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 ...

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 ...

Work with PNC to Reduce PC Board Costs

When it comes to reducing the manufacturing cost of a PCB, it is important to remember that a significant part of the cost of a PCB assembly [1] is already baked in at the design concept stage.  The product concept defines the PCB size and shape, while the performance of the system dictates the microprocessor, memory and other functional elements of the circuit. However, some of the assembly cost can still be affected by design choices made by the PCB designer.  A PCB that is designed for manufacturing (DFM) can reduce both the fabrication cost of the PCB and the costs ...

Embedded software development along with PCB Assembly

No company can excel at every aspect of new product development and trying to do everything can dilute an organization’s focus on the tasks that are essential to its success. For example, most companies have long ago outsourced the PCB design and fabrication steps of new product development. This same need to focus on the essential is true of software development too. It is difficult for a software company to excel at every type of software development because of the ever expanding universe of software languages, operating systems, and architectures.  A cloud based SAAS or PC based application is very ...

Minimizing Crosstalk in PC Board Layout

In this ongoing series on PCB layout from the design team at PNC, previous posts have looked at some of the initial steps to turn a circuit schematic into a manufacturable, reliable PCB. These posts have looked at  component placement [1], selecting appropriate trace widths [2], and BGA routing [3].   In this post we are going to take a deeper dive into methods for reducing crosstalk in the PCB design [4]. After the power and ground have been routed, the next task is to route high speed signal traces, and the traces that could either generate or receive crosstalk.  What is ...
