Importance of Good ESD Practices in SMT Assembly

The management of electrostatic discharge is a crucial feature in the production, assembly, and maintenance of electronic equipment. If electrostatic discharges are not managed, they may destroy an electrical device at any step of its manufacture or use. Grounding any wires that come into touch with or are close to the electrical equipment is the main way of control. Humans, tools, ESD mats, various electronic equipment, boards, connections, packing, and other conductors are among them. Removal of extra insulators, shielding, ionization, pollution regulations, training, awareness, and highest level compliance are all part of a successful ESD management program. What exactly is ...

3D Automatic Optical Inspection (AOI) for PCB Assembly Introduction

The highest demand used in quality management of electronic printed circuit boards (PCBs) and PCB assembly [1] is automatic optical inspections and automated optical inspections (in short, AOI) (PCBA). AOI inspects the electronic assemblies such as PCBs mechanical visual inspection to ensure that the components of PCBs are in the right place and the contacts are correct. Automated optical inspection (AOI) is an intelligent visual inspection of the production of the printed circuit board, where all catastrophic failures (such as broken components) and quality faults can be scanned automatically by a sensor. It is widely used in the production phase because it ...

Main aspects of the PCB industry – PCB Design, Manufacturing & Assembling

In this article, you'll get to know the fundamentals of PCB manufacturers and how our company "PNC [1] Inc." is unique from other manufacturers in the United States. What are the three main aspects of the PCB industry? According to our experience of more than 50 years as the leading PCB Company in the industry, we can easily write that three main aspects in the PCB industry for which most clients look for are: • PCB Design [2] • PCB Manufacturing [3] • PCB Assembly [4] Design, Manufacturing, and assembling of PCB is a systematic method for examining the parts and components which is needed to ...

PCB assembly Pre-Reflow FAI

First article inspection (FAI) prior to SMT assembly [1] is a design verification methodology that provides a reported verification and validation of details of a product on the shopfloor per its manufacturing procedure and requirements. There are various ways to perform FAI, from both supplier’s and customer’s side, making it a very dynamic process. This means that each organization can tailor its FAI method to benefit itself and consequently, its customer, yet maintain rigid performance standards at the same time. FAI involves qualitative and quantitative measurement. FAI is also highly effective since it can potentially fulfill process validation requirements of ...

CONFORMAL COATING

What is Conformal Coating? Conformal coating is protective chemical material coating applied after the final SMT PCB assembly [1] or through-hole assembly process. Coatings are comprised of 5 different types, Acrylic, Epoxy, Urethane, Silicone and Parylene resins. Applying the coatings to a PCB board assembly [2]can be done by hand spray, robotic spray, brush or dipping. The coating acts as an additional dielectric layer that provides protection due to environmental and mechanical stresses, such as thermal extremes, chemicals, dust, salt fog, abrasions, and moisture. In a PCB assembly [3] that has close spacing of conductive pathways or close ...
