Whitepapers

ResourceThumb-smarties1

PCB DESIGN FOR SMARTIES

Four Strategies for Becoming Your Own, Best PCB Designer. PCB Design for Smarties shares our expertise on the PCB process, helping you move forward to your next project confident there will be smooth sailing from design through manufacturing.

ResourceThumb-smarties2

PCB PROTOTYPING FOR SMARTIES

Best Practices for Ensuring a Smooth, Successful Manufacturing Process. Second in our 4-part series of white papers, Prototyping for Smarties examines how to align your prototyping strategy with business requirements. 

ResourceThumb-smarties3

MANUFACTURABILITY FOR SMARTIES

How to avoid common manufacturing 
pitfalls that can cause delay, create cost overruns, and impact quality. 

 

ResourceThumb-smarties4

PCB ASSEMBLY FOR SMARTIES

How best practices at every stage of the process help you avoid common pitfalls and ensure success. Our For Smarties series concludes with the fun part - PCB assembly.

ResourceThumb-GuidelinesManufacturability

GUIDELINES FOR ENSURING PCB MANUFACTURABILITY

The rules of PCB design have changed little over the years, but the demands on the boards themselves keep increasing. The need for smaller, more complex boards used in smartphones, tablets, and other handheld devices translates into less real estate for greater functionality.

ResourceThumb-RightManuf

FINDING THE RIGHT MANUFACTURER FOR YOUR DESIGN

To receive a quality PCB, you need an efficient design and a manufacturer capable of producing it. This paper will examine the challenges and best practices associated with matching your design requirements to a manufacturer's capabilities.

 

 

ResourceThumb-LeanManuf

HOW LEAN MANUFACTURING ADDS VALUE TO PCB PRODUCTION

In this paper, we will explore the impact 
of Lean on the PCB industry, including how it may provide competitive 
advantage to those organizations making Lean a key part of their culture.

ResourceThumb-UsingStencils

STENCILS SIMPLIFY THE  PCB ASSEMBLY PROCESS

Where is the gap between hand 
assembly and outsourced assembly? 
And where does the purchase of a 
stencil fit in bridging that gap?

 

ResourceThumb-ValueofQuality

THE VALUE OF PCB MANUFACTURING QUALITY DURING PROTOTYPE

The number of engineering changes is also a top challenge of PCB design. A strategy that enables designers to obtain early insight into behavior, allows them to catch problems earlier in the process.

 

ResourceThumb-DomesticVsOffshore

domestic Versus Offshore PCB Manufacturing

The component costs of offshoring have increased along with the risks that go along with it, challenging established manufacturing trends.
