What is Conductor Width

Conductor width is the width of the conductive tracks on a printed circuit board. It determines the amount of current that the track can safely carry without overheating or causing damage. The conductor width is typically expressed in units such as millimeters (mm) or mils (thousandths of an inch). The conductor width is influenced by various factors, including the material used, the thickness of the copper layer, the ambient temperature, and the desired temperature rise.
