EMI can be generated in a number of different ways on a PCB, with one of the biggest problems coming from the onboard power supply circuitry. Let’s take a closer look at this problem and some design ideas for reducing EMI in switching power supplies.
In order to make sure that your new product introduction is a success, you need to look at a manufacturer’s quality, their reputation, and what their capabilities are. Without fully looking into a manufacturer first, you may find out that your costs end up being much more than you initially bargained for. Here are some ideas on how you can find the best high mix low volume contract manufacturing for your electronics new product introduction.
Your circuit board design needs to be prepared for the heat as well, but slathering some Coppertone on the power supply components just won’t cut it. PCBs that aren’t prepared for the heat of manufacturing and regular operation are going to have a lot of problems. We’ll take a look at some of the issues with PCB thermal management, and how you can design a board that will thrive in the heat instead of withering.
In printed circuit board manufacturing, static is Electrostatic Discharge or ESD, and it can be a real problem if not contained and controlled. Thankfully there are a lot of processes and techniques that PCB contract manufacturers use to make sure that your board doesn’t suffer from ESD contamination. Let’s take a look here at what the different problems are with ESD in electronics manufacturing, and how they can be dealt with.
Interestingly enough, the word “thief” is used in printed circuit board design as well, and it also relates to deftly stealing something covertly. In this case, however, we are talking about the theft of copper during circuit board fabrication, and the skill of this burglary is actually very important to the manufacturing of your circuit board. Does that sound like a wanted poster that you would be interested to find out more about? If so, then keep reading, and we’ll discuss copper thieving in PCB design and its importance to you.
Merriam-Webster reports that a “via” is either, “by way of,” or “by means of.” Come to think of it, that describes the purpose of a via in a PCB pretty well. An electrical signal is conducted by way of and by means of this small hole called a via. Let’s drill down a little deeper into this subject and find out more about what vias are, and answer the question of just how are PCB vias plated.
