Description: If you've ever played with Eagle PCB, you know that silk screen indicators are one of the most important aspects of your layout. We created this board to illustrate various text sizes and ratios (text width). You may use size 0.020 text with a ratio of 8% on your PCB layout, but as the reference board demonstrates, you really can't read it. We also included various drill sizes and trace widths but they are not completely accurate - the manufacturer increased the really small trace widths to avoid DRC violations. This is a great board to quickly determine the best size and ratio for text, drill sizes, and trace widths when creating your next design.
