How to get most of Flex and Rigid-Flex PCBs?

Almost since day one, one or another type of PCB was a necessary component in electronics. Earlier it was used as mechanical support where electronics components were attached and wired separately. Later from being only mechanical support, PCBs started providing electrical connectivity. Modern rigid PCBs are more than mechanical support and connectivity. They can integrate electronic components such as antennas, inductors resistors and capacitors. Modern PCBs are designed to spread thermal energy to keep parts cool. In some cases, PCBs are used as design elements, front and back panels. Rigid PCBs dominates because of their manufacturing simplicity, low cost and high demand. Modern electronics have changed significantly with the increasing demand for small, sophisticated and yet efficient devices. Small devices tend to have weird shapes and are packed with loads of electronics where conventional rigid PCBs start failing to fill this niche as is it cannot be bent, or be layered on top of each other without increasing thickness of device size. Earlier flex PCBs were used moderately in the limited number of applications due to increased expenses of limited… Continue reading

Assembling PCBs with Automated Surface-Mount Technology

Manufacturing printed circuit boards can be time-consuming unless you are a turn-key manufacturer. There is a way to speed up the process by using automated surface-mount technology (SMT). This type of technology automates the process of applying components and using through-hole technology to create PCBs. Continue reading

The Advantages of Flex PCBs And Their Applications

PCBs are an inherent component of electronic devices. They provide mechanical support and electrical connectivity for the electronic appliances. Initially, customers preferred simple, and rigid PCBs as they were easy to make, less expensive, and used for specific purposes. However, with the ever-increasing consumers’ demand and need for smaller, and sophisticated appliances, the developers faced a new challenge of integrating complex circuits into a final application. It demanded small, yet efficient, durable, yet lighter in weight PCBs that can fit into modern electronic appliances having smaller size and dimensions. Moreover, the need for PCBs that can withstand high temperature, pressure, and tough commercial and industrial conditions provided the electronics developers a stimulus to manufacture different kinds of PCBs to fulfill rising needs and expectations of the people. This led to the introduction of flexible PCBs into the world of electronics. Since then, their demand has only increased and worldwide share of flexible PCBs is expected, backed by anecdotal evidence and data, to reach a staggering $27 billion by 2022. At present, its demand is burgeoning at an annual rate of… Continue reading

How Does Turnkey PCB Assembly Decrease Turnaround Time

Manufacturing is a time-sensitive process. Technology changes rapidly, so when you need PCB assembly, turnkey is often the best choice. Why? Because turnkey PCB assembly decreases turnaround time, so you can release your product as quickly as possible. Turnkey PCB assembly works so quickly because it does not use the traditional methods of PCB assembly. Those traditional methods involve several people and organizations. When you take those hands off of the project, it can get done at a faster clip. Continue reading
