PCB Layout Rules and Experiences
If the experienced engineers want to add some more rules, feel free to share them here.
Or, if you have some classic real world experiences to share, that would be good too.
I have 9 basic rules I use for layout, and you can find these in article  and  in our design center. http://www.ridleyengineering.com/design-center.html [43-44] Power Supply Development Diary Parts X and XI
If you have a layout engineer not familiar with power (or even if he is) these rules can be useful to share with them.
