How Big Should a Printed Circuit Board Be?
May 1973 (vol. 22 no. 5)
pp. 537-542
I.E. Sutherland, Evans and Sutherland Computer Corporation
This correspondence outlines a theory for choosing printed circuit board dimensions in order to avoid crowding of printed wiring. Given a number of components to be mounted on the board and the dimensions of wiring, the theory predicts a minimum board size that should be easy to lay out. The theory does not tell how many components should be put on a board.
Index Terms:
Circuit board layout, component placement, wire routing.
