Line Spacing: A Key to Long-Term Relationship with Your PCB

Spacing is important, whether it’s in your day-to-day life or in the PCB industry. Consider, you have a noisy neighbor, won’t you prefer to have more space between you? PCB traces are no exception. The worst part is all of the PCB traces are noisy. Well, you can deal with your noisy neighbor (just call 911!), but a noisy PCB trace is another story.

7 PCB Libraries Questions Answered by Natasha Baker

Which standards should I use for my PCB libraries? What factors will affect the manufacturability of my final PCB? What are the common errors that I need to be extra wary of when I define my libraries to prevent unneeded PCB prototype iterations? These are some of the many question’s PCB designers ask before starting their designs. We decided to address these issues to make life easier for PCB designers. So, we sat down with Natasha Baker and asked a few questions faced by PCB designers during the selection of PCB libraries.

Automotive Sensors: A Pinch of Digital Spice in the Mechanical Curry

During the 19th century, a car or an automobile was treated as the mechanical marvel, operated by a solid engine with an elegant design. However, the beginning of the 21st century has brought substantial changes to the automotive sector. Suddenly, major specs of a vehicle, such as power and speed took a back seat, while luxury and leisure took the front seat. Like it or not, we have moved on with this phenomenal journey. So, pack your backs, let’s drive straight into a detailed discussion on automotive sensors.

Flex PCBs in Satellite Applications: Lighter Than the Clouds

We are witnessing intensified race among various space agencies for supremacy over the skies since the past few years. As per reports by the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA), more than 4,500 artificial satellites are orbiting the earth with an increase of 4.87% compared to the previous years. Additionally, the increasing interest for flexible PCBs in satellite applications is attributed to the longer lifecycle and the increased flexibility. The viability of a flex PCBs for satellite applications is dependent on capability PCB design to operate without fault anywhere up to 10 years.
