Top 5 Things to Know when Designing a PCB
Written on . Posted in , , .
Building a printed circuit board (PCB) is a complicated task. These boards have a lot of associations between layers, components, and circuitry and they must all be properly handled. Otherwise, the PCB may not function correctly. Fortunately, there are simple practices that PCB designers follow to make the process more accurate, manageable, and efficient. Below are the top five considerations that PCB manufacturers keep in mind when designing a printed circuit board. 1. Component Place…
What are Stitching Vias in Printed Circuit Boards?
Written on . Posted in , , .
Stitching vias, also known as via stitching, are a design practice where a series of vias are strategically placed around the perimeter of a ground plane or a signal trace on a PCB. These vias connect the top and bottom layers of the board, creating a continuous conductive path. The purpose of stitching vias is to enhance the electrical and thermal conductivity of the PCB and to improve signal integrity and reliability, especially in high-frequency and high-speed applications. Let’s learn…
