Via Stitching Guidelines for High Current Traces

Current is a vital part of the operation of any circuit board, but as the current in a fast-moving river, it can also be unforgiving if not treated with the care that it deserves. When you are working with high current applications, you need to exercise an even greater amount of caution in your design. Let’s take a look at some via stitching guidelines and other tactics that are helpful in designing high current printed circuit boards.

SMT Component Placement: Part 2 ― Accuracy

If the parts on the board aren’t placed accurately, there will usually be problems in how the board is assembled. There are many factors that can contribute to this including whether the physical parts themselves are within their manufacturer’s tolerances, and how they are used on the circuit board. Let’s look at some of these issues, and some recommendations on how you can design for better SMT component placement accuracy.
