Substrate & PCB Fabrication & Assembly
of components and increasing of signal speeds on all kinds of circuits has been governed as much by the ability
of reliable printed circuit board (PCB) fabrication and manufacturing technology as it has been by the ability to
produce the small components. Accuracy of layer registration, controlling substrate layer thicknesses for impedance,
constructing dependable buried vias, and generating solder masks that guarantee components will self-align without
allowing solder bridging or component tombstoning have all been significant challenges.
Simple circuits can still be handled with decades old layout and construction techniques, but if you are beyond
that level, then some serious learning needs to be done for adopting best practices that will help assure first-pass
success. These resources will help you get there with a minimum of pain. In many cases, PCB companies can turn your
schematics into a finished PCB, and often can carry it into production. Please consider RF Cafe advertisers first
when investigating services.
