PCB Layout Recommendations

The PCB layout for isolation leakage current measurements must be based on the requirements and components selected for the design.

  • The high-voltage section of the system must not have any polygons to HV positive, HV negative, or PE.
  • Maintain creepage and clearance distances required for isolation between the HV positive, HV negative, and PE.
  • Place thin film resistors in series or a series parallel combination that maintains the isolation and does not allow any low-ohmic paths due to PCB, humidity, or liquids, which are all probable occurrences on the PCB.
  • Maintain creepage and clearance distances required for isolation components (AMC3330 and TPSI2140) as explained in the device data sheet.
  • To minimize noise, take care when placing analog lines to avoid noise from relays and power switching components.
  • Follow the component data sheet to minimize the EMC issues on layout.

Figure 2-13 shows the PCB layout recommendations.
