Tips and Tricks for Efficient PCB Layout

From the Experts at Sonic Manufacturing Technologies Printed circuit board (PCB) design is an essential part of electronics design. Having an efficient design layout minimizes the chances of errors and reduces the chances of having to redo the board. Plus, a well-designed PCB layout lessens the probability of signal interference, EMI, and crosstalk. Sonic Manufacturing Technologies understands the pressures to bring your products to the market quickly, which means there’s no room for error....

Partner with Sonic Manufacturing for Electronic Prototype Assembly Services

A prototype is an early sample, model or release of a product created to test a concept or process. It’s primarily used to evaluate a new design before a company invests in mass production. Prototypes often fail, and this shows designers where the defects are. The team then can ‘go back to the drawing board’ and refine the design. Prototypes avoid wasted time, money, and headaches and can even save lives. In printed circuit board (PCB) design, a prototype is the first sample that’s built to...

How Sonic is Making PCBs Safer for the Environment

Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are essential components used in electronic devices. However, the PCB manufacturing process involves using various chemicals and materials, some of which may pose a risk to the environment. Some of the materials used in PCBs can contaminate water, soil, and air. These chemicals include lead, mercury, cadmium, and brominated flame retardants. Furthermore, when PCBs are disposed of in landfills, they can leach into the groundwater and cause contamination. Sonic...

Design Considerations for Renewable Energy PCBs

Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are crucial to many machines and devices in the energy industry. As with other applications, PCBs connect electronic components, allowing power and signals to flow to other devices. The energy industry continues to evolve, which means machinery becomes more complicated as well. Due to this, the machines require high-quality PCBs to ensure they work properly. Sonic Manufacturing Technologies is proud to serve the clean and renewable technology industry, a rapidly...
