How To Prepare Your PCB For SMT Assembly

The electronics industry is evolving at a fast pace, with IoT and wearable devices driving the trend. This calls for smaller PCB that packs more features than before. In these devices, the PCB must be designed for SMT assembly and they should adhere to best design practices to minimize defects in final products. Best Design Practices For SMT Assembly Before you start manufacturing your PCB, do ensure that i ...

What Should You Consider Before Choosing A Low Cost PCB Manufacturer.

As the electronics industry gets increasingly competitive, electronics design companies are constantly on the search for low cost PCB manufacturers. Yet, getting the right fit in a PCB supplier takes more than blindly selecting the cheapest alternatives you found online. Making a wrong decision, especially when it comes to low cost PCB manufacturers can means costly consequences in your production cycle. Re ...

EAGLE: Panelizing made easy

Today I stumble across a neat/new feature in Eagle I haven’t seen before. Prolly in there since early versions 7, but at least it is present in version 7.5.0 (current version at writing is 7.7). Some PCB manufacturers will accept panelized PCB and you can save a few bucks by combining a few small designs into a larger design. This will save cost and the environment. Panelizing is done by machining a slot be ...

Intersil claims to have smallest pico-projector

Description The ISL9307 is an integrated mini Power Management IC (mini-PMIC) ideal for applications for powering low-voltage microprocessor or multiple voltage rails with a battery as an input source, such as a single Li-ion or Li-polymer. ISL9307 integrates two high-efficiency, 3MHz, synchronous step-down converters (DCD1 and DCD2) and two low-input, low-dropout linear regulators (LDO1 and LDO2). The 3MHz ...

Do you already have solved a connection to a PCB?

Connectors of the PV, SV and SH series are available in a huge amount of versions and sizes, that´s why you´ll certainly find here a suitable type for you. A very frequent requirement for a simple and reliable connection of wires to a PCB is actual about as long as the world knows plated copper boards. There are many solutions and producers, thus a choice of suitable type is usually a question of your prefe ...

Circuit Board Design for Beginners

We live in an exciting time where we see a resurgence in electronics as a hobby. Mass production has wiped out a generation or two of kids learning to build radios from scratch with their mom or dad. In the good old days, not sure when, you had companies like Heathkit walk you through building a full size color TV at home, for example. “Yes, I made that!” you’d proudly exclaim to yourself after hours of wor ...

Part 2: Make the PCB from your design – Almost there…

OK, further to Part 1 of this blog where we created a schematic, now it’s time to move to the PCB. If you still don't have your license, get a trail from here: Professional PCB design tool | CircuitStudio   And some more information from here: https://www.element14.com/community/docs/DOC-73745?ICID=designctr-devtools-info   Open up the project (well, if it’s not open already..) and click on “Proje ...

eight video channels ST chip protects from ESD attack

The HSP061-8M16 is an 8-channel ESD array with a rail to rail architecture designed specifically for the protection of high speed differential lines. The ultra-low variation of the capacitance ensures very low influence on signal-skew. The large bandwidth and the low reflection make it compatible with 3.4 Gbps. The device is packaged in μQFN-16L with a 400 μm pitch, which minimizes the PCB area. Key Feature ...

PIC Based Car Battery Voltage Monitoring System

In this project we are going to make a PIC based Car Battery Monitoring system on PCB. Here we have designed a PCB using EASYEDA online PCB simulator and designer. This Car Battery Monitoring Circuit is used to monitor the power of Car Battery by just plugging it into the power outlet on the dashboard of a car. The PCB also has the option to use it as Voltage Measurement tool or Voltmeter without using USB ...
