Alternative Fixture Reduces PCBA Test Costs

Sep. 30, 1999 Staff | EE Product News Manufacturing test departments that find it hard to justify building expensive fixtures for testing prototype printed-circuit-board assemblies now have an inexpensive alternative to conventional in-circuit fixtures. The HR SR1300 fixture interface accommodates assemblies with up to 1296 nodes, cutting fixture test costs by as much as 50 percent. The new […]

PCB Technology Interview With Sunstone

I was able to interview a few people from Sunstone about rapid prototyping and the PCB industry for research for my article on perfect prototypes (see Tap New Technologies To Produce Practically Perfect Prototypes). I spoke with CAD/EDA Manager Nolan Johnson, Marketing Media Manager Molly O’Hara and Quality Assurance Manager Matt Stevenson.Wong: How has the PCB industry […]

Long duration timer circuit board design

This timer circuit board can be used to switch OFF a particular device after around 35 minutes. The circuit board can be used to switch OFF devices like radio, TV, fan, pump etc after a preset time of 35 minutes. Such a circuit can surely save a lot of power. The circuit board is based […]

Remote Control Circuit board design Through RF Without Microcontroller

This is a simple type remote control board by using RF communication without microcontroller. In this project a remote has been designed for various home appliances like television, fan, lights and so on. It gives lot of comfort to the user since we can operate it by staying at one place. We can control any […]

Nine common component packaging technologies

Component packaging plays the role of mounting, fixing, sealing, protecting the chip and enhancing the electrothermal performance. At the same time, wires are connected to the pins of the package shell through the contacts on the chip, and these pins are connected to other devices through wires on the printed circuit board, thereby realizing the […]

AOI automatic optical inspection for PCBA

SMT electronic patch and plug-in processing manufacturers must ensure the quality of their products. In order to ensure the quality of products, it is particularly important to monitor the quality of semi-finished or finished products in each production link during the product manufacturing process. With the printing of surface mount technology (SMT) The development trend […]

Five development trends of PCBA

Vigorously develop high-density interconnection technology (HDI) ─ HDI embodies the most advanced technology of contemporary PCB, which brings fine wire and micro-aperture to PCB. Component embedding technology with strong vitality ─ Component embedding technology is a huge change in PCB functional integrated circuits. PCB manufacturers must increase resource investment in systems including design, equipment, testing, […]

PCBA status

Since the production of printed circuit boards is in the latter half of electronic equipment manufacturing, it is called the downstream industry of the electronics industry. Almost all electronic devices need the support of printed circuit boards, so printed circuit boards are the product with the highest market share in the global electronic component products. […]

Basic knowledge of PCBA

Basic material of PCBA The substrate is generally classified by the insulating part of the substrate. Common raw materials are bakelite, fiberglass board, and various types of plastic boards. And PCB manufacturers generally use an insulating part composed of glass fiber, non-woven material, and resin, and then use epoxy resin and copper foil to press […]
