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 [...]

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 [...]

PCB assembly Defect Coverage Using Automated Optical Inspection (AOI)

PCB assembly Defect Coverage Using Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) Automated Optical Inspection (AOI), which is an automated visual inspection of a Printed Circuit Board (PCB), provides 100% visible component and solder-joint inspection. This testing method has been in use in PCB manufacturing for almost two decades. It plays a critical role in ensuring that there are no random faults in the assembly. The technique, which uses lighting, cameras, and vision computers, is incorporated in the assembly process to guarantee the highest possible quality throughout each phase of a product’s life cycle. The method enables fast and accurate inspection and can [...]

The benefits of heavy copper PCB fabrication and PCB assembly process

Heavy copper PCB means the foil thickness of the Printed Circuit Board greater than 3 oz (100 microns or four mils) typically. It is usually used for high electric current supply or some power circuits that are used in the automotive business. It can also be designed in the outer layer or inner layer. The thickness of heavy copper can also vary depending on the manufacturer, but they offer the same purpose. You should always use the best heavy copper PCB with the right thickness because a poor PCB cannot pass the heavy current. So, using a poor quality PCB [...]

Flexible PCB Design – PCB Manufacturing – PCB Assembly

Flexible PCB  , Flexible Circuit  or Flex PCB assembly, is designed as a replacement for traditional wire harnesses, Is soft PCB board  compared with Rigid PCB assembly process. Flexible PCB can be manufactured as single-sided, double-sided or multilayer plated through printed circuit boards. This allows the complete wiring of compact devices and systems with the advantage that no additional cables or plug connectors will be required. Flex designs pose unique challenges for most PCB tools because traditional object checks don’t account for Flex check nuances. They present a new set of objects that are best accounted for during the design [...]
