How to Succeed in PCB Assembly Projects

PCB manufacturing and PCB assembly are two different industry fields, conforming to different IPC and other standards. While PCB manufacturing concerns the fabrication of the bare circuit boards, [...]

PCB Panel Design & Assembly

Rush PCB designs PCB panels or arrays such that the constituent smaller PCBs remain securely attached during manufacturing and assembly. However, our design also allows easy depanelization into [...]

Latest Game – Changers in HDI Boards

The latest development in fabricating PCBs is following the same trend that integrated circuit manufacturers are. They are packing increasing amounts of functionality into smaller spaces. [...]

High-Quality Fine-Pitch PCB Assembly

The electronics industry defines fine-pitch PCB assembly as those with a significantly high number of components per unit area. That means, the components on the board are very close to each [...]

BGA Routing and Impedance Control in HDI PCBs

Designers using BGA or Ball Grid Array ICs need HDI or High-Density Interconnect PCBs to make the most effective use of these high-density packages. Using multiple BGA components, when some of [...]

Generating Printed Circuit Board Documentation

Designers generate ideas that fabricators and assemblers subsequently convert into reality. While it is an important responsibility for fabricators and assemblers to faithfully follow the [...]

Reliability of Automotive PCBs

From being purely mechanical assemblies, automotive vehicles have progressed to include electronic parts. A top brand automotive vehicle today contains about 150 control units consisting mostly [...]

Causes of Warpage in PCBs

What is Warpage For proper placement of SMT components, it is necessary that the PCB remain perfectly flat. For accurate placement, the pick-and-place machine must release the SMT component at [...]

IC Packages — Why the Variety?

Rush PCB, our customers and most others are accustomed to seeing and handling Integrated Circuits or ICs. However, what everyone sees and handles is really the external packaging, as the die or [...]

Component Selection for PCBs – Common Mistakes

A designer uses electronic components for building up the circuit so that it functions properly. Rush PCB recommends dividing the entire exercise into three distinct activities: Component [...]
