PCB Manufacturing Process: how are PCBs made

PCB Manufacturing Process: how are PCBs made PCB holes and vias Holes, often called via holes or vias are needed within a PCB to connect the different layers together at different points. Holes may also be needed to enable leaded components to be mounted on the PCB. Additionally some fixing holes may be needed. Normally the inner surfaces of the holes have copper layer so that they electrically connect the layers of the board. These "plated through holes" are produced using a plating process. In this way the layers of the board can be connected. Drilling is then accomplished using [...]

How to Ensure the Quality of Printed Circuit Board and PCB assembly manufacturing

PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards) are the most used and basic PCB assembly unit applied by all types of electronic devices. All functions and performance of devices are implemented mainly by PCBs. Put simply, PCBs are the heart of electronic devices and both their quality and reliability is directly correlated with quality and reliability of electronic equipment. Nowadays, intelligence and miniature of electronic devices leads to increasingly smaller size and complicated structures of PCBs. In terms of PCB performance, it can be testified that even if schematic is correctly designed, subsequent assembly and debugging will still be influenced if PCB design [...]

A Glossary Of Terms For The PCB Manufacturing Process

Your life practically runs on printed circuit boards (PCBs) and you may not have even known it. These circuit boards are in nearly all computational electronics, from smartphones to digital clocks. It works by routing electric signals through electronics, essentially telling the electricity where to go and bringing electronics to life. As the PCB manufacturing process and function of PCBS are rather complicated, there is a whole slew of relevant terms to know.   Analog Circuit: A type of circuit in which the output varies as a continuous function of the input. This is in contrast with a digital circuit, [...]

Why You Need An HDI PCB?

As long as electronic products were large, conventional printed circuit boards (PCBs), even complex PCBs, sufficed. However, with the advent of modern smartphones, wearables, and the Internet of Things (IoT), the tendency to go for thinner and smaller products is prevailing. Component manufacturers have responded positively to this trend by making their products ever smaller.   Now, increasingly, everyone wants smaller electronic products with more advanced features. PCBs have also undergone a drastic change in technology, going from thick, rigid structures to thin and flexible types. However, with no relaxation in the trend for reduction in size of products, even thin [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
