The track size of any pcb is really important particularly when high currents are involved. Such a materia is strictly ruled by a lot of directives, almost always of military origins, not really important for a daily use.

All these directives (for people intereted in) are listed, public and published: here the link .

In an hobbystic environment such directives are not really important, what is really necessary is to follow some simple rules. Pcb are sold or realized normally into two different thickness: 35(micro)m and 70(micro)m. According to such a condition we can set the size according to the following table:

Current (amp)

width for 35um (mils)

width for 70 um (mils)

1 10 5
2 30 15
3 50 25
4 80 40
5 110 55
6 150 75
7 180 90
8 220 110
9 260 130
10 300 150


But what happens if, for instance, a big track must be connected from the bottom to the top layer? the secret consists in create simple pads to join the two tracks (top and bottom) in multiple points.
