    I dont really understand what you mean. Do you mean an edge connector like cards for PC slots? Or how close to the edge can you have traces?

    Hi kubbek,


    Thanks for your reply. I am using PADS software for 4 layer PCB design.

    My professor advised me to use periphery of the board for a connection(center papped coil).

    I have traces in PADS for connection to terminals.

    Can you please suggest something about this


    Thanks and regards

    I still don´t get what you mean. Maybe some pictures of the layout?

    Hi kubeek,


    I am attaching the picture of my PCB . You can see the white rectangle which is ceter tapped coil. I need to use periphery of the board for the connection. Can you tell me how to do this

    You can either make the board larger, or try sneaking the trace under C7-C11.
    I never used PADS, but why doesn´t it show the overlapping top and bottom traces? For example below C2 you should be able to see where is the blue trace going.
