How to store PCBs?

When PCBs are shipped in vacuum packaging through final product inspection, for bulk PCBs, the typical PCB manufacturer will make more inventory or prepare more spare parts for the customer. Once each order is ready, the vacuum packaging will be stored. Waiting for shipment. So why vacuum pack PCB boards? How are they stored after…

PCB Design – Flow

PCB design starts at the conceptual stage, with early consideration of these factors through schematic capture and finally PCB design. Starting later in the design cycle usually involves more complex and expensive designs (the cost of which will grow exponentially over time), sometimes even delaying the board’s lead time. Even with complex and expensive filtering…

What is the difference between rigid-flexible circuit boards and other PCB boards?

Rigid-flex PCBs offer incredible flexibility in board design and play a critical role in the production of complex circuits. Circuits made from a combination of rigid and flexible components allow designers to achieve complex functionality. Rigid-flexible PCB design has led to a major technological breakthrough. These boards are developed in a 3D environment where developers…

What is a multilayer circuit board?

The increased concentration of IC packages leads to higher concentration of interconnects, which requires the use of multiple substrates. Unpredictable design issues such as noise, stray capacitance, crosstalk, etc. can occur in the layout of printed circuit boards. Therefore, printed circuit board design must focus on minimizing signal line length and avoiding parallel paths. Obviously,…

Different structures of PCB boards

PCBs are made by handling a variety of complex process lines and different types of components. PCBs are also very complex, including single-layer, double-layer, and even multi-layer structures. Production methods will vary at different levels. To date, many types of circuit boards have been developed. Printed circuit boards can also be classified according to their…
