What is a Halogen-Free PCB?

WHAT IS A HALOGEN-FREE PCB? As the name suggests, PCBs free of halogens are halogen-free PCBs. Here halogen refers to chlorine, fluorine, iodine, astatine, and bromine. Halogens are very harmful to life. To generate a halogen-free PCB, you always need a halogen-free lamination of copper clad. Halogen in PCBs Halogens are not a substance or […]

What is FR4 PCB material?

FR4 is the commonly used material in PCB manufacturing. It’s a versatile material and has a balance between cost and performance. That is the reason why FR4 material is widely applied in single-sided, double-sided, and multi-layered boards. In this article, you will find out more about: What does FR-4 Stand for? Beneficial Properties of FR-4 […]

What is the Standard PCB Thickness?

When it comes to PCB manufacturing, choosing the correct PCB thickness is essential as your components will be inserted into multiple electronic devices. These may not be compatible with custom PCBs from heterogenous batches. So let’s review the standard thicknesses, factors that impact this measure, and how to determine its value required correctly. WHAT IS […]

What is Solder Mask Layer in PCB Manufacturing?

Do you need your PCBs to function well? Of course, you do! That’s why you want to know more about solder masks – essential layers of PCBs. Soldering mask is a complex process that requires a complete understanding of the processes, materials, and pre and post-procedures. Without such knowledge – fabricating PCBs and any other […]

Discussion on Electroless Nickel Gold Technology

Electroless nickel-gold plating integrates the functions of soldering, contact conduction, wire bonding, and heat dissipation. There is currently no other process that can compete with it. However, this process has been difficult to do for a long time, and the problem often occurs and it is not easy to rework. The solution of the problem […]

What is Turnkey PCB Manufacturing and Assembly?

I’ve worked with small hardware startups and large defense companies, and one thing they tend to need is to help to navigate the electronics supply chain and manufacturing landscape. If you’re not involved in the industry, PCB manufacturing services can seem opaque and difficult to navigate, just like many other specialized services. Therefore, it’s often […]

Ingenious skills of PCB board layout and processing of process defects

As PCB board size requirements are getting smaller and smaller, the device density requirements are getting higher and higher, and the PCB board design is becoming more and more difficult. How to achieve a high routing rate of the PCB board and shorten the design time, let’s talk about the design skills of PCB board planning, layout […]

Why FR4 Material is Commonly used in PCB Fabrication?

FR4 material is the most common grade dielectric material that is used in the fabrication of circuit boards. This material is incorporated in single-sided, double-sided, and multi-layered boards. Here are a few qualities of FR4 materials that make them popular: Wide range of operating temperatures (50°C to 115°C) Higher Tg value (about 180°C) Offers decent mechanical […]

Introduction of Nickel Electroplating Process for Printed Circuit Board

1. Function And Characteristics Nickel plating is used as the substrate coating for precious metals and base metals on PCB (the abbreviation of Printed Circuit Board). It is also commonly used as a surface layer for some single-sided printed boards. For some surfaces that are heavily worn, such as switch contacts, contacts, or plug gold, using […]

Basic Process And Skills of PCB Processing

1. Preliminary Work of Circuit Board Design in PCB processing 1.1 Use the schematic design tool to draw the schematic diagram and generate the corresponding network table. While in some special cases, such as the circuit board is relatively simple, and the network tabl   e is already available, it is not necessary to design the […]
