Stencils for SMT Assembly

A stencil mask is used in many manufacturing processes to make PCBs. This includes SMT stencils which are most commonly used in the process of making printed circuit boards. The use of these SMT assembly [1] varies based on the size and complexity of the board that they will be used on and the type of assembly machine that will be using them. For any SMT stencil application, solder paste should be used for paste dispensing. Advantages of using a stencil method are high yield rate, high accuracy, and repeatability, low labor cost, and good surface finish. The main disadvantage is ...

Printed Circuit Board Routing Practices after Auto Routing

In electronic design, PCB routing is the positioning of conductive pathways on a printed circuit board before final soldering and interconnection. The purpose of PCB routing is to have an arrangement where signal traces connect electrically to components and other signal traces while avoiding the signal crosstalk and maintaining short electrical paths between the components. You can have a manual PCB through computer-aided design software or the use of specialized routing hardware, such as manually controlled routers or auto-routers. How To Reset Your Board After Auto Routing If you’ve used an auto-router, but you’re not happy with its results, you can fix it ...

5 PCB Design Elements for Digital Transformation

Digital transformation means many things to many people, but regardless of who you are or what you do, it’s important to have an understanding of the overall impact it has had on PCB design and manufacturing. In the past five years, our industry has seen the emergence of an entirely new manufacturing process that leverages advanced semiconductor technology and equipment to produce end products in remarkably faster and more efficient ways than ever before. PCB design goes far beyond simply ensuring that the PCB has all of the right elements on it, it’s an extremely critical factor in whether or not ...

PC Board Debugging & Troubleshoot Guidelines

Engineers have to test the PCB thoroughly to see if it’s functional and fulfills its purpose of design. But, some manufacturers don’t do it which leads to intermittent issues or PCB failure, and such issues are hard to deal with while debugging. Whereas it becomes a disaster if a PCB fails in the field. You can avoid PCB issues by testing it thoroughly, besides it should be built by a good manufacturer. First, you should know the basic troubleshooting methods, so let’s begin. Basic PCB Troubleshooting and Debugging PCB of a printed circuit board has copper traces and insulators to connect heavy ...

Possible Problems & Solutions in a PCB Design Process

Whatever electronic and digital device you have, it depends on a printed circuit board for signals transmission to help it operate. These devices need a well-designed structure and manufacturing, but you have to encounter many issues in this case that we will discuss here. Any issue in the design of a PCB would cause delays in its manufacturing, so you must know how to avoid them. Similarly, some problems happen before the design that designers can avoid through proper strategies. PCB Issues before Its Design The designer should consider certain steps for a successful design, such as project management and its timeline. You ...
