    Hello!

    I am looking forward to construct PCB for audio amplifiers and power regulators. But it turned up to me that PCBs layout maybe play a significant role to shut out noise for some audio chips (as TDA2003) and for power regulator (for its thermal conductivity maybe?).
    So, if anyone knows a good book to download or even to buy make a suggestion.
    And how important do you thing is the PCB layout for NOT so high switching audio chips and for regulators?

    Thanks!

    There are plenty of guides on the net about pcb design rules and layout. For audio power ICs I would closely follow the test-board layouts in the data sheets. E

    hi vol,
    Did you double click John's link.?
    It works OK for me.

    I just wanted to ask real people and not machines..

    Hello,

    Here is an other PCB guide from TI.

    Hello,

    I also see the question of the maximum allowed current for a PCB trace.
    The attached PDF will give you some info on that.

    Have you ever tore apart a audio amp and try to figure out the layout and why??

    I don't want to make assumptions about the layout of a PCB. What I do is see other boards layouts and try to make something similar, but i want to go just a little bit deeper. Little bit because i'm still only interested in analog, non high speed circuits.

    Hello vol_

    I think this might be useful for you.

    Hello Again

    Maybe this book can help (Chapter 12 and 13).
    File too big to upload :)

    Hello,

    The chapters can be uploaded separately.
