Everything you need to know about drilling PCB mounting holes

​Mounting holes seem simple enough—they let you mount your PCB to an enclosure or a surface. Simply pick a screw size that makes sense for the size of your board and the surface you wish to mount it to, and drill accordingly.

The Ten Golden Rules of PCB Design

Select the correct grid - set and always use the grid spacing that matches the most components. While multigrids seem to be a significant utility, engineers can avoid the pitfalls of spacing setups and maximize board use if they can think much more early in the PCB layout design.

PCB Assembly

There are a variety of soldering techniques used to attach components to a PCB. High volume production is usually done with a "Pick and place machine" or SMT placement machine and bulk wave soldering or reflow ovens, but skilled technicians are able to solder very tiny parts (for instance 0201 packages which are 0.02 in.

Manufacturing Flexibility in Printed Circuit BoardAssembly

​Introduction: In simplest terms, printed circuit boards can be defined as intricately designed pathways created by metallic insertions for electricity to transfer smoothly, in order to reach the components of the electronic devices. This easy movement of electric power helps the electronic devices to operate fluently without interruption.

Contrast on Soldering Technologies Used in Lead and Lead-Free Reflow Soldering

MVCs refer to the most vulnerable components (MVCs) during reflow soldering such as liquid dielectric aluminum electrolytic capacitors, connectors, DIP switches, LEDs, transformers, PCB (Printed Circuit Board) substrate material etc. Lead and lead-free components differ from each other in terms of their capability to withstand reflow soldering.

Are Acid Traps Still a Problem for PCBs in 2019

There’s an old rule of thumb circling around the PCB designer communities — avoid acute angles (<90°) in PCB design, lest you incur the wrath of the acid trap. While that may have made sense over ten years ago when thermally activated etchants were widely used in PCB fabrication, today’s manufacturing methods have greatly improved.

The domestic PCB industry is still facing severe challenges in 2019

According to Prismark Q4, the total global PCB output value reached US$62.396 billion in 2018, up 6% from 2017. The global PCB output value is expected to reach US$63.727 billion in 2019, up 2.1% year-on-year; the global PCB output is expected to reach 2023.

Flexible Printed Circuit Boards

From cell phones to instrument panels, computer keyboards to GPS trackers, flexible printed circuit boards help run the electronics that make our lives better. The versatility of flexible printed circuit boards (PCBs) makes them ideal for numerous applications where flexibility, space limitations, or production constraints do not permit the use of rigid PCBs. Printed circuit board manufacturers can configure circuitry to fit the device, rather than being restricted by the circuit board to a part


​Screen printing is a printing technique whereby a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the substrate momentarily along a line of contact.

PCB price increase

Today, let's talk about the underlying causes behind these price increases and prices manufacturers are helpless. The past two years, domestic and global lithium industry and new energy automotive industry hot, triggering a shortage of raw materials foil! Rare price was expensive, copper prices began to rise.
