Re: Voltage and Amps Over Traces and Pours

So after submitting my thread I came across the same circuitcalculator link from the reply to your thread. Unfortunately due to the space constraints around the 6pin power connector I won't be able to achieve the 3mm trace width cause it would require me to use 5oz copper which would be ridiculously...

Capturei.PNG Being my first PCB design I could't find the correct sata connector pattern in diptrace or a detailed datasheet with all of the pin spa...
