Printed Circuit Board (PCB) for Surface Mount Technology (SMT)

A printed circuit board, or PCB, is an integral part of electronics. A PCB is basically a substrate (normally made from glass epoxy) with conductive traces etched from copper sheets. These copper traces facilitate flow of electricity. Electronic components are soldered along this conductive pathway thus controlling the flow and quantity of electricity needed.

Basic Soldering Guide – How to Solder Electronic Components

Proper soldering technique and quality of solder are the lifeline of any PCB manufacturing and assembly. If you are into electronics, you must be knowing that soldering is basically a technique to join two metals using a third metal or alloy. In electronic PCB Manufacturing, assembly and rework, the metals to be joined are the leads of

Printed Circuit Board Prototype

Printed circuit board prototype is one the most important part and tool for any engineer in electronics and PCB manufacturing and assembly. PCB prototype is extremely important starting from designing to finished electronic products, gadgets or appliances. It allows testing a given design to find out if it will work or not. This way one can debug and rectify …

Printed Circuit Board: Design, Diagram and Assembly

Circuit board or printed circuit board (PCB) or printed wiring board (PWB), is a board made out of non-insulating and highly heat-resistant insulating material such as fiberglass. These boards are also called substrates. A substrate or board may have only one single layer (single-layer circuit board) or more than one layer (multilayer circuit board). A conductive metal such as …

Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA) – Process, Technology, Tips and Techniques

Printed circuit board assembly, also known as PCBA, is the process of soldering or assembly of electronic components to a PCB or printed circuit board. A circuit board prior to assembly of electronic components is known as PCB. Once electronic components are soldered, the board is called Printed Circuit Assembly (PCA) or Printed Circuit Board Assembly
