Developing a successful RF printed circuit board (PCB) design requires careful consideration of various factors to ensure optimal performance and reliability. RF PCBs are essential components in wireless communication systems, radar systems, and other applications that rely on radio frequency signals.
In the ever-evolving world of electronics and engineering, the significance of custom cable assemblies are paramount. These vital components, often overshadowed by more prominent elements, play a crucial role in the functionality and efficiency of various systems.
At the conclusion of our webinar, Low Layer Count PCBs – Why They Are Not All Created Equal, we had several questions submitted to our presenter, Ed McMahon, CEO at Epec. We have compiled these questions into a readable format on our blog.
In the realm of printed circuit board (PCB) engineering, the design incorporates through holes as a means to establish connections across the board's various layers or secure the card during the assembly process. These through holes come in two distinct categories: plated and non-plated.
From powering everyday gadgets like smartphones and laptops to complex systems in medical devices and aerospace technology, printed circuit boards (PCBs) are fundamental to modern electronics. They are essentially the heart and soul of all the electronic gadgets and devices that we use in our daily lives. For those in the industry or even casual tech enthusiasts, understanding the basic principles of printed circuit boards is invaluable.
In today's modern world, energy efficiency has become a top priority for many industries. One area where significant strides have been made is in refrigeration technology. Flexible heaters have emerged as an innovative solution that has revolutionized refrigeration efficiency.
Battery fuel gauges are an essential component in today's world of mobile and portable devices. A battery fuel gauge acts as a battery pack's brain for efficient power management in electronic devices by providing accurate real-time data on the battery's state of charge (SoC) and state of health (SoH).
In the world of printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing, the devil is in the details. Even subtle design features like plated edges, castellated holes, and advanced milling techniques have far-reaching implications in terms of cost and production time.
Wrap plating is a technique used in the manufacturing of printed circuit boards (PCBs) to create a conductive layer that connects the layers of the PCB together. The process involves plating copper onto the walls of through-holes and vias in the PCB, which are then used to make electrical connections between the layers.
