Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are the critical elements in the electronic devices since nearly 100 years. The PCB base is a non-conductive material with copper tracks printed and etched. Electronic components are mounted on the board, and the tracks connect the parts to form a working circuit.
What is a PCB board?
Why are PCB boards used?
It is used in most electronic products around us – smart watches, television, computers, or even electrical appliances like a washing machine or an iron – basically every modern item. While there are many different types of printed circuit boards, from one layer in cheaper
consumer devices to more than 60 layers in advanced applications. All the PCBs play an important role in avoiding manual bailouts, automatic connection or soldering of electronic components, and testing as PCB consistency also has good quality for electronic devices, improves productivity.
PCBs can be divided into several different categories. From easy standard rigid boards to extreme designs with flexible- or other exotic materials. All depend upon what application the designer intends to create. Price can vary a lot between different solutions but is needed to get the desired performance.
Types of printed circuit boards
Our definition of “Standard PCB” is a rigid glass-fibre board with one or more layers. This is by far the most common PCB in today’s production and will cover the most design needs.
High-dense-interconnect PCBs meet the demand for smaller PCB with more compact components by increasing wiring capabilities. It makes the boards lighter, compact, and conserves space while maintaining excellent performance.
Flexible printed circuit boards get the name from the ability to be bent in a working application. This is called dynamic flex. Other flexible design is Intended to be folded to be able to fit a very narrow space in the final assembly.
RIGID-FLEX PCB excels in overcoming space and weight constraints due to spatial degrees of freedom. They can be used to benefit nearly all advanced electrical applications in medicine, military, aerospace, and consumer products, including testing equipment, tools, and automobiles. Apart from the Flexible PCB, the Rigid part of this design, can be made with the same design rules as a standard PCB, and increase the options for the final product.
A metal core printed circuit board uses metal as its base material to spread heat accumulated due to some electronic components operating on the board throughout the board. It is widely used in LED technologies to enable high power in the industry of lighting.
High-frequency PCBs are often needed while developing high-frequency products, such as satellite systems, radio frequency, microwave, mobile telephone base stations, etc. These communication products usually use high-frequency substrates when designing the PCB.
Customized high-precision laser-cut solder paste stencils are used by the subcontractor assembly company to apply solder paste with high accuracy to all places that shall be soldered. Fully optimized by our CAM engineers, we can assure seamless production; we support all known stencil-framing on the market.
PCB prototyping can be the most important step during electronic development. Not only for the designer to verify the function, but also to let the assembly unit check the effectiveness of production. MULTI-TEKNIK greatly reduces your costs and saves time when taking care of your prototype needs.
