This paper reveals a new methodology for predicting the most efficient design rules to follow for high density printed wiring boards prior to physical layout. The only input is from a schematic diagram, parts list and proposed board size. The methodology attempts to a priori determine the wiring capabilities of different PWB designs for a given product application. The particular focus is the difference between through‐hole and HDI designs.
