Abstract

Described is a method for computing the spacing distribution between adjacent conductors in a printed circuit plane. First, a table describing each wiring segment ("bracket") is created. The spacing distribution is calculated for one wiring plane at a time. On each plane all brackets are parallel and begin and end at integer coordinates. Choosing the "X" axis parallel to the brackets allows three integers to describe each bracket: an "x" coordinate for each end and a single "y" coordinate. For bracket I let these be denoted XB(I), XE(I), and Y(I).
