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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Designing a printed circuit board is a complex procedure as a number of stages are involved in developing different types of single and multi-layered boards. To create a fully functional board, various components are attached to it. The services provided by electronic assembly manufacturing companies are important for electronics industry as all the devices and gadgets are equipped with printed circuit boards with different circuitries. Now, let’s have a look at the most significant electronic components attached to a PCB that are as follow onnectors- These are used to establish electric connections. Resistors- They resist current Capacitors- [...]
When partnering with printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturers you tend to focus on the latest equipment for PCB assembly showcased by them. However, as a buyer, one should also check the other less exciting aspects of their manufacturing facility. It is important to educate yourself to see if the unnoticeable areas are keeping pace with the more visible features. One such aspect to look for in a PCB manufacturer’s facility is humidity control. This is one area where the manufacturer has to take care of two different goals. On one hand, high humidity is required to mitigate the risk [...]
SMT PCB Assemblies are getting more and more complex. While SMT PCB Assembly makers strive for 100% yield, the fact is that achieving it is extremely difficult. While a majority of electronics today utilize SMT Components however the reduced component sizes make putting them onto PCBs extremely difficult. Other than this, there are a number of other defects that SMT metal core pcb Assembly has to overcome, primary among them include: Poor Solder Paste Release Solder Paste Release, in turn, is determined by aspect ratio and surface area ratio. Aspect ratio compares the smallest dimension of the stencil aperture to the stencil [...]
The printed circuit board (PCB) industry has experienced rapid growth in recent times and studies show that predictions for the future are equally as optimistic. What is the key to this growth and what is driving it? Part of the reason is printed circuit boards are a building block for everything electronic. PCBs are used with conductive strips to act as insulating bases. They are usually in the form of fibreglass, and the conductive connections are made from copper through the etching process. In simple terms, PCBs are used when making electronic circuits. They may contain single or [...]
Key Requirements When Selecting an Aluminum PCB Manufacturer-Aluminum and FR4 PCB Supplier-HitechPCB For the most part, all PCB manufacturing follows the same production process regardless of where they are made. The only true differences in suppliers is the level of automation in their process, the newest technology and equipment, and having specific equipment designed to focus on certain types of end products. For aluminum PCBs, there are several key items that a PCB manufacturer needs to consider if they are going to be able to effectively produce aluminum PCBs in any quantity, including: Dedicated Imaging Equipment Many of [...]
With China-based Suzhou Dongshan Precision Manufacturing (DSBJ) looking to acquire US-based Multi-Fineline Electronix (MFLEX), a price war is likely to take place in the worldwide flexible PCB industry later in 2016, according to industry sources.
Decelerating smartphone sales growth and uncertainty about the adoption of wearable devices in the mass market, as well as volatile exchange rates, are already challenges faced by the flexible PCB industry. The acquisition of MFLEX by DSBJ will lead to more intense competition among players, and a price war could break out, the sources indicated.
