Gerber File Extention from Different Software

Gerber files are files that all circuit design software can produce. They are also called stencil data in the electronic assembly industry, and light painting files in the PCB manufacturing industry. It can be said that Gerber files are the most common and most widely used file formats in the electronics assembly industry. Therefore, for an electronics manufacturing company, it is very important to have a computer-aided manufacturing CAM software that can handle Gerber files. It has the effect o...

How to deal with the theoretical conflicts on wiring ?

1). Basically, it is correct to divide the modulus / division. It is important to note that the signal trace should not cross the moat, and do not let the return current path of the power supply and signal become too large.2). The crystal is a simulated positive feedback oscillator circuit with a stable oscillation signal that must meet the specifications of the loop gain and phase, and the oscillation specification of the analog signal is susceptible to interference, even if the ground guard tr...

How to avoid high frequency interference?

The basic idea to avoid high-frequency interference is to minimize the interference of the high-frequency signal electromagnetic field, that is, the so-called Crosstalk. You can increase the distance between the high-speed signal and the analog signal, or add ground guard / shunt traces next to the analog signal to avoid high-frequency interference. Also, don't foget to pay attention to the digital ground to the analog ground noise interference.A multi-layer printed circuit board is construc...

How to choose the material of PCB ?

The choice of PCB material must meet the design requirements, the quality of production and cost need to achieve a balance. The design requirements include electrical and institutional parts. This material problem is usually important when designing very high speed PCB boards (frequencies greater than GHz). For example, the commonly used FR-4 material may not be used when dielectric loss at several GHz frequencies, which can have a significant effect on signal attenuation . In the case of electr...

3 STEPS to determine / calculate number of PCB layers

STEP 1: Choose initial number of layers1 or 2 Layer PCBs – Home prototypingUse 1 or 2 Layer PCB only for very simple boards, breakouts or for some circuits which you are making at home. Don’t use 1 or 2 layer PCBs for interfaces with controlled impedance (USB, Ethernet, LVDS, …). In this case, use at least 4 layer PCB.4 Layer PCB – Simple or cheap boards & breakoutsIf possible, always use at least 4 layer PCB. There is not much difference in cost between 2 and 4 layer PCBs, but 4 layer PCB i...
