PCB manufacturing consists of many steps, such as PCB CAM, Panelization, Copper patterning, etc. This group is mainly talked about the problems during PCB manufacturing!

I want to have a trace on the bottom copper layer which is connected to a pad on the front copper layer, but I don't want to make the hole into the pad. Can you give me the suggestions for doing a blind via to rectangular pad on 2 layer board?

As blind vias cost more money, so can you avoid using the blind via? And board layer counts are always even numbers as a result of the manufacturing process.


A common way to avoid what you do not want is to run copper to where they can be tolerated.


Why do you need to make a blind via instead of a thru hole? Have your board design used no -thru-hole rule?


You can ask your PCB manufacturer to send the quotation of 4 layers PCB with blind vias.


Very interesting post.
