Physical and Electrical Partitioning In PCB Design

Partitioning your design into physical and electrical sections can significantly reduce the number of through-holes you need in your PCB, thereby increasing production speed and cutting down on manufacturing costs. Here, we will explain what physical and electrical partitioning are how they are used in PCB design [1], and how to create effective partitioning schemes in your PCB designs. As you work on your next PCB design, you may be wondering how to implement physical and electrical partitioning in your design. These two factors are equally important to making the finished product successful, and both have a huge impact on the ...

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 ...

Identify SMT Components Polarity on a PC Board

The design of PCB and its assembly involves different components. The smart era has resulted in a compact PCB design and the components’ polarity is hard to identify now. Here, we will see how to recognize the polarity of the SMT components to avoid its reversal during production, ensure a correct PCB, and enhance the quality of engineers’ knowledge regarding the polarized components’ direction. Understand the Polarity of Components In PCB? The polarity of SMT components is the position of the SMT components’ first pin or it’s the direction of the component. In other words, when you mount a component during the ...

DFM Issues in PCB Design

You need a well-designed PCB for the effective functioning of the device, and you can have it by focusing on the DFM or Design for Manufacturing. Different requirements are there in terms of PCB design, management, and fabrication that you have to follow. At the same time, you should consider the timeline to have a circuit board within your budget. PCB and DFM Issues Having well-executed CAD tools is easy, but these tools cause certain DFM issues which need lots of effort to solve. Sometimes a PCB is correct in terms of electrical requirements, but it is hard to manufacture because you ...

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 • ...
