Specification For PCB Design Of LED Switching Power Supply(1)

- Sep 01, 2018-

In the design of any switch power supply, the physical design of PCB board is the last step. If the design method is not appropriate, PCB may radiate excessive electromagnetic interference and cause power supply instability. The following is an analysis of matters needing attention in each step:

1. Establish component parameters from schematic diagram to PCB design process -> input principle network table -> design parameters setting -> manual layout -> manual wiring -> verification design -> review ->CAM output.

2. The spacing between adjacent wires for parameter setting shall meet the electrical safety requirements, and the spacing shall be as wide as possible for the convenience of operation and production.The minimum spacing should at least be able to withstand voltage. When the wiring density is low, the spacing of signal lines can be appropriately increased. For the signal lines with large gap between high and low levels, it should be as short and increase the spacing as possible.

The distance from the inner hole edge of the pad to the edge of the printed plate is greater than 1mm, which can avoid the defect of the pad during processing.When the wire connecting with the pad is thinner, the connection between the pad and the pad should be designed as water drop. The advantage of this is that the pad does not peel easily, but the wire and the pad do not disconnect easily.

The practice of component layout has proved that even if the circuit schematic diagram is designed correctly and the printed circuit board is designed improperly, the reliability of the electronic equipment will be adversely affected.For example, if the two thin parallel lines of the printing plate are close together, the signal waveform delay will be generated and reflected noise will be formed at the end of the transmission line.Due to the disturbance caused by the thoughtless consideration of power supply and ground wire, product performance will decline. Therefore, when designing the printed circuit board, the correct method should be adopted.Each switch power supply has four current loops:

(1) power switch ac loop

(2) output rectifier ac loop

(3) input signal source current loop

(4) the input circuit of output load current circuit charges the input capacitance through an approximate dc current, and the filter capacitance mainly plays a role of broadband energy storage;Similarly, the output filter capacitor is used to store high frequency energy from the output rectifier while eliminating dc energy from the output load loop.Therefore, the connection terminal of the input and output filter capacitors is very important. The input and output current loop should only connect to the power source from the connection terminal of the filter capacitors.If the connection between the input/output loop and the power switch/rectifier loop cannot be directly connected to the capacitor's terminal, the alternating energy will be filtered by the input/output capacitor and radiated to the environment.Power switch ac circuits and the communication of the rectifier circuit contains high of trapezoidal current, the current in the harmonic components is very high, its frequency is greater than the switch base frequency, the peak amplitude of up to 5 times for the amplitude of the input/output dc current, transition time is usually about 50 ns. The two circuits are most likely to produce electromagnetic interference, so must the other printed wiring in power source to cloth before these ac circuits, each loop three main components of the filter capacitor, the power switch or rectifier, inductor or transformer shall be placed adjacent to each other, adjust the current path between the element position make them as short as possible.The best way to establish the switch power layout is similar to its electrical design. The best design process is as follows:

Placement transformer

Design power switch current loop

Design the output rectifier current loop
