How to Choose PCB Assembly Material?

Different materials are there in the market to make printed circuit boards. The basic purpose of a PCB is to provide electricity to run electronics, besides, it helps insulate the copper layers. Though some PCB assembly materials are common like FR4, and Teflon, the nature and type of a PCB determines a suitable material for it. When choosing a material for circuit boards, you have to see their properties in terms of thermal, chemical, electrical, and mechanical properties. Let’s study these properties in detail and material types. There are six basic components of the standard PCB board and these are: • Prepreg • ...

Basic PC Board Rules for Successful IoT Design

The world is becoming smart each day due to IoT, or the Internet of Things. Your life becomes easier when you connect every device to the internet or Wi-Fi. These days there are many smart homes and products which will stay there in the future. The IoT design is a specific area of electronics design that has boosted the PCB industry. However, the development of a revolutionary design is not so simple even though the IoT devices are smart and seem simple, it is not so. You need a well-designed PCB for such a device. The PCB should have specific components ...

Why printed circuit board manufacturers use plated slots ?

Printed Circuit Board Plated Slots Slots are holes, which are either plated or non- plated-through. So, plated slots are holes plated in copper. And we use them for electrical connections on the PCB. A through slot is the one that goes to the entire depth of the board, starting from one end to another. Whereas a PCB outline or edge also has plating called side plating. printed circuit board manufacturers use plated slots for components packaging, however, non-plated slots are also in practice. But, PCB with multiple layers have only plated-through slots. Why Prefer Plated Slots? PCB assembly [1]involves different designs and components, ...

PC Board Fabrication, V-Scoring-Purpose and Benefits

PCB or a printed circuit board [1] has different holes, cuts, and elements, and V-scoring is one of them. V-scoring pre separates the PCB and designers also call it V-groove because a groove resembling V is cut on the circuit board’s top and bottom. Generally, the depth of the groove is 1/3 of the board depth and there is a thin layer between two Vs for the board processing. The boards with V-grooves are either end to end or side by side with adjacent edges. The groove helps break boards with a little force, and you can divide a single panel ...

How To Choose High-Frequency PC Board Materials For Your RF Microwave Project?

The high-frequency PCB material is based on using a synthetic thermoplastic fluoropolymer which has an excellent dielectric property at different smaller microwave frequencies. For the design of PCB circuits with microwave frequencies, important characterizations that determine laminate circuit performance include dielectric constant (DK), dissipation factor (Df), thermal expansion coefficient (CTE), thermal dielectric constant coefficient (TCDk), and thermal conductivity. The most known high-frequency material for users of PCB laminates may be polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), a synthetic thermoplastic fluoropolymer with outstanding dielectric characteristics at microwave frequencies. PCB applications include RF antenna, WiFi (Carrier-Green and Licensed Access), IP infrastructure, power amplifiers, diplexers/multiplexers, testing, measurement, etc. It ...
