Almost all electronic devices have PCB boards, from household electronic watches, calculators, communication electronic equipment, to military weapon systems. This also means that as long as there are electronic components such as integrated circuits, in order to interconnect them, we must use printed circuit boards. Let’s follow the turnkey PCB assembly company FS Technology to see the classification and process flow of pcb equipment.
PCB production process
In the study of large electronic products, the most fundamental success factor is the design, manufacture and assembly of printed circuit boards. PCB design and manufacturing directly affect the quality and cost of the product. This determines whether a business can succeed when competing.
PCB manufacturing process: incoming plate→pickling→pump washing→city washing→four brushes with swing plate→high pressure infusion pump washing (20 Kg/cm 2 )→pump cleaning→city washing→suction→drying→drying→discharging.
In electronic devices, PCBs provide the following functions:
- Provide mechanical support for the fixing and assembly of electronic components such as integrated circuits.
- Realize wiring and electrical connection or electrical insulation between various electronic components such as integrated circuits.
- Provide the required electrical characteristics, such as characteristic impedance, etc.
- Solder mask graphics for automated soldering, identifying characters and graphics for component insertion, inspection and maintenance are provided.
For some companies that do not have their own factories, assembling printed circuit boards is very troublesome. You can take a look at the FS Technology PCB component capabilities. We can meet the needs of most customers.
Basic terms related to PCB
On the insulating substrate, according to a predetermined design, a printed circuit, a printed element or a combination of two conductive patterns is made, which is called a printed circuit.
Because the PCB can provide electrical connection channels for the components, the conductive pattern of the device is called a printed circuit. Electronic components are assembled by a one-stop PCB assembly company.
The printed circuit board is called a PCB board, also called a PC board, and the assembled PCB board is called a PCBA board.
Classification of PCB boards
According to the degree of rigidity and flexibility of the substrate: rigid printed circuit board board, flexible PCB board and rigid-flex PCB board.
According to the number of layers of the PCB: single-sided, double-sided and multi-layer printed boards.
The position of conductor pattern and substrate: flat printed board and curved printed circuit board.
The use of printed boards in electronic equipment avoids errors in manual wiring due to the printed board-like consistency. Through a turnkey PCB assembly company, we can help you realize automatic insertion or installation of electronic components, automatic welding and automatic detection, which ensures the quality of electronic equipment, improves labor productivity, reduces costs, and facilitates maintenance.
Printed circuit boards (PCBs) have developed from single-layer to double-sided, multi-layer and flexible, and have maintained their respective development trends. Due to the continuous development in the direction of high precision, high density and high reliability, and the continuous reduction of size, cost and performance, printed circuit boards will still maintain strong vitality in future electronic equipment development projects.
A sign of the level of PCB technology
The skill level of a turnkey PCB assembly company depends on the fabrication of double-sided and porous metallized printed boards. The manufacture of porous metallized printed boards is the standard of qualification for turnkey companies. FS Tech can achieve high volume production of double-sided metal printed boards. We can also record the number of conductors for you if you need it.
FS Technologies will place wires between the two pads if using low density PCBs with trace widths greater than 0.3 mm. Place two lines between the two pads of the MDF with a line width of about 0.2 mm. If FS Technology uses a high density board with a line width of about 0.1 – 0.15mm, it will place three lines between the two pads. To sum up, we can see that the density of the board depends on the number of lines between the pads.
