Heavy copper PCB for new engery vehicles Heavy Copper PCB Board does not have a set of definition per IPC. According to PCB industry, peopel generally use this name to identify a printed circuit board with copper conductors 3 oz/ft2 - 10 oz/ft2 in inner and/or outer layers. And Extreme heavy copper PCB refers to 20 oz/ft2 to 200 oz/ft2 printed circuit board. Heavy copper board normally used for a various products but not limited to: high power distribution, heat dissipation, planar transformers, power convertors and new engery vehicles, etc.
Heavy copper PCB means the foil thickness of the Printed Circuit Board greater than 3 oz (100 microns or four mils) typically. It is usually used for high electric current supply or some power circuits that are used in the automotive business. It can also be designed in the outer layer or inner layer. The thickness of heavy copper can also vary depending on the manufacturer, but they offer the same purpose. You should always use the best heavy copper PCB with the right thickness because a poor PCB cannot pass the heavy current. So, using a poor quality PCB [...]

Heavy Copper PCBs are printed circuit boards featuring copper conductors 3 oz/ft2 – 10 oz/ft2 in inner or outer layers. These printed circuit boards are valued immensely, due to their thermal management capabilities. When heavier copper is electroplated to the PCB, it ensures high reliability and efficient power distribution. This post discusses heavy copper PCBs in detail. Advantages of Heavy Copper PCB Heavy copper PCBs are normally used in high power transmission applications due to several advantages they offer. Let us look at few of them. Heavy base copper allows delivery of consistent and reliable power. The [...]
This article is for design guide about heavy copper PCB (heavy copper printed circuit board) and DFM (design for manufacturing) is the line width and line space for heavy copper PCB (heavy copper printed circuit board), meanwhile the DFM (design for manufacturing) is very important for heavy copper PCB (heavy copper printed circuit board) because most of PCB design guides will not meet heavy copper PCB (heavy copper printed circuit board). Many of PCB suppliers can manufacture PCB with 4 mil ~ 5mil line width and line space as min trace/space, but it is not meet the requests of heavy [...]
