PCB FABRICATION

prototype circuit boards

Even though some information concerning circuit board prototyping has been around for a while, it can be pretty confusing to get direct answers. There is a lot of information out there, and even the most experienced of engineers can have a problem differentiating between what information is right and wrong concerning their specific prototype PCBs. Read More…

Any circuit board prototyping engineer knows the importance of a coating and finish. In general, the PCB usually has a copper coating and is crucial to the overall efficiency of the board as it protects its components from being exposed to oxygen and other elements. Certain areas on the prototype PCB may also be gold Read More…

In our previous post, we explained some common definitions that are used in the manufacturing of prototype printed circuit boards. Here we continue our list: Glass transition temperature: this is the temperature at which an amorphous polymer changes from a hard and brittle condition to a rubbery consistency. When this transition happens, many changes occur Read More…

Prototype printed circuit boards are what happen when an engineer takes some wire, copper, and plastic components and incorporates them together to create a working device. Circuit boards are found in all aspects of technology, and even though they are popular, each prototype PCB must be assembled differently. So if you are looking to create Read More…

If you’re familiar with the purpose of prototype printed circuit boards or PCB fabrication, you probably know how commonplace and necessary they are in today’s technologically dependent world. But even though printed circuit boards are found in almost every device we use on a daily basis, you might not know these four amazing facts about Read More…

PCB Fabrication

A prototype printed circuit board is an electronic circuit that can be used for a variety of reasons. A typical PCB layout consists of up to 36 layers, and the most simple prototype PCBs contain copper tracks that interconnect with each other on only one of its surfaces, known as 1 layer PCB. Considering that Read More…
