Claim of US Patent No. 11,071,208


1. A circuit board component layout determination method, comprising the steps of:(1) deciding a circuit board specification, and quantity and specification of all components to be placed on the circuit board;
(2) calculating a total area occupied by the components to be placed on the circuit board under a normal operation, and calculating a layout area of the circuit board, wherein the layout area of the circuit board is obtained by subtracting the area of the circuit board that cannot be laid from the circuit board area of the circuit board;
(3) analyzing layout density of circuit board components to obtain a layout density percentage of the circuit board components;
(4) determining whether or not the placement of the components is feasible according to the density percentage of the circuit board components, and if yes, carrying out the step (5), if not, returning to the step (1); and
(5) proceed to formally place the components onto the circuit board,
wherein the step (3) calculates an area of the circuit board that can be laid for all components intended to be laid on the circuit board, and calculates the total occupied area of all components installed on the circuit board under a normal operation, and uses the total occupied area of the components as a numerator and the area of the circuit board that can be laid as a denominator to obtain the circuit board component layout density percentage.
