Substrate & PCB Fabrication & Assembly
Miniaturization 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.

Listings on this page are for companies that fabricate PCBs and/or provide component mounting services. Please refer to the Technical Services page for companies that provide circuit design. Substrate & PCB Design Data: Trace fusing, temperature rise, suppliers, etc.
My policy is to only list companies that actually manufacture product or offer services related to the page title subject.
Product distributors and sales representatives are not listed (they have their own page). This helps guarantee that each
listing offers a unique product or service. NOTICE: I am no longer adding hyperlinks due to so many companies asking to
