Why are there swirls or zig-zag lines on the PCB samples?

I send my PCB design to manufacturer for prototype, but they send back deviated PCB samples with additional zig-zag. Why are there zig-zag lines on it? Reducing interference?

“Zig zags” are used to ensure a group of traces are all the same length. It makes sure that signal from various paths arrives at roughly the same time, reducing latency and sync issues.

What Others Are Asking

Is PCB coating poisonous ?

We decide to apply coating on PCB to ensure good lifespan. But, on the other hand, is it poisonous? We are considering the environmental effect of our product.

How does the PCB regulate the dimming of solar energy light?

I often design dimmable light, but never handle that power by solar energy. Could you please tell how to realize it. I think now we need to follow the environmental-friendly trend and launch some green electric products.
