Do you know what is a PCB or Printed Circuit Board?

PCB or Printed Circuit Board is the traditional name for the bare board of which we produce with the layout data and which will be used to mount the components on. A printed circuit board, or PCB, is used to mechanically support and electrically connect electronic components using conductive pathways, tracks or signal traces etched from copper sheets laminated onto a non-conductive substrate.Components are generally soldered onto the PCB to both electrically connect and mechanically fasten them to it. When the board has only copper tracks and features, and no circuit elements such as capacitors, resistors or active devices have [...]

Inspection Method of PCB assembly Short Circuit

PCBA(Printed Circuit board Assembly) short circuit is a relatively common failure in PCB Assembly. once PCB assembly occured short circuit, which requires the professional electronic engineers to analyze the reason and deal with it to avoid irreparable losses.   Inspection Method of PCBA Short Circuit   If the board (PCB) will adopt manual soldering, developing a good habit is much vital. First, check the circuit board visually before soldering, and use a multimeter to check whether the key circuits (especially the power supply and ground) are short-circuited or not; Secondly, once soldered a chip to the board, using a multimeter to check whether the power supply and ground are short-circuited or not; In addition, do not throw the solder iron randomly when soldering. If you throw the solder onto the [...]

PCBA assembly Appearance Inspection Instructions

Printed circuit board assembly (PCB assembly, PCBA), often use abbreviations—— PCBA, is an important electronic parts, is the support of electronic components,the provider of the electronic circuit connection.Because it is produced by using electronic printing technology, it is called "printed" circuit board.Before appears in the printed circuit board, electronic components of interconnection between relied on wires connected directly and form a complete circuit. Now, the circuit bread board only to exist as an effective experiment tool,but the printed circuit board in the electronics industry has become the dominant position. But most people still don't know what is PCBA  appearance inspection [...]

Why Flex and Rigid-Flex PCB Tooling Costs Higher

There are many factors that influence flex and rigid-flex PCB, here are some of them. Tooling charges comes down to volume. For rigid-flex and/or flex prototypes and small volume runs, most are manufactured with laser cutting or some type of mechanical routing. This is used to create the surface mount features in the Coverlays, part outline, and if required, the outline of the stiffeners. Electrical testing on these lower volumes is typically done with a flying probe. In volume production of flex and rigid-flex circuits, you need to switch over to steel rule dies or male/female punch and die sets. These steel [...]

Printed Circuit Board Assembly

Printed Circuit Board Assembly The circuit board before the assembly of electric components is called Printed Circuit Board. After the soldering of all the elements on the board, it is known as Printed circuit Board Assembled, we called PCB assembly. The complete process of component's assembly is called Printed Circuit Assembly or Printed Circuit Board assembly or PCB board assembly. In this process, different automatic and manual assembly tools are used. We are assembler that offer PCB assembly. PCB boards cannot perform any function until and unless its assembly is completed. PCB assembly is a process of assembling and soldering [...]

The Basic Knowledge of PCB in PCB Assembly

In today's society,PCB is used widely in our all-sides life.As a necessary part, it plays an important role. Therefore, we have to have a good knowledge of PCB. Today I summarized PCB knowledge for you.  Definitions: For standard PCB, it is the combination of bare board and components on it. While for bare board PCB, it is called printed wiring board. We usually call it PWB. (1) Traces: The base material of PCB is comprised of dielectric, heat insulation, uneasy to bend materials. On its surface, we can see thin traces, its material is copper. Originally the copper covered the [...]

PCB & PCB assembly E-test fixture

The fixture or shelf used for testing is called a E-test fixture; the test racks we know here are for PCB and PCBA (PCB assembly) What raw materials do you need? Acrylic plates, locating posts, ejector pins, cards, leads, etc..In order to select according appropriate materials to produce the E-test fixture We need to choose it based on the actual situation, it can greatly reduce the cost, at the same time a general base night repeated use can greatly reduce the cost, and make the E-test fixture making standardization, convenient production, improve the quality of the E-test fixture. The selection [...]

RF PCB Layout: Interconnect Losses

Your trace geometry and layer stack will have a major effect on signal integrity as you route high frequency analog signals throughout your board. Newer designers will likely default to a microstrip geometry, possibly with guard vias to provide isolation between different circuit blocks and to suppress radiated emissions. The question of which trace geometry to use is about more than isolation; it is also about avoiding losses due to dielectric absorption, roughness losses, and scattering from your PCB substrate. The alternative to using microstrip transmission lines is to use stripline transmission lines. Routing striplines on a dedicated interior layer [...]

Mpcb or metal pcb

Thermal substrates for high watt density SMT applications   Metal core thermal PCB (MCPCBs, MCB, IMPCB or IMS) are widely used in applications where a dense wattage calls for a good thermal heat dissipation. The thermal efficiency gained by a metal based board allows for downsizing designs and removal of hardware. To avoid short circuits, there is an electrical insulation between the copper traces/pads and the base metal using a tailored dielectric layers with high thermal conductivity.   Thanks to metal core PCB, power densities can be increased while components remain cool, increasing life and durability. It also allows modules [...]

Electronics Manufacturing Steps of PCBA Circuit Board

Let’s understand the electronics manufacturing process of PCBA in details: Solder Paste Stenciling First and foremost, the PCBA company applies a solder paste to the printed circuit board. In this process, you need to put solder paste on certain portions of the board. That portion holds different components. The solder paste is a composition of different tiny metal balls. And, the most-used substance in the solder paste is tin i.e. 96.5%. Other substances of solder paste are silver and copper with 3% and 0.5% quantity respectively. The manufacturer mixes paste with a flux. Because flux is a chemical that helps [...]
