With significant technological advancements in recent years, we are heading towards a world of smart devices that are way beyond simple functional electronics. Today the question posed is how smart can we make our devices. As we enter the realm of ambient intelligence...

What are the Proper Storage guidelines of PCBs?

What are the Proper Storage guidelines of PCBs?

Proper storage of PCBs is more critical than getting a shipment of finished boards into your warehouse because there is a length of time (weeks to months) before your new PCBs are put to use. It’s critical that all boards are stored and handled properly from the time...

Plating Techniques In A PCB

Plating Techniques In A PCB

PCB Trace plating is also identified as a copper coating or surface finish. Done with the purpose of protecting PCB from oxidation and the possible deterioration of the copper layer, plating provides protection from various environmental factors. Plating protects the...

6 Ways to Improve PCBA Prototype Quality

6 Ways to Improve PCBA Prototype Quality

Quick turn prototypes suffer because by design they are fabricated quickly to prove a concept.  This translates to less time spent designing with a manufacturing mindset, less time spent designing for testing, and much less time spent under review.  Each of...
