Guidelines For Designing a Printed Circuit Board

Written by Angie Brown
Posted on January 24, 2023 at 9:18 AM

From a printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing supplier’s point of view, often we are consulted about design and layout at the concept phase. Over the past many years, we have seen an increase in customers asking to assist with design, layout, and modifications to the circuit board. From this repeat request, we developed an engineering team to make it happen.
