PCB Supply Chain: Design for Resiliency

While supply chain problems are evident in most industries, it is especially noticeable in electronics production. Designers continue to face part shortages and challenges in getting circuit boards manufactured. Here we’ll outline some of the causes of these problems and the PCB supply chain best practices that will help.

Electronic Manufacturing Outsourcing Engineers Solutions

Depending on who’s participating in the conversation, outsourcing can be a contentious topic in manufacturing. In some contexts, it means work and jobs moving thousands of miles away due to cheaper labor costs or a reduced final product quality due to less stringent oversight. But outsourcing doesn’t just mean moving work abroad; outsourcing can be…

PCB Heat Dissipation Techniques to Improve Performance

I’ve been burned in the kitchen more times than I’d care to admit; while these once were painful lessons, they now serve as a constant reminder that kitchen work requires respect and undivided attention. When I was much younger, I marveled at the induction stovetop while visiting a friend, and while I had learned many…

Thermal Vias Improve Heat Flux

To perform at the higher levels expected of each succeeding generation of electronic devices, the more those electronics have to function at greater operational levels. To do this, complex component packages with larger pin counts are used in increasingly denser circuitry requiring greater power. And while this PCB design technology produces the required results, it…

PCB Substrate Selection for Manufacturability

Buried discreetly inside of nearly every electronic device is a printed circuit board. Usually green in color, PCBs will have diverse electronic components soldered to them depending on their function. Circuit boards like this are at the core of the electronics industry today, but there is much more to them than what’s gleanable in a…

Medical Device Prototype Development: Manufacturer Tips

While modern electronic manufacturing and design are more conscious of the environmental impacts on biological systems for e-waste, medical devices have to operate while performing vital care safely. This heightened requirement can affect anything from material selection for components or the board to limits on circuit parameters. People rely on medical devices for everything from…
