Update of “Shared Projects” System

Some critical updates of PCBWay’s Community have been completed recently. One of them is on “Shared Projects” System. We have added a “Weekly Selection” function on the basis of the original one.1. Introduction:During the selection period, one week, all newly shared projects become the nominees and compete for “Project of the Week”. As you can see, the winner will be list on the homepage of PCBWay’s community. Besides, the banner is 1900*700 pixel and we think it is a great way to value the exce...

What is High Frequency PCB

What is High Frequency (HF) PCB?Electronic devices with high frequency is the developing tendency nowadays, especially in wireless network. Satellite communication growing rapidly, information products move towards high speed and high frequency. Thus developing new products always need to use high frequency substrate, satellite system, mobile telephone receiving base station and so on, these communication products must use high frequency PCB. The features of high frequency PCB. 1. DK should be s...

High Tg PCB

What is FR-4? FR-4 is a grade for flame-retardant fiberglass reinforced epoxy material. Therefore, FR-4 PCB offers higher level of heat resistance than standard PCB. The FR-4 board is divided into Three classification, determined by the number of copper trace layers:1. Single layer PCB2. Two layer PCB3. Multilayer PCBHigh TG PCB SpecificationsThe “Tg” means the glass transition temperature of PCB, it indicates the point at which the PCB material will begin to transition (check this post...

The depth and width of the v-cuts/grooves

Typically the depth of the v-cut is 3/4 of the thickness of the board. So if you want to do v-cuts we recommend the center of the v-cut line to any traces. Please bear this in mind when designing your panels.V-Cut machine

Flexible PCB

Flexible circuits (also variously referred to around the globe as flex circuits, flexible printed circuit boards, flex print, flexi-circuits) are members of electronic and interconnection family. They consist of a thin insulating polymer film having conductive circuit patterns affixed thereto and typically supplied with a thin polymer coating to protect the conductor circuits. The technology has been used for interconnecting electronic devices since the 1950s in one form or another. It is now on...

General introduction of Aluminum PCB

Among all Metal core PCBs,Aluminum PCBs is the most common type - the base material consists of aluminum core with standard FR4. It features a thermal clad layer that dissipates heat in a highly efficient manner, while cooling components and increasing the overall performance of the products. Currently, Aluminum Backed PCBs is regarded as the solution to high power and tight tolerance applications. Advantages of Aluminum PCB 1.Environmentally Friendly: Aluminum is non-toxic and recyclable. Manuf...

Impedance Control of PCB

As circuit design becomes increasingly complex and high-speed, how to ensure the integrity of various signals (especially high-speed signals), that is, to ensure signal quality, has becomes a problem.At this point, will take advantage of transmission line theory to analyze. Control signal characteristic impedance matching becomes the key point. Non-strict impedance control will cause considerable signal reflections and signal distortions, leading to design failures. Common signals such as PCI bu...

What is Automated optical inspection(AOI)

Automated optical inspection (AOI) is an automated visual inspection of printed circuit board manufacture where a camera autonomously scans the device under test for both catastrophic failure (such as missing component) and quality defects.It is commonly used in the manufacturing process because it is a non-contact test method. This guarantees the high reliability of Multi-CB multilayer circuit boards.It is especially important for the following application areas:l Line width violationsl Spaci...

What is HDI PCB

High density interconnect (HDI) PCB, represent one of the fastest growing technologies in PCBs. Because of its higher circuitry density than traditional circuit boards, the HDI PCB design is able to incorporate smaller vias and capture pads, and higher connection pad densities. HDI Boards contain blind and buried vias and often contain micro vias of 0.006 or less in diameter. By using HDI technology, designers now have the ability to place more components on both sides of the raw PCB if desired....
