    Understanding PCB Manufacturing: CNC Drilling

    One of the key processes in a PCB manufacturing facility is the CNC Drilling Department.

    Holes are drilled in PCBs for two main reasons:

    Customer requirements.- component mounting and to promote conductivity between Cu layers (vias)

    Manufacturing requirements.- to ensure precise registration and to help the operator ensure each drill has successfully completed the tool path. 

    Quantum Computer Developer Chooses Omni for Precision Manufacturing

    The technical expertise needed to build the world's first commercial quantum computer is immense, which is why D-Wave Systems Inc. turned to Omni Circuit Boards to help them take up the challenge.

    PCB Finishes - White Tin, Immersion Tin, Immersion White Tin and Whiskers

    Mention Immersion White Tin around sales people from PCB shops and Tin Whiskers will inevitably be part of the topic.

    They may not feel comfortable down mouthing the competition in public but a process? Well that’s fair game. What the salespeople don’t know or won’t tell you is the Immersion Tin used as a finish for circuit boards completely dissolves in the solder used in the circuit board assembly process.

    4 Tips for Saving on Circuit Board Prototyping Costs

    1) Thermal and antipad (solder mask) clearances

    Considering thermals and antipad (solder mask)clearances on the power &/or ground plane layers of multilayer boards - if layer to layer registration, tolerances for hole size, location, film expansion and registration have not been taken into account then manufacturing will experience high reject rates and increased costs.
