Flexible Printed Circuit Board Overview

Introduction On a slightly less romantic level, it would not be feasible to have such a standard laptop or mobile phone without flexible print circuit technology, which enables components to be linked electrically, in a dynamic, three-dimensional fashion. Flexible circuit technology has a long history that dates back over 100 years. The early patent activity emphasizes the fact that inventions such as Thomas Edison, Frank Sprague, and others in the early twentieth century experimented on ideas for flexible circuit materials and designs that were only used on a commercial basis in recent decades. Background Flexible printed circuits (FPCs) are the heart and soul ...

PCB FABRICATION SUBSTRATES

What is PCB substrate? Every home is required to have a solid foundation. A substrate is also required for every printed circuit board [1]. The actual substance that contains the traces and elements is known as the PCB Fabrication substrate. The first step in creating a high-quality PCB is selecting the correct substrate. Structure and shape are required for a PCB. It also requires a platform or canvas on which to place all of its other components. The PCB's performance is influenced by the substrate's properties. A stiff substrate, for example, can improve the PCB's strength and endurance. More design options ...

SMT Assembly Conformal Coating

Definition Conformal coating is a thin layer of protected polymeric coating applied to printed circuit boards (PCBs) and electronic components. Its goal is to provide environmental and mechanical protection for the components and circuits, allowing them to last longer and be more reliable. It maintains long-term surface insulation resistance values by being electrically insulating, ensuring the assembly's operational integrity. It also prevents corrosion by acting as a barrier to airborne pollutants from the operational environment, like salt spray. Conformal coatings are often applied in the 25-250 micron range. Parylene films, on the other hand, are applied significantly thinner and can be fractions of ...

Layouts of SMT Assembly Line

What is an SMT assembly line? SMT is a technique that is being used to manufacture assembled pcb’s. Many years ago, circuits were large and cumbersome using hard wire and large through hole components, resulting in electrical products that were large and difficult to operate and transport. Comparing to the conventional method, SMT offers the following advantages: high density, good stability, less cost, miniaturization, sound field control, and other features. For the size of the previously used through hole components to be decreased and modified to be matched with the smaller electronic component, the electronic device must become micro, such as the ...

ICT Testing VS Flying Probe Testing – PCB Assembly

[caption id="attachment_632" align="alignleft" width="300"] [1] PCB Assembly[/caption] Flying Probe testing and In-Circuit Testing (ICT) are excellent choices for testing the quality of circuit board construction. Both tests detect the expected problems before the circuit board gets into mass production and assemblage. Both tests are a fantastic way of assessing your end product. Testing of Circuit Boards: PCBs are getting progressively advanced to fulfill the technical requirements of our digital era. Automatized testing of a board before the mass manufacture permits you to find out faults before mass manufacturing. In-Circuit Testing (ICT) and Flying Probe Testing can assist you in finding out these fundamental ...
