PCB Repair: Common Breaks and How to Fix Them

For PCB repair functions, given a large enough production lot or a long field life, a board will inevitably need maintenance. Rework before field usage is also critical, and some amount during manufacturing is always expected. In either case, technicians should be also to identify some of the common modes of failure for PCBs to

Printed Circuit Board: IPC Class Definitions for Class 1, 2 & 3 Electronics

In electronics manufacturing, printed circuit boards are separated into three categories: 1, 2 and 3. The categories reflect the level of quality of each circuit board type, from lowest (Class 1 standards) to highest (Class 3 standards). This classification system was developed and is monitored by IPC under the IPC-6011 standard. Perhaps the major difference

What is Trace Width in PCB Layout?

In the layout of printed circuit boards, width plays an important part, especially in the metal connections fabricated into the board called “traces”. Traces conduct signals to and from the pins of the components soldered to the board and carry varying amounts of current depending on the net. Additionally, the signal’s traces may have special

Do I Need a RoHS-Compliant PCB?

Consumers are becoming more aware of the long-term implications of their purchases. Waste is a serious problem, and efforts to reduce environmental impact play a key role in how many products are sold. While this is more of a “feel- good” method by which end-users can attempt to lower their carbon footprint, industries will often

PCB Assembly: ESD-Sensitive Components in Electronic Circuits

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) occurs when any charged body attempts to become electrically neutral. During ESD, the static charges stored in one body rapidly get transferred to another at different electrical potentials through direct physical contact, induction, or arcing. ESD generates voltage that can damage electronic components. Electronic parts that are sensitive to ESD voltage are
