    Hello,

    I'm making a circuit to drive a 160V , 20A DC motor , I made a prototype and tested it using a standard pcb that is available in my city , using an iron to print traces then using acid to itch the board , I made the trace wirth as large as possible , but I want the circuit to be reliable to work in high temperature and to be able to work for long hours .

    -what are the alternatives to this method .

    -are pcbs with thicker layers made using the same method I mentioned , or using electroplating or spraying or something else .

    -what are the steps of the ultraviolet method , and is it better than the one I mentioned.
