When are Flex Circuits the Right Solution?
Written on . Posted in , , , , .
Flexible printed circuit boards (PCBs) are often able to solve packaging issues when rigid PCBs can’t and are among the top PCB trends of 2021. They can help you manufacture a wide range of devices from watches to robotic arms. In fact, the global market for flexible PCBs is projected to grow by more than 11% by 2025. Whether you need to meet partial or full flexing requirements, it’s critical to find a flexible PCB tailored to your manufacturing needs. This brings us to an important questio…
Why is Supply Chain Management Important for PCBA Contractors?
Written on . Posted in , , .
In most printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs), every component is critical to its performance.  The process used to source, purchase and schedule approved components has an impact on the final build’s time to customer, as well as possibly its quality. Across the world, there is continued growth in the manufacturing base of PCBAs as much as 6% over the next two years. In this blog, we’ll discuss why supply chain management is now more important than ever for PCBA contractors. 3 …
PCB vs. PCBA – What’s the Difference?
Written on . Posted in , , .
PCBs and PCBAs are both necessary components of electronic devices. While their names are similar, they are two distinct items. What is the difference – and which do you need? What is a PCB? A PCB (printed circuit board) is typically made from fiberglass, composite epoxy, or another laminate material, onto which microprocessor chips, transistors, and other electronic components are connected. However, they do not contain any of the components that connect to the board. The conductive p…

5 Critical PCBA Cost Factors
Not taking PCBA cost factors into account before going into production could be hurting your bottom line and hindering business growth. In the short term, prohibitive small order PCBA costs can prevent innovative concepts from ever reaching the prototype stage. Over the long term, untamed PCBA costs can sink your products’ profit margins. It pays to be aware of what drives PCBA cost factors before you start development. The 5 Key PCBA Cost Factors The 5 biggest PCBA cost factors …
