One of the most important calculations in high current applications is the cross-sectional area of a trace. IPC 2152 shows (conservative) cross-sectional areas needed for particular amperages, but designers are left alone to calculate the area of a trapezoidal trace. Sure, the area of a trapezoid is h*(b1+b2)/2, h is obviously copper weight (in mils!) and b1 is obviously the trace width, but what is b2? Your PCB manufacturer’s sales and planning departments will know how much smaller the top of the trace is than the bottom, so be sure to ask them. Note that the difference varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.
In the printed circuit boards (PCBs), fire retardant 4 (FR4) material is one of the most widely used materials in the assembly and fabrication of PCB.
Some factors influence the cost of manufacturing a PCB which eventually affects the values of PCB online quote. This, we know because of our commitment to serving our host of customers all over the world with the best products per time.
The printed circuit boards (PCB) are one of the components used to build many electronic devices for some years now.
These are a popular type of metal core printed boards (MCPCBs) popular in modern application use. Due to its copper-clad laminates and metal-based components, it makes a great conductor and also an excellent insulator.
Heavy copper printed circuit boards are specially designed wiring systems where the inside and outside layers are made with 3 oz of copper or more.
The printed circuit board (PCB) industry is a very dynamic one with lots of competition in the marketplace.
When considering the enormous impacts of PCB to the automobile industry, it will be safe to say that “only birds of the same feathers flock together.”
The advent of double-sided PCB has gradually filled up the void created by the growing demand for the processing of sophisticated electronics
The world of electronics and other electrical appliances keeps evolving with new inventions added to the shelves just as the clock ticks
Printed circuit boards (PCB) connector remains one of the most widely used components for various electronics. Although they come in a very compact size, PCB connectors are very complex components of electrical devices, and they come in various types
There is no such thing as a standard printed circuit board as each PCB has a single function for a particular product. Producing a PCB is a complex multi-step process. Here, we look at the most important steps in producing a multilayer PCB.
