PCB Manufacturing: The Importance of Tolerances

The success of PCB manufacturing lies on the reliability and consistency of the process. To achieve this, strict tolerances must be maintained throughout the manufacturing process. In the world of PCB fabrication, tolerance refers to the amount of allowable deviation from a specified value. For example, a PCB trace width might have a tolerance of

Why are Flex Circuit Boards Taking Off in the PCB Industry?

The PCB industry has witnessed several changes over the years and one such was the transition from rigid to flexible circuit boards. For several years, engineers used to create flex circuit boards by connecting multiple small rigid boards with cables. This is because flex circuit board fabrication was a tedious process and quite expensive, too.
