Solder Mask Colors

When you are about to select the different parameters for the printed circuit boards, one of the best option is to think of the solder mask colors. The solder masks are available in different colors from which you can choose and make your printed circuit board. The following are the major solder mask colors which are widely adopted for the printed circuit board designs. 

1.Green

The green color is the most used color as solder mask in the printed circuit boards. The color of such printed circuit boards is usually bod green and is having white silkscreen. Practically green is the best color for the design of the printed circuit boards and is suited well. The white silkscreen is also in good contrast with the green color.

standard pcb thickness

by @sunshine - Dec 04, 2017 - Standard PCB thickness

The standard PCB thickness refers to the assembly of single or additional cores which are connected using sheets of cured epoxy. The options that are offered to customers may range from 0.008 inches to 0.240 inches. Multiple laminate options ensure that the right impedance of the PCB. Notice that the board’s finish determines the thickness of the PCB and that each finish is different and comes with its advantages.

When choosing the thickness of your PCB, the use to which it should be put to should guide you. It is important that you coordinate with your manufacturer if you need specific thickness that meet your needs. Notice that the price of the PCB is determined by the thickness. The price for standard PCB thickness differs from that for non-standard.

PCB Artist

by @sunshine - Dec 01, 2017 - PCB Artist Design

The PCB artist is an electronic design system which is based on an integrated environment that is providing the necessary tools for a schematic capturing of design. In other words, it is a board of epoxy that is made up of copper sheets which are used to carry out electrical connections through fixed routes.

It produces professionally manufactured data. This software can directly send the manufacturing data to the PCB supplier. This data will then enable you to create the last physical printed circuit board.

The PCB artist is free software which will allow you to produce schematics and PCBs. It strictly intuitive and enables simple modifications and editing. It offers a component updated library which inhabits so many significant components. Whenever you want to make use of your PCB artist, you will be able to open the type of number and combinations of different design with any library item at the same time.

IPC Standards

To be in a competitive position and to maintain your position in the electronics industry, you as a manufacturer should attain to a high-quality product position. It is important to follow all the process and steps for the product manufacturing with high-quality. You should make sure that you manufacture your products in compliance with the IPC standards. Manufacturing with the IPC standards is the best way to make sure that your product output is reliable and qualitative. These standards will surely help you to manufacture high-quality goods which will be accepted. Making use of the IPC standards to manufacture your products will enable the product to perform very well and to have a long lifespan. Since the IPC standard is what your EMS services providers and suppliers make use of, you will be on the same wavelength with them. You will be able to understand them very well since all of you are speaking the same language known in the world's electronic industry. Making use of the IPC st

Diptrace

by @sunshine - Nov 23, 2017 - Diptrace

Diptrace is a software that can be used to create printed circuit boards and schematic diagrams. It is available in the multilingual interface and comes in 4 modules: pattern editor, component editor, 3D- preview PCB layout editor and schematic capture. It is an advanced circuit design tool that can be used for the logical pin and visual connections. It is an engineering tool for advanced verification, shape-based auto-router, manual routing and has import/export capability.

Component Editor

Is used to manage component libraries and help to create multi-part components. The engineer can use it to select a template and its dimensions set up. The model defines the electrical pin parameters and attach pattern with 3D models. Diptrace can then be used to import libraries from various EDA formats. All that one needs to do is to select the template and enter important parameters. It can be used to create non-standard patterns as well as creating complex layouts.

printed circuit boards

The printed circuit boards are known as PCBs which is a plate or board being used for the placement of different components to make an electrical or electronic device. There are inter connections in between different components of the circuit boards in the form of routes of copper. The simplest of the circuit board is having the traces of coppers which are inter connecting different components of the device. The circuit boards come in a variety of different layers such as layer 1, layer 2, and layer 3 etc.

Black PCB

You might have seen black PCBs these days. The PCBs are not actually black but the solder mask of such PCBs are black because of numerous reasons. One of the main reason why solder mask is kept black is that the reflection of the light is not desired in such circuits.

The Solder Mask

The solder mask is the most vital component or material required for the production of Printed Circuit Boards. The solder mask is also known as the solder resist and its main purpose is to lacquer or varnish the entire surface of the PCB on both top and bottom for the formation of the protection layer which is permanent and the traces of copper are to be printed over it. The solder mask is the main agent to prevent the solder from coming in between the conductors and is also responsible for the creation of short in the circuit. The layer is also responsible for offering protection against the environment as well.

The Solder Mask

For the generation of the electrical components, the process of assembly is needed. For this process, a dedicated machinery is required. The assembly process is achieved by soldering the components over the circuit board. For the prevention of the circuit boards to be short-circuited accidentally, the solder mask is being used by the manufacturers of the printed circuit boards which is separating two nets apart. The common color of the solder mask used is green, mor

Custom Printed Circuit Boards

For you to make a custom printed circuit board, it is important to put your circuit together in a circuit maker software that has the capacity to make simulations. This is helpful in the sense that you can simulate your circuit and ensure that it is working. There are some great circuit simulation programs that even check for any possible circuit or component flaws.

After all the circuit simulations are well done, and it is clear that the custom PCB will function as expected, the next step is to put the components of the custom circuit together in a breadboard. This step is important in ensuring that your circuit works well in the real world. Another important trick is to use development boards to test the practical circuit. This is especially important where microcontroller programming is needed. With the development boards, you may not even need the breadboard to test every part of your circuit since the development board has the female and/or male headers and all that you need
