San Francisco Circuits PCB School - RF CafeMarch 22, 2022 - San Mateo, CA - San Francisco Circuits (SFC) has for a while been posting a series of short lessons in its "PCB School" feature, highlighting PCB fabrication and assembly for high-tech industries. Topics include "PCB Dimensional & Thermal Stability," "How Do You Manage Copper Pads, Copper Traces, & Planes in High-Load Applications?, "Serpentine Routing–Function over Form in PCB Routing," "The Past, Present, & Future of Microelectronics & PCB Production," "PCB Layout: Basics, Optimizations & Effectiveness," "The Importance of PCB Trace Widths in PCB Design" and many more.

PCB Dimensional & Thermal Stability - RF CafePCB Dimensional & Thermal Stability

There are a number of factors to consider with the mechanical aspects of a PCB. In this article, we are going to dive into the various ways a PCB designer can help to deliver a board meeting mechanical and thermal requirements while staying competitive on cost. Unnecessarily tight constraints on the board will be a cost driver. Meanwhile, an insufficient set of physical parameters leaves the potential for a board that does not meet the necessary requirements in the field. One's goal is to find the sweet spot between precision and price. Believe it or not, that is possible to do.

Manage Copper Pads, Copper Traces, & Planes in High-Load Applications - RF CafeHow Do You Manage Copper Pads, Copper Traces, & Planes in High-Load Applications?

At what point is a load considered high voltage or high current, and what does that mean for the PCB design process? There are several factors that must be considered when specifying components and laying out a PCB for these kinds of conditions. Here's what you need to know to properly manage copper pads, copper traces, an copper planes.

 

Serpentine Routing–Function over Form in PCB Routing - RF CafeSerpentine Routing–Function over Form in PCB Routing

Is Serpentine Routing a good choice for your next PCB project? Signal integrity is very important in digital and analog systems. The routing of your PCB plays an important role in helping to increase performance by keeping signals in sync. A few minor disasters in your routing can lead to a major disaster. Learn more about why serpentine routing may be the right choice for you.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
