Benefits of PCB Edge Plating

It’s hard to imagine now, but seat belts weren’t required in cars at one-time. However, the lap and shoulder-harness seat belt became the industry and cultural standard in most places after many injuries. Now you can’t drive too far down the freeway without seeing a “Click It or Ticket” sign posted alongside the road.

Printed Circuit Board Disposal

Designing and manufacturing PCBs is so complex that it’s easy to forget what happens to a fully-functioning and regulated board once it leaves the shop. After a hopefully long and uneventful service life, the board will naturally reach the end of its use or become obsolete due to the presence of a revision, upgrade, or entirely new product. The business world refers to this situation as an externality: an unintended consequence of industry.

Do I Need a ROHS-Compliant PCB?

The implementation of RoHS has greatly reduced the presence of dangerous metals and chemicals that may eventually escape their packaging and be a downstream health concern to local fauna and flora. However, the industry is multitudinous enough in its applications that a RoHS compliant PCB is not always the best solution. In cases where RoHS materials would directly impact human health and safety, it is far more important to support the reliability and operational stability of the device.
