March 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
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.
How 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
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.
