I've been looking at several board designs here and noticed that the
power planes all use 1 oz. copper. I don't see any problems with going
to 1/2 oz., but don't want to cause any problems. The boards in
question are surface mount with direct connects to the planes. The
designs are single board computers (digital logic, no high power
devices). Is 1/2 oz copper for power planes common or uncommon for
this type of situtation?
