All About ELIC PCB Manufacturing

IPC-2226 standards have many standard PCB stackups under them that support HDI PCB routing. These allow routing traces for fine-pitch components like BGA. Most standard HDI PCB stackups use buried and through-hole vias that pass through all layers. They may also use blind/buried microvias along with skip-vias on their surface layers. This allows BGA breakouts […]

All About Irregularly Shaped PCBs

Most PCB designers have designed their boards in mostly rectangular or square shapes. However, when the enclosure is in an irregular shape, they have two choices—to continue with a rectangular/square shape that is considerably smaller than the enclosure or to design irregularly shaped PCBs that closely match the enclosure shape. In the first case, the […]

Challenges of LED PCBs Design

PCBs or Printed Circuit Boards for LEDs or light-emitting diodes are different from other circuit board designs, as the boards must help dissipate the excess heat generated by the LEDs when they are in operation. Although LED PCBs are the foundation of LED lighting systems, one of the core problems in LED PCB design is […]
