    Have you ever just looked at a motherboard and wondered how it was designed? How did the design engineers decide where to place certain chips, or components? What are these strange components placed all over the board? Why do motherboard manufacturers make a big deal out of multi-layer PCB’s? Today we’ll be taking a good look at what exactly goes into the process of a motherboard’s design, from the planning stages to the finished product. Since this can be a very complex topic, I’m not going to be covering every last step, and I won’t be going into incredible depth in areas that do not require it to be done.

    An example of a typical four layer design

    Layer 1 - Signal (Top Surface)
    ------
    Prepreg (2116 Dielectric typically; ~4.5 mils thick)
    -------
    Layer 2 - Copper Plane (Typically for Power Distribution)
    -------
    Core (Thicker Dielectric than the Prepreg; Width adjusted to make the board thickness ~62 mils)
    -------
    Layer 3 - Copper Plane (Typically for Ground)
    -------
    Prepreg (2116 Dielectric typically; ~4.5 mils thick)
    -------
    Layer 4 - Signal (Bottom Surface)
