How TDR Impedance Measurements Work

How TDR Impedance Measurements Work

Measuring impedance and checking for faults and discontinuities on different points of a PCB trace is not a cakewalk. This is because impedance is an AC property and cannot be measured like resistance. Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR) impedance measurements are...

Why Use Thermal Pads in PCB Design and Manufacturing

Why Use Thermal Pads in PCB Design and Manufacturing

With the advancement of technology and miniaturization of devices, the heat generated per unit area on a PCB has increased significantly. Components such as ICs generate more heat when running at high speeds. To dissipate this heat away from the PCB we typically use a...

Laser Direct Imaging and its Advantages

Laser Direct Imaging and its Advantages

When manufacturing a circuit board, one of the most critical aspects is printing and etching the layout on the copper-clad laminates. The imaging process is central to creating a PCB layout and defines the circuit traces. While the conventional imaging process needs a...

What is a Prepreg in PCB Manufacturing?

What is a Prepreg in PCB Manufacturing?

As simple as it is, a prepreg is nothing but an insulation layer. Prepreg is a dielectric material that is sandwiched between two cores or between a core and a copper foil in a PCB, to provide the required insulation. You can call it a binding material as well. It...

How We Manufacture Controlled Impedance PCBs

How We Manufacture Controlled Impedance PCBs

While manufacturing a PCB, controlled impedance can be achieved through specific dielectric thickness and by providing the target ohms on each layer. The factors that influence impedance are the PCB materials’ dielectric, the trace thickness, width, and height from...
