Figures

Grahic Jump Location
Pins 1 and 2 should be connected, as should Pins 3 and 4. In the X-Y routing figure, solid lines are traces within one layer, dashed within another layer
Grahic Jump Location
Models 1a and 1b have bare traces as the top and bottom layers. Models 2a and 2b have copper traces/FR4 layers as the top and bottom layers. Black is copper and white is FR4
Grahic Jump Location
Thermal warpage of the PCB with in-plane wavy traces. The triangles are FE results, and the fine line is a quadratic curve fit
