    Does anybody have any suggestions for good books to help with the process of
    physically laying out a board, especially for non-RF applications ? I know
    there are good app notes from IC manufacturers for high speed circuit
    layout, and I've read a bunch of them over the years, but I'm looking for
    guidelines like:

    board materials and thicknesses
    trace widths and trace separation
    how wide and thick a trace needs to be for a given current
    what all the different layers really mean to the manufacturing process
    what all the output files mean in the manufacturing process
    types of vias
    copper thicknesses
    layer organization tips
    techniques for reducing board manufacturing costs

    excellent book.

    Printed Circuits handbook, Clyde F. Coombs has a whole bunch of goodies.

    One of the best techniques I have found is to lay out a truly ratshit
    PCB, then spend 3 weeks making it work.

    current charts are available on-line. look harder.
