What are the Steps in BGA Repairing? – Part I
Ball Grid Array (BGA) packages have become very popular in the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) design and manufacturing industry. These packages not only help reduce the size of PCBs, but also improve their functionality. Though the BGA are capable of bearing the increasing pressure of decreasing sizes of the products, they seldom require maintenance and

Controlled Impedance – How to Get it Right?
Miniaturization is a hot trend in the PCB industry. There is a huge demand for compact sized and fast-paced PCBs. Although an asset in many electronic devices, there are many components in these fast PCBs, which may not work as expected, and lead to failure. Hence, the PCB manufacturers know the importance of slowing down
Must Know Things about Solder Paste Stencils – Part 2
Stencils ensure that only the right amount of solder paste is applied to all of the pads on your bare board. In the last post, we have discussed the role of stencils in PCB assembly, how are they used, and common types of stencils. In this post, we will have a look at the benefits
Must Know Things about Solder Paste Stencils – Part 1
Stencils are thin sheets made of brass or stainless steel. It has a circuit pattern cut into it that matches the pattern of the surface mount devices required (SMD) on the PCB. They simplify the application of solder paste to surface mount components in a PCB assembly. In this post, we will discuss the role
Crucial Things to Consider for Quick Turn PCBs
The electronics industry is one of that critical sectors wherein new product developments and modifications to the existing products happen every now and then. To support the inventions of such a fast-moving sector, PCB fabricators also offer several assembly services to meet the requirements of the electronics manufacturers. Amongst all such services, quick turn PCBs
Designing HDI PCBs? How About Using UV Lasers?
Over the years, Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) have seen a lot of advancements in the technology. This has been possible because of the continuous development and implementation of newer techniques in the designing and manufacturing of these boards. Among several techniques, there is one method, which helps design circuit boards precisely. It uses ultrafast ultraviolet
What Makes Conformal Coating Hot Favorite for the PCB Industry?
Today, printed circuit boards (PCBs) are used in almost every technical application. These circuit boards are coated with different materials, which protect them in harsh environments and allow them to deliver good performance consistently. Conformal coating is one such coating done over PCBs, which helps protect the electronic circuits. It is basically a chemical coating,
