PCB Assembly: How to prevent non-wetting defects

The manufacturing process for printed circuit boards (PCBs) usually includes a procedure known as reflow soldering, or reflow. Reflow involves covering the surface of the PCB with solder paste to facilitate temporary attachment of the board’s thousands of minuscule components to their PCB pads. The solder paste stabilizes the components long enough for an application

How a PCB Assembly Defect Detection System Guarantees Product Quality

A PCB assembly process requires collective and sustained attention to ensure the end product’s quality. In the absence of a solid PCB assembly defect detection system, you may miss a tilted component or a bad solder web despite rigorous manual testing. If you are lucky, it may only cost you some additional reworks. Worst case

PCB Assembly: Eight SMT Placement Issues and How to Avoid Them

As we all know, an incorrect component placement during PCB assembly can create problems for the completed circuit board ranging from performance to manufacturability. Because these SMT placement issues can manifest themselves in vastly different ways, we will generalize them in the following eight categories: 1. Signal integrity SMT components that are not placed correctly

PCB Assembly: Through-Hole Vs. Surface Mount

PCB assembly services have been arguing the benefits and drawbacks of through-hole vs. surface mount technologies since the 1980s. Through-hole technology (THT) is the original assembly process that dominated the industry until the invention of surface mount technology (SMT) in the 80’s. Surface mount is more efficient and cost-effective than THT, leading many to believe
