When you build a piece of medical equipment, traceability is critical—particularly when building a printed circuit board, as there several individual components and materials that go into the manufacturing of a PCB.
IC manufacturers follow a process method called “copy exactly.” Here is a look at copy exact manufacturing and how it pertains to PCB contract manufacturers.
From fabrication to assembly, there are a lot of things that can happen to your circuit board. Your contract manufacturer should have the systems and procedures in place to prevent problems and ensure the best quality assembly for your design.
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.
