PCB Manufacturing

The basic components of a PCB are: the Conducting and Insulating Layers, Soldering Mask, Vias (plated Holes), trace design, and a silk screen for part identification and any information about the board.

PCBs are plated with Solder, Tin, or Gold over Nickel as a resist for etching(removal) away the (unneeded after plating) underlying copper. Matte solder is usually fused to provide a better bonding surface or stripped to bare copper.

PCBs intended for extreme environments often have a conformal coating, which is applied by dipping or spraying after the components have been soldered. The coat prevents corrosion and leakage currents or shorting due to condensation. Conformal coats are usually dips of dilute solutions of silicone rubber, polyurethane, acrylic, or epoxy. Some are engineering plastics sputtered onto the PCB in a vacuum chamber.

Many assembled PCBs are static sensitive, and therefore must be placed in antistatic bags during transport. When handling these boards, the user must be earthed; failure to do this might transmit an accumulated static charge through the board, damaging or destroying it. Even bare boards are sometimes static sensitive. Traces have become so fine that it's quite possible to blow an etch off the board (or change its characteristics) with a static charge. This is especially true on non-traditional PCBs such as MCMs and microwave PCBs.

  
Our Clients Say...

"Thank you for your help on the rush order of 500pc PCB12324130.  That was very nice of you to expedite to us a day ahead.  One again thank you very much."

- Lan, Manconix

"The price was good and delivery excellent.  Looking forward to doing business with you again."

- Mike, Berkely Varitronics Systems

" I thought very seriously about using a China source for the boards but I think it is much better to keep the work local where it is good for our economy and I have an assurance of good quality and responsiveness. 

Thank you very much for your very fine service. You and your crew performed marvelously."

- Virgil, HF Projects

"We just received the batch of boards that you made for us, and they look good.  We were very surprised to get them so soon, and I want to say thanks for the special service that you have given us.  Once again you have exceeded all of our expectations, and we really appreciate it.

I'm sure that there is no one else who would do such work as good and as fast as you.  You are the best!"

- Pete Duncan, The Blodgett Company
