The resistivity for the material copper at 25˚C is found to be 1.7x10-8Ω.m

The resistivity changes with temperature. The resistance will increase as the temperature increase. The term for this changing resistivity with temperature is known as the thermal resistivity of that particular material.

The material resistivity would therefore look like a graph curve. They are obtained through test and experiment. For some material, the graph curve could be approximated in the form of equation. This complicated formula describe the resistance behavior of the material under different temperature condition. For copper material, it can be represented from the following equation,

Copper resistivity = ρ0(1+α(Temperature-T0))

= 1.7x10-8Ω.m  x  (1 + 3.9x10-3/˚C  x  (100˚C-25˚C))

= 2.2x10-8Ω.m at a temperature of 100˚C

0 is the material resistivity at T0 temperature>

As you can see from the calculation on the left, the increase in temperature from 25˚C to 100˚C has increase the 0.1m copper trace by 0.06Ω. This is about 30% increase in the resistance.

To keep the topic simple, we will not go into the details of varying temperature. There can be other factor that can affect the resistance of the material.

Here is a quick and simple graph showing the change in temperature in relation with the trace width and the current flowing through it. (taken from the magazine elektor 2010-02). The graph assume the pcb copper trace thickness to be 35um (1oz) & that it is place in a open air environment (not enclosed inside a box/casing). For example, given the trace width of 0.6mm, and a 1.5A current flowing through it, we can expect the copper area to rise by another 10C.

2. Wire and Cable gauge

I have put up this wire gauge guide for my own reference. Very often there is a need to return to this reference to choose an appropriate cable for use. I have also written an article some time back. Myth about how the cable relate to their resistance. It is taken out from the main webpage but I have place a link here, for anyone who are interested to understand more.

NOTE: The following guideline is a brief guideline for copper ampacity (current rating or current-carrying capacity) of the cable used for power supplying purpose. The ampacity is defined as the maximum current the cable can withstand. Any current higher than that will generate enough heat to burn away  the cable. There are many factor affecting the current capacity of the cable, and it should be compensated accordingly. I would advise to select the cable, with at least double the current-carrying capacity for the intended equipment. Never operate near the cable current-capacity limits. You will never know when, the current overruns. Some of the factors that will affect the current-carrying capacity of a cable are:

- Conductive wire cross section area.

- Wire material. The temperature the material can withstand without melting out.

- Temperature. If the wire/insulator jacket can withstand higher temperature, the cable is able to carry more current.

     - place of installation or the surrounding temperature.

     - material of insulation jacket/skin/cover.

     - how much the cable can dissipate heat

- Stranded or solid wire type. Stranded wire can carry more current than a solid wire for AC type of signal/power. This is due to a phenomenon known as skin effect.

The factors involve are quite complex. The table is a simplified reference for myself to select the cables. Always allow a larger safety margin of minimum x2 when you chose your cable. Do take careful note of what you deploy.? There are many other factor, eg screw connections, plug contact which will affects the results. If the cable has the slightest warm, it is quite clear that the cable will be hitting it's limit any time soon.

3. Advance conductor


Special material for conductivity connection. Some references for non-traditional or advance conductor materials.


I happen to see some special wire product that I think I should put them in this website for reference.

The follow shows a rubber strip (a black layer sandwich in between the two white layer). It is call the elastomer connector. It is typically used to connect a flat LCD display panel to the pcb board without any soldering. It is quite cool when it was being shown to me for the first time. The LCD and pcb is connected with this elastomer connector sandwich in between.

The conductive fabric actually can feels like a typical cotton cloth material. Some other feels like a nylon fabric, a bit like plastic. This is great for RF shielding, which we used it to test the performance of RF transmission through various material.
