Surface Mount Technology in PCB Assembly

Friday, 11 December 2015 by

Have you ever wondered how your electronic gadgets work? Well, their operation is largely dependent upon the kind of printed circuit boards used in their manufacturing, and the method of producing electronic circuits, upon which other components are then mounted. This method is known as Surface Mount Technology and it has effectively replaced the through-hole technology where the components were fitted on to each other via wires passing through punched holes.

With fast paced technological advancements of the 21st century, the demand for electronics today is higher than ever. The supply now needs to meet the demand without failing to deliver quality. This is why older ways of outsourcing different production materials from various sources is no longer valid in today’s times, as sub contractors are unable to coordinate accordingly, which leads to flailing services and poor customer satisfaction rates.

A printed circuit board, also known as PCB, is a plastic board especially manufactured to connect electronic components found in devices such as beepers and pagers. But in fact, PCB is used in almost all computers and electronics. The board is made up of a non-conductive material like fiberglass or plastic, while conductive tracks, pads and other features are etched from a metal sheet (e.g. copper) laminated in the non-conductive substrate.

The 20th century has seen progressive strategic growth when it comes to outsourcing EMS. The EMS provider thus, plays a key role in the manufacturing and assembly of your company’s technical units. So, in order to help you make sound strategic outsourcing decisions; we have compiled a list of some things you should consider.

What Exactly are PCBs Used for?

Printed Circuit Boards (also more commonly known as PCBs) are actually very thin boards composed of an insulating material. They have a metal coated surface, which can be present on either one or both sides of the board. The electrical pathways (that allow electricity to travel amongst various components) are etched on top of the

Take any electronic device – it doesn’t matter if it’s a computer, mobile phone or even a complicated toy – open it up, and inside you are bound to come across a PCB (printed circuit board). At the first glance, all of them might look the same, but they hardly ever are. It might surprise

PCB Testing: Why is it Important?

Monday, 12 October 2015 by

PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards) are used in almost everything nowadays. Almost any electronic device you can think of, be it, computers, phones, or even complex toys incorporates the use of printed circuit boards. If the PCBs were to malfunction, the entire electronic device would stop functioning the way it was supposed to. In such cases,

Properly functioning printed circuit boards are essential for both manufacturers of electronic devices and also the developers if the overall intent is for the electronic device to function at high capacity. From designing the schematics of the printed circuit boards to testing the products, there is no process of PCB manufacturing and/or assembly that can
