Conductor track routing

During the production of the printed circuit board, the photolaminate can be damaged if the tracks are laid at acute angles.

During surface treatment, harmful chemical agents can concentrate in these areas. Conductor paths should have as few corners as possible and be laid at a slant.


When connecting two adjacent component terminals on SMD housings, the connection should be in the form of a "U".
A direct connection is difficult to distinguish from a solder bridge during visual inspection.
