Some years ago, the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDAC) adopted the phrase “Where Electronics Begins” as a tagline. Coined by Richard Goering during hisEE Timesdays, the phrase remains more... (See More)
Printed circuit boards or PCBs are used to support and connect electronic components via conductive tracks, pathways and signal traces composed of copper sheeting laminated to a non-conductive base.

The screen you are looking at this very moment will someday be recycled. Electronic recycling is fast becoming just as important as plastic and steel recycling. This is because your household electron... (See More)
The march for miniaturization never stops as evidenced by portable products the size of a credit card that outperform some laptop and even desktop computers. Probably one of the most challenging marke... (See More)
A new high-power, pluggable printed circuit board terminal block can be used in high-current, high-voltage applications. The Power Combicon PC 6 terminal block has a pin spacing of 10.16 mm and is UL ... (See More)
In PCB fabrication the aspect ratio is the thickness of a PCB divided by the diameter size of a drilled hole — see Figure 1 below. It's importance relates to the plating process — plating solutions mu... (See More)
Lighting products based on light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are gaining a stronger foothold in many different application areas—consumer, commercial, industrial, and even military products. LEDs provide i... (See More)
New LED displays with built-in IC drivers are targeted at designers who need to reduce the number of components on pc boards. Available in both two- and three-digit configurations, these òsmartó displ... (See More)
Recently, we finished a not-so-common PCB, it was a 2 layer pcb, but line width/space is only 3.15mil/3.3mil, mininum via is 0.15mm and BGA is 9.84mil (see below image). Well, if this was a HDI multi-... (See More)
An interesting printer that prints circuits on various materials. Despite it’s high price points and the rumors that the ink will we costly as well, that’s an amazing piece of work.
