Too often, PCB design for assembly practices are viewed as simple checks the manufacturer makes after they receive the PCB design data. Instead, these guidelines are critical for the PCB designer to observe during layout.
Here’s a look at how to avoid some of the most common PCB layout mistakes, as well as insight into how your PCB contract manufacturer should help along the way.
There will still be times when the assembly of a PCB will require the human touch. Here are some examples of how both the automated and manual assembly processes have importance in the manufacturing of your PCBA.
When change request best practices are followed, the engineering development of the prototype will continue as it should. If change request best practices aren’t observed, however, chaos will reign.
To avoid PCB component failures, your CM should have a strict policy and adequate techniques in place for inspection and testing.
As PCB layout technology has evolved, the manufacturing of circuit boards has changed as well. Fortunately, there is yet another leap forward in the industry that has proven to be a great help: the selective soldering process.
