According to a table in one of my textbooks titled "Elements of
Electromagnetics" by Sadiku, typical dielectric strength (V/m) for
Air (1 atm.) is 3e6
Glass is 35e6
Mica is 70e6
Quartz is 30e6
It is fair to say that FR4 is at least 10 times air. Doing some
quick unit manipulations, I get that air's strength is about 75 V/mil.
So 5x that is about 375 V/mil. FR4 is at least 10 times that and most
So I would say that for about 5 mil of FR4, you are looking at 3,750 V/mil
of applied field before the dielectric starts conducting. This should be
a conservative number.
