Hi! Here's a creepage question...
In creepage...will current actually flow across
a PWB to get back to its source?
So Hypothetically say I have a 20KV design and
the return path hooks up to the PWB but not to the
Will the current "creep" across the board to get
back to it's source?
Are their rules about this distance...
(I want it to get back to the source...)
PS I have never been to this web sight but can see
it could come in VERY handy!!!
