What Are the Benefits of Box Build Assembly
Written on . Posted in , , , , .
Box Build Assembly Services – What is Involved? A box build assembly is an integrated system built around a printed circuit board (PCB) or set of boards and other modules. This system usually includes an enclosure and wiring, which are used to connect the box build to the next higher assembly. Enclosure design and materials are determined based on the application (indoor / outdoor for instance), heat signature (like for networking and servers) and usage (like personal wearables or tableto…

What are Printed Circuit Boards made from?
Written on . Posted in , , .
When developing printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) it’s important to know what materials are available to handle the PCB’s temperature resistance, adhesion, tensile strength and flexibility. By selecting the proper materials, you can make sure that your PCB works in your specific circumstances. Three Main Types of PCB Materials There are three main types of materials that may be used in a printed circuit board: FR-4. This is the most commonly used material in PCBs. It is a gla…
Why Flex PCBs are Best for Medical Devices and Applications
Written on . Posted in , , .
The medical industry works hard every day to save the lives of children and adults. Thanks to dedicated working professionals, innovative medical devices and advanced technology, people worldwide are living longer. And one of the ways that technology is keeping up is through rigid-flex and flexible printed circuit boards (PCBs). PCBs are the platform for your circuitry, allowing medical devices like heart monitors, blood glucose monitors and IV therapy infusion pumps to work. Frequently, …
What to Expect from the Rigid Flex PCB Prototyping Process
Written on . Posted in , , .
Rigid flex printed circuit boards (PCBs) combine the flexibility of flex circuits with the traditional board functionality of rigid circuits. The end result is a PCB that’s remains flat and stiff where structure is needed, and flexible at others, allowing the board to be folded or flexed to fit into the device. If you’re having a rigid flex PCB created for a specific application, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the customization options that are available. Rigid flex PCBs can be designe…
