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.
