At some level of circuit complexity, turning to an architecture with blind and buried vias will result in better yield and lower cost than would a through-hole design. In this presentation, we discuss several design examples and illustrate the relative costs and benefits of different architectural approaches.
For PCB designers and engineers, optimization is key. Optimization of time, cost, and even effort. Sierra strives to provide customers with high-quality PCBs and excellent service. This includes best practice tips for designers. When designing your next circuit board, you need to watch out for some crucial cost drivers.
Are errors in your BOM causing delays? Are your component quantities and reference designators mismatched? Sierra has a free tool that will speed up your entire PCB process. Continue reading “Introducing Sierra’s BOM Checker!”
On May 17 and 18, Sierra Circuits hosted its first workshop at the Levi’s Stadium. PCB expert Robert Feranec led the two-day training on PCB Board Layout Design Engineering. Watch our video from the event!

Annular rings are one of the biggest concerns of PCB designers. You know that you may place your via right in the middle of the pad in the design files, but it just does not mean that you will 100 percent avoid tangencies, or even worse, breakouts. Let’s talk about annular rings, shall we?
