Hi guys, I need to design a rogowski coil on a 2 layer PCB.How can I draw a simply rogowski coil on a PCB software? Are there any ways i can do it?It should look something like this:Original article at http://www.element14.com/community/message/165968?tstart=0#165968.

You can draw one part of the coil, for example two vias and the wire connection. Now select it with GROUP and do a CUT and PASTE to duplicate it. Easiest way is to do this in the command line. Some preparation first. Set a MARK in the centre of the coil. Now you can use polar coordinates for duplication.What you would do with the mouse  can be done in the comand line, as well.The syntax would look like this CUT (>CP14 0)   this selects the group and puts into the paste buffer;                          similar to a Ctrl+right click onto the polar coords 14 0;  > stands for right click,  C for Ctrl pressed,                          P for polarPASTE R12.5 (P14 12.5)   this places the group rotated by 12.5° in an angle of 12.5° and the same                                        radius of 14 around the centre Simply try a bit to get out how it works...

Thanks Richard, that sounds doable, can you tell me which program I should try that on?Sorry, I'm new to this.Original article at http://www.element14.com/community/message/166392?tstart=0#166392.

Try Eagle. If the board is less than 100x80mm you can experiment on the free version.CadSoft EAGLE PCB Design Software|Support, Tutorials, ShopOriginal article at http://www.element14.com/community/message/166394?tstart=0#166394.

i managed to get Eagle working but unable to replicate the pattern in my first post (Rogoswki coil).Any tips I can achieve it? - the bottom trace should be connected to top trace at the Via. Picture below shows what i have managed to draw.   Also is it possible to automate the duplication process (PASTE command that increment)Original article at http://www.element14.com/community/message/167104?tstart=0#167104.

I tried using another software - CST Microwave and was successful in creating the desired design but have problems exporting it to gerber.Would appreciate if there's any other suggestions on designing and fabricating a PCB based rogowski coil.Original article at https://www.element14.com/community/message/173162?tstart=0#173162.

With regards to using EAGLE to develop Rogowski coils, I got assistance from jorge <jorge.garcia@cadsoftusa.com> and he shared that:EAGLE unfortunately doesn't have any built-in mechanism to create rogowski coil structures. The only way to do it in EAGLE is to code in ULP to perform the mechanical calculations based on some input parameters and then script out the creation of these features. Hence i decided to try other software.Original article at https://www.element14.com/community/message/173221?tstart=0#173221.
