PCB Manufacturing Trends and Their Challenges

  With new and improved technologies, the field of Printed Circuit Board (PCB) manufacturing has been constantly evolving. The electronics industry is driven by innovations and better manufacturing methods that are growing in popularity. Improved technologies also demand the manufacturers to pay attention to the cost factors as well. With the existing technologies getting obsolete, it is important for manufacturers to keep up with the latest trends and developments. Let us get you through some of the most important developments in the PCB manufacturing industry, in the recent times.   PCB Manufacturing Trends and Their Impact   The PCB manufacturing [...]

PCB Manufacturing and PCB Assembly Step-by-Step Guide for Electronic Assembly process

Printed Circuit Board or PCB’s are an integral part of every electronic device. They are the green chips that you can find within all electronic devices. These green chips or Printed Circuit Boards are printed with copper lines called traces, which carry signals to various components. This systematic transmission of signals ensures the proper functioning of the electronic device. PCBs are omnipresent in every modern day electronic device. As the technology advances and the electronic devices becoming more and more compact, there is a drastic reduction in the size of the PCB. This reduction in size increases the complexity of [...]

Electrical Components Used in PCB Assemblies- Printed Circuit Boards-HitechPCB

An Overview of the Four Vital PCB  Electronic Components Let us understand the role of resistors, capacitors, diodes, and transistors in a PCB. Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) are composed of a wide range of electrical elements. The most decisive elements that are utilized in PCB assemblies are resistors, capacitors, diodes, and transistors. This blog is meant to familiarize you with these critical elements that contribute largely in the successful assembling of PCBs.   Resistors These elements play a crucial role in regulating the current flow to a safe limit. Resistors perform a vital task of providing only the required biasing [...]

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 [...]

PCB REVERSE ENGINEERING–From Hitech Circuits Co., Limited

PCB Reverse Engineering, also known as PCB Cloning or PCB Copy.The PCB copy ‘s work cloning the circuit board, producing samples, replacing components, making BOM list, derived schematic. PCB Reverse Engineering using Reverse Engineering technology onto the PCB which was designed and manufactured by others, it is to use PCB Board related software to copy someone else’s printed circuit board and then manufacture the pcb circuit board by yourself.With the PCB Reverse Engineering technology development, To the wide sense that PCB Reverse Engineering not only include PWB file extraction, PCB Cloning and PCB Copy and other related technical aspect, but [...]

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 [...]
