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

Differences between IC and PCB

This article will summarize the differences between the integrated circuit (IC) and printed circuit board (PCB). 1 PCB Basics 1.1 Composition of PCB -Wiring the Pattern: the wiring is a tool to conduct the components, and a large copper surface is additionally designed to ground and used as the power. The wiring and the pattern

PCB Component to Edge Clearance Considerations

Components that are placed too close to the edge of the board run the risk of being damaged or causing problems with other aspects of circuit board manufacturing. The problem is that some components have to be close to or on the edge of the board in order to perform their function. Connectors, switches, and

DFM: Cost Effectiveness Analysis in PCB Layout for Manufacturability

Starting a project without first counting the cost can end up being an expensive mistake, and this principle doesn’t apply to only large construction projects. Any project should be evaluated first for its cost to avoid unpleasant surprises, and this includes getting a printed circuit board manufactured. There are design for manufacturing (DFM) rules that

What is PCB Panelization?

What is a PCB panel? A PCB panel, also called a PCB array, is a single board consisting of multiple individual boards. Once assembled, the panel is then broken apart, or depanelized, into the individual PCBs during the breakout process. The benefit of the printed circuit board panelization process is a decrease in defeats as

Rogers PCB Vs FR4 PCB – What is the Difference?

In the world of hi-tech gadgets, medical equipment, and Industrial Machines, the performance of any product depends mainly on the quality of its PCB design. Though there are multiple aspects to be considered while designing a PCB, our focus here is to identify the right PCB material which is also known as Substrate. Substrates are

Why SMT Component Placement is Important

As electronics continue to shrink, PCB designers must pay more attention to where components are placed to ensure that every IC on a dense board “gets along.” With smaller boards, the risk for hot spots and thermal failure increases. Signal integrity also has to be taken into account with analog and digital circuits in close
