A careful look at RF for your IoT PCBs

IoT devices remain in their infancy, with a lot of questions being asked and experimenting going on. Radio frequency, or RF, is one technology that IoT companies and startups are dialing into to advance state-of-the-art IoT and, in doing so, increasing profit margins for their IoT products. In some cases, there are a lot of […]

Pump up high reliability for IoT PCBs

The demand for and technology of IoT devices are rapidly passing the consumer market and landing squarely in medical electronics, IT/enterprise, industrial and military markets. And those IoT markets are experiencing dramatic growth. However, those markets are highly demanding when it comes to high reliability. IoT devices in these instances must be reliable to the […]

Fill Up Through Holes in IoT Rigid-Flex and Flex Circuits

Requirements for Class III IoT devices are very specific. IoT applications falling into this category include mil/aero and medical electronics. In the assembly process for any type of PCB, either surface mount technology or through hole is used to place components onto an IoT rigid-flex or flex circuit. As the name implies, surface mount is […]

Three types of IoT PCBs: Class I, Class II and Class III

Just like the big boys (meaning conventional printed circuit boards), IoT PCBs fall under the categories of Class I, II and III. Earlier, I noted that Class I IoT PCBs are pretty routine; those end applications cover virtually every consumer wearable you can think of. Class I IoT PCBs don’t demand a great measure of […]

Get a Grip on Wearable/IoT PCB Terminology

Wearable/IoT PCB technology is ushering in new design terminology and steps that need to be factored in. Two particular areas that need to be understood deals with (1) low and high modulus boards and (2) flex circuit bending. Board modulus refers to its structure; low modulus means a softer structure, while high modulus refers to […]
