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 ...

PCB Design, Planning, and Components Selection in Printed Circuit Boards

Designing a printed circuit board or PCB can become challenging because there are many factors to consider, including environmental conditions the PCB will be exposed to and the desired electrical components that the PCB will use. The best design, planning, and component selection bring the best-printed circuit boards. All electronic products contain printed circuit boards so considering the above elements is essential that we will discuss these elements in this article. Questions Regarding PCB Planning? A few questions to keep in mind when designing and planning a PCB include: How many layers do I want? What thickness of copper foil/laminate do I ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
