Guide to PCB Issues

Jump To: Plating Voids | Insufficient Copper-to-Edge Clearance | Slivers | Missing Solder Mask Between Pads | Acid Traps | Starved Thermals | Electromagnetic Issues  | Not Using a DFM | Burned Circuit Boards | Age | Chemical Leakage  Request a Free Quote  Guide to PCB Issues Printed circuit boards (PCB) are essential components of many electrical devices today, connecting different components to one another through a complex array of circuits. Global demand for PCBs has risen rapidly — over the past eight years, total global sales of printed circuit boards have increased by an average of over $3.7 billion per year. Worldwide sales of PCBs stood at about $82 billion as of 2018. The complexity of the PCB designing and manufacturing processes means there are numerous opportunities for PCB failure issues to arise. Some of these failures are a result of design oversights, such as insufficient clearances or incorrect measurements, which can negatively affect the functionality of the finished product. Others may result from problems in the manufacturing process,

Small Circuit Boards – How small can a PCB be?

small circuit boards

Small Circuit Boards – How Small can a PCB be? As technology advances, our gadgets get smaller. And as they get smaller, they require small circuit boards to work. There is no such thing as a standard printed circuit board. Each board is made for a specific item. That means that the board has been designed to perform a particular function inside an allotted space. MCL engineers have been providing small PCBs for a variety of industries and needs for more than 10 years, offering competitive pricing and multiple domestic and offshore manufacturing options. We specialized in services that design for manufacturability, especially in the realm of your small printed circuit boards. PCBs all have highly defined requirements, and our expert engineering and manufacturing team can turn your concept into reality or test an existing prototype to make sure it meets all tolerance needs. If something is out of spec,

Circuit Boards on Planes

pcb Assembly

Printed Circuit Boards for Planes/Aerospace and Military Applications Ever seen a PCB (printed circuit board) of a radio or computer, the one with interconnected electronic components? No? Well, it is a board that contains pads and lines that electrically interconnect in various points together, or rather connect components and connectors to each other. Circuit boards allow signals and power to be channeled through physical devices easily. With the help of solder, components on the surface of a PCB are electronically interconnected. Solder is a metal, which aptly serves as a strong adhesive on the components. You can find PCBs in devices such as sophisticated radars, pagers, beepers, and even computer software. Because of their different uses, PCBs come in different designs, shapes and sizes. Printed circuit boards for planes, for instance, have more sophisticated designs that are invented to comply with the ever-growing functionalities of airplanes. Designing PCBs for aviation
