#### PCB Calculator

Ver. 2.2

**This site contains tools useful
when calculating traces and vias in PCB design.**

**Some of these tools are based on the theoretical models
and some on experience. Some tools are limited in what they can
acheive. If these limits are violated the program will alarm.**

**The unit of length is generally mm. In some calculations
the unit of length is of no importance as long as the same unit
is used overall.**

**Note! The outcome of the calculations reflects ideal circumstances.
Influencing traces or production tolerances are not considered.**

Impedance:

Calculation of impedance, capacitance, signal velocity of traces
on different layers.

Calculation of differential impedance is also possible.

Crosstalk:

Calculation of the crosstalk between traces on the same ground
plane or on different ground planes.

Current
carrying capacity

Calculation of the maximum current a trace or via can conduct.

This applies to continous current as well as transients.

Thermovia:

Calculation of the maximum heat conduct of a plated via.
