New product development is common in those industries that seek the benefits of newer electronics that continually increase their capabilities in smaller form factors. Each successive computer, game system, or mobile device boasts more speed, power, and functionality than its predecessor.
When you have your printed circuit board design manufactured, you want to get the best quality board built without any unpleasant surprises in cost. There are however some unintentional errors that can happen in design that could drive those costs up. Here are the top 5 PCB assembly cost drivers that you should consider while still in design.
For years, electronic components have been soldered onto printed circuit boards using solder with a lead base. To protect the environment from exposure to lead and other harmful substances, regulations are now in place for certain areas to restrict their use. Here’s more information on what lead free PCB manufacturing is, and why it is important.
To keep these electronics from being affected by external electromagnetic interference (EMI), or affecting each other, automotive electronics today have to meet specific electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements. To do this, electronics designers for automotive products have to understand what those requirements are, and how best to design for them. Here is a little more information on how you can be prepared for designing to the EMI/EMC standards for automotive electronic components.
