Black PCB board is More High-end? I don’t know when the black PCB became a representative of high-end electronics in the minds of many people. But that’s true today many major manufacturers have adopted black PCB in motherboard design, such as Apple, Asus, MSI and so on. Some PCB manufacturers also… Read More »Is That True Black PCB board Means High-end Product?
Handing over the SMT manufacturing to the professional assembly house doesn’t mean there is nothing to do with you, electronics manufacturing is a very specific work, we will ask the clients to provide the necessary data before delegating the SMT manufacturing work to us. There are certainly many things… Read More »Precautions Before Placing SMT Manufacturing Order
Professional SMT soldering is a complex process involving multiple processing steps, a few engineers might be able to solder SMD components by themselves, but I will tell you guys why it should only be handled by qualified professionals. Firstly, What is SMT Soldering? When soldering components… Read More »Hand over SMT Soldering Work to Professionals
What is PCB Solder Mask (S/M)? Solder mask located on the top layer and bottom layer copper foil of the circuit boards. It is used to protect the copper foil from being oxidized and polluted to affect the function of the PCBs. Solder mask generally uses… Read More »How to Choose PCB Solder Mask Color?
What is Wave Soldering Process? Wave soldering processing is a method to assemble electronics components onto printed circuit boards. The board passes through a pot of molten solder via an inclined conveyor belt, in the oven, the pump produces standing waves of molten solder. When the PCB board is… Read More »How to Go with Wave Soldering Process?
What is The Use of PCB Stencil? We’ve already introduced PCB stencil in the previous article, which is used in solder paste printing. Obviously, PCB stencil must work together with solder paste, and usually an automatic machine in an SMT assembly line, which sometimes can be a brush if… Read More »Knowing PCB Stencil’s Role and Available Options
In the previous article, we talked about some of the considerations for PCB panelization, this article will cover the currently widely used PCB penalization method. Why PCB Penalizations? PCB panelization refers to a technology in which some unit circuit boards are connected together in a certain way… Read More »What Are the PCB Panelization Methods?
What is Through-Hole Technology? Through-hole technology or through-hole assembly, means a method to assemble the electronic components to the PCB board. Comes to through-hole technology, the components’ pins are plugged into the through-holes from the topside of a PCB board, then get soldered onto the pads on… Read More »What is Through-Hole Technology?
Gerber file is the standard format for PCB manufacturing, the common extension is .gbr. The designers can output the .gbr files from various software, such as Altium Designer, Allegro SPB, Orcad, Kicad, Eagle, and so on. In which, Allegro and Orcad belong to the same company Cadence, who is one of the leaders… Read More »Generate Gerber File from Cadence Software
Generally, PCB boards are divided into are single-side, double-side, and multi-layer. Multilayer printed circuit boards are not limited by the layer-count, now they say the number of layers of the multilayer printed circuit boards can reach 100+ layers, in which however 4-layer boards, 6-layer boards, and 8-layers boards are the most… Read More »Why Always Using Even Layers Multilayer Printed Circuit Boards?
