Why No Part Subs is a Bad Idea- components substitutions-HitechPCB

Across all industries, component shortages are forcing design engineers to seek alternative parts and materials, or entirely redesign their projects.With analysts predicting the shortages to last potentially through 2018, the market is scrambling to find ways to keep projects on-time and on-budget. One common practice currently compounding the challenge of limited supply is a refusal to accept part substitutions.   When designing a new board or revising an existing project, engineers tend use familiar parts. This reduces risk of the board not working and makes it easier to put together the necessary files including a Bill of Material (BOM).  To [...]

The Definition and Features of HDI PCB (High density pcb)

High-Density Interconnection (HDI) board is one of the key technologies driving advancements in PCB electronics. Through its multiple via processes, HDI technology minimizes the number of layers, making for smaller yet more powerful PCB circuitry.   Definition HDI, or High-Density Interconnection, is a PCB technology that emerged around the end of the 20th century. The advantages it holds over the traditional PCBs fueled its popularity tremendously.   HDI PCB by laser drilling technology. That precludes the drawbacks you face when using the traditional mechanical drilling technology, including higher cost and improvement difficulties.   HDI PCB fabrication deploys advanced multilayer technology [...]

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SMT AND SMD

SMT stands for Surface Mount Technology, the entire technology of mounting and soldering surface mount components onto a printed circuit board or PCB. SMD is an abbreviation for surface mount devices, the both are different.   Surface Mount Technology, Firstly, a PCB stencil is aligned on the surface of the boards and solder paste is applied using a squeegee to ensure the pads are coated with a uniform and controlled amount of solder paste.   Secondly, via a pick and place machine or hand placement, the components are mounted onto the boards in their respective locations. The wet solder paste [...]

Common Causes Of PCB Failure, Explained

Printed circuit boards can be found in virtually every tool we use on a daily basis. From computers and cell phones to our television sets and portable speakers, we rely on PCBs to make our world work. But sometimes, PCBs don't work the way they should. Whether due to material defects or environmental factors, here are just a few of the most common reasons for PCB failure. 1.Material Defects. A lot of things can potentially go wrong during printed circuit board assembly. Material defect is chief among the most popular causes for board failure. If a material used in the [...]

Colorful PCBs Does Solder Mask Hue Impact Functionality- Circuit Board Assembly

Traditionally, circuit boards are green. But today's world is more diverse -- even when it comes to PCBs! Although green boards are still popular, many PCB assembly services now offer a variety of solder mask colors to customers. What does this mean for the PCB fabrication and Circuit Board Assembly process? And can you expect to receive all different hues of PCBs when you place an order for circuit board assembly services? We'll discuss this colorful topic in today's post. In years past, PCB solder mask was almost exclusively green There are a few reasons for this. One is that [...]

SMD Components-PCB Assembly & SMT Assembly & Circuit board Assembly

For many years now, the hybrid electronic industry has been using the art of reflow soldering and refining it. Therefore, one cannot consider reflow soldering a new manufacturing process. The advent of Surface Mount Technology (SMT) and lead-free soldering has further expanded the methods and techniques the industry uses for reflow soldering. Goals of Reflow Soldering of Circuit board Assembly Reflow soldering aims to satisfy two basic goals. The first goal is more traditional, including: Achieving maximum flexibility in allowing soldering of a large number of components while minimizing the changeover time.Achieving uniform, durable, and effective solder joints The second [...]

Why You Need 3D X-Ray Testing- Printed Circuit Board Assembly-Hitech PCB

Printed circuit board assembly has come a long way in recent years. Now that PCB assembly can easily be performed by machine, PCB manufacturers have been able to increase their production and drastically reduce the time required for this process. In fact, a few PCB assemblers even offer standard turnaround times of three days or less -- 75% faster than the industry average. However, clients who rely on these circuit boards will never be willing to sacrifice quality for speed. In order to ensure PCB production maintains a high-quality standard and exceeds customer expectations, PCB assemblers must prioritize testing during [...]

What to Expect from a Flex PCB Manufacturer

The constant usage of electronic products in our day-to-day life and the extensive array of devices we use for varied applications is quite evident of our dependence upon them. But have you ever thought what these devices are dependent upon for their smooth operation? Printed circuit boards to be precise.   What is a Flexible Printed circuit Board? Flexible circuit boards are best suited for electronic devices, and are made of plastic layers like polyimide film (in many cases and for special purposes, fluorocarbon and aramid films are also used). The flexible laminate of the PCB consists of a conducting [...]

Something About Heavy Copper PCBs

Heavy Copper PCBs are printed circuit boards featuring copper conductors 3 oz/ft2 – 10 oz/ft2 in inner or outer layers. These printed circuit boards are valued immensely, due to their thermal management capabilities. When heavier copper is electroplated to the PCB, it ensures high reliability and efficient power distribution. This post discusses heavy copper PCBs in detail.   Advantages of Heavy Copper PCB   Heavy copper PCBs are normally used in high power transmission applications due to several advantages they offer. Let us look at few of them.   Heavy base copper allows delivery of consistent and reliable power. The [...]

What Factors Slow Down PCB Manufacturing- prototype PCB assembly-quick turn PCB assembly

Most people who need PCB and PCB assembly services don't have a lot of extra time to spare. That's why there's an increased need for faster services that don’t sacrifice quality or are too expensive. But finding the right PCB partner can be difficult without thoroughly researching all the options. Not all PCB manufacturing companies are created equal; if you make assumptions, you could end up dealing with unnecessary (and costly) delays you hadn't anticipated. Let's take a closer look at some of the factors that can slow down the PCB manufacturing process.   Prototyping Delays: If you're developing a [...]
