Get An Understanding of Wire Bonding Reliability

Wire bonding has been inextricably linked to semiconductor assembly and connecting the chip with its package. Today, wire bonding technology is used in PCB assembly simply because OEM demands are for increasingly smaller products and the boards they’re based on. Products like IoT devices and wearables are based on small rigid or a combination of […]

Get your wires straight for IoT

Technical terms are used extensively — and sometimes misused — when it comes to IoT devices and the technologies they are rapidly absorbing. One such term is microelectronics, spoken and written about since the day the transistor was invented. Today, microelectronics takes on another name — namely wire bonding, which again isn’t a new technology […]

Taking Another Look At ISO 13485

ISO 13485 is about potential risks involved and mitigating them during and after the building of medical products. It is a specific ISO standard serving as a comprehensive management system for the design and manufacture of medical devices. Like other ISO standards, its focus is on continuous improvement in process and quality systems. Also, a […]

PADS accelerates IoT PCB design

IoT is the hottest topic in the marketplace right now. It’s coming into virtually every person’s life in terms of equipment and devices being used. In effect, IoT is automation coming to your doorstep, your home, car and coming into every workplace. Printed circuit board (PCB) design software, more commonly known as “tools,” is the […]

Stay Up with Thermal Profiling For Smaller and Smaller PCBs

When you think printed circuit boards (PCBs) cannot get any smaller, they continue to do so, especially in this day and age when IoT devices are springing up everywhere. See Fig. 1 for examples of denser and smaller PCBs. The smaller the PCB, the more challenges associated with creating the correct thermal profiles. It’s especially […]

Take a New Look at AOI

Automated optical inspection (AOI) systems represent a prime example of the valuable and effective equipment demanded on today’s assembly floor. The foremost reason is the extraordinarily small component packaging and ever-shrinking PCB size that require the most sophisticated AOI solutions possible to detect flaws and defects during the assembly process. AOI is well suited for […]

ATE PCB Design Not Your Typical PCB Design

Conventional PCB design substantially differs from the design of a high-speed automatic test equipment (ATE) PCB. It’s better known to semiconductor companies as a “test board” that tests and verifies the functionality and operation of a newly developed chip like an advanced system-on-a-chip, FPGA, µP or other highly prized integrated circuit. The device-under-test or DUT […]

Key Design Steps for DUT Areas on ATE PCBs

An automatic test equipment (ATE) PCB (a.k.a. a test board) is at the heart of all major test activities targeted at verifying a specific semiconductor chip’s functionality. High-speed automatic test equipment (ATE) printed circuit boards (PCBs) are often called “a different beast” compared to conventional PCBs. This is because a lot of careful design attention […]

Anatomy of next-gen IoT PCBs

Next-generation IoT printed circuit boards are taking on a completely different anatomy than conventional PCBs thanks to a group of technologies that savvy IoT PCB houses are deploying. The whole idea behind these technologies is to meet the size, performance, reliability and cost demands of advanced IoT devices. These technologies include: High-density interconnect (HDI), Micro […]
