Why you should keep your layer count even.

When your design requirements add up to an odd number of layers, it almost always makes sense to add another layer.
There are several good reasons for this;
An extra ground plane can be used to provide a more robust signal return.
Board construction is more likely to be symmetrical, reducing the likelyhood of excessive warp and twist.
The difference between 3 - 4, 5 - 6, 7 - 8 layers, etc. will not increase the cost of your order.
You could add one more signal or power layer in order to reduce routing density. 5/23/2011 2:32:37 PM
