PCB punching 10 common mistakes and solutions

With the increase in the quality of electronic assembly technology and the competitive needs of the market, fully automatic inserters are rapidly gaining popularity. This has led to increasing demands on the quality of punching of single-sided PCB paper-based boards (a few single- and double-sided non-metallized hole epoxy-glass cloth substrates also use punching). This article…

Analysis of high-speed backplane design considerations and innovative solutions

High-speed backplane designers face several key challenges such as signal attenuation, inter-symbol interference (ISI), and crosstalk. Products on chip with innovative signal conditioning techniques, such as high-speed backplane interface solutions, can effectively address these system-level challenges, enabling system vendors to provide their customers with high-performance and scalable systems with reduced development time and cost. High-speed…

Design guidelines for mixed-signal boards

Analog circuits rely on continuously varying currents and voltages for their operation. The operation of a digital circuit depends on the detection of a high or low level at the receiver according to a predefined voltage level or threshold, which is equivalent to determining whether the logic state is “true” or “false”. In the digital…

In-depth interpretation of the ten directions of PCB intelligent manufacturing

Smart manufacturing is to realize the intelligence and innovation of the whole manufacturing value chain, and is a further enhancement of the deep integration of informationization and industrialization. At present, the “intelligence” of smart manufacturing is still at the level of Smart. The smart manufacturing system has the ability of data collection, data processing and…

Rigid and soft combination board

Flexible and rigid boards consist of a combination of rigid and flexible boards that are permanently connected to each other. The primary application of rigid-flexible circuit boards offers the best solution in limited space conditions. The technology offers the possibility to safely connect device components while ensuring polarity and contact stability, and reduces the number…
