EETimes: Wearable PCB Designs Require Attention to Fundamentals
In the absence of printed circuit board standards in wearable IoT electronics, hardware developers need to pay close attention to fundamentals.
Because of their small size and dimensions, few printed circuit board standards exist for the growing wearable Internet of Things market. Until they emerge, we’ll have to depend on what we have learned about board level development and manufacturing experience and carefully consider how they apply to the unique challenges emerging there. Three areas we should be paying particularly close attention to are: board surface materials, RF/microwave design, and RF transmission lines.
