PCB Manufacture Step by Step

The board designer has prepared his layout on a Computer Aided Design or CAD system. Each CAD system uses its own internal data format, so the PCB industry has developed a standard output format to transfer the layout data to the manufacturer. This is Extended Gerber or RS274X. The Gerber files define the copper tracking layers (4 in the job we are following) as well as the soldermasks and component notations. First we check that data meets our manufacturing requirements. These checks are mos...

PCB and Tech Trends for 2014

With the New Year finally here it is time to take a look at the tech industry as a whole and start to project what the biggest trends will be in 2014. As we saw at the end of 2013, consumer electronics will undoubtedly continue to grow in terms of power and functionality. As such, printed circuit boards and PCB manufacturers are expanding their capabilities to give the world technology it has never seen before. Consumers in 2014 can expect larger tablets to be announced and higher resolutions co...

Identifying the Source of PCB Corrosion

Being able to determine the cause of corrosion on a printed circuit board assembly will allow you to be able to both clean up the corrosion and prevent further issues from arising. Contamination can be caused from a variety of sources, including packaging, installation, the environment and the application itself. There are a number of steps that you can take to find the culprit on your PCB and remove it. A scanning electron microscope (SEM) can help determine the elemental composition of the cor...

Easy PCB Manufacture

A printed circuit board (pcb) mechanically supports and electrically connects electronic components using conductive tracks, pads and other features etched from copper sheets laminated onto a non-conductive substrate. pcb's can be single sided (one copper layer), double sided (two copper layers) or multi-layer. Conductor on different layers are connected with plated-through holes called vias. Advanced PCB's may contain components - capacitors, resistors or active devices - embedded in the substr...

Specifications for a RoHS PCB

Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) are standards instituted in July 2006 for printed circuit boards (PCB) and their components being manufactured for distribution within the European Union. The standards are designed to reduce environmental effects by substances used in the manufacture of PCBs and some other products. Certain substances are restricted. Industries that are affected include information technology, telecommunications, toys, medical devices, electrical and electronic tools, ...

How to Learn the PCB Manufacturing Process

printed circuit boards (PCB) are used to manufacture business machines and computers, communication devices and home entertainment systems, according to the International Network for Environmental Compliance and Enforcement (INECE). PCB are essentially circuitry created from boards with electronic components adhered to them. Single-sided, double-sided and multi-layered are the three basic types of printed circuit boards manufactured and the technology is produced on a variety of custom and flexi...

PCB Manufacturing Methods

The manufacture of printed circuit boards involves both the addition and removal of materials. A non-conductive material is used as the backing of the board. The board is coated with a conductive material such as copper, aluminum or nickel. circuit boards are generally divided into three types; multi-layered, single-sided or double-sided. The type used will be determined by density and spatial requirements and complexity of the circuits. Drilling and Scrubbing the BoardAfter plating the backing...

PCB Material Types

PCBs, or Polychlorinated Biphenyls, are man-made chemicals. Their use is strictly controlled or banned in many countries because they pose a threat to both human health and the environment. Polution from various types of PCB materials is a major problem around the world because the chemicals are persistent organic pollutants, meaning that although PCB manufacture is mostly banned across the world, their previous use is still having an environmental impact today. What Are PCBs?There are more th...

PCB layout

A printed circuit board, or PCB, is used to mechanically support and electrically connect electronic components. An Austrian scientist, Dr Paul Eisler, is credited with making the first operational printed wiring board in 1943, where the printed circuits replaced the bulky wiring in a vacuum tube radio. The PCB is designed and formed as a stack of layers. In the early days of printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing, the board was simply an insulating core layer, clad with a thin layer of copp...

3 Basics Of PCB Inspection

In the early days of PCB manufacture, or the manufacture of any electronics equipment PCB, all inspection was undertaken manually. This was the best option, but was recognised as having only limited value. The repetitive nature of the process meant that many faults were not spotted and passed on into the next stage of production undetected PCB. There are various methods by which PCB inspection can be achieved: Manual PCB inspection : As the name implies, manual inspection involves individual...
