The world of electronics has reached a new dimension in terms of preciseness. That is now occurring in PCB microelectronics manufacturing with the onset of infinitesimal measurement and calibration of a variety of assembly tasks associated with PCB microelectronics. Recall from our earlier writings that PCB microelectronics manufacturing is a companion to traditional SMT manufacturing, […]

Electronics manufacturing services providers who use conventional printed circuit board assembly and manufacturing models are scrambling to augment their production facilities to handle increasingly smaller boards like those used for IoT devices. At today’s advanced printed circuit board (PCB) houses, savvy leaders are homing in on newer technologies and merging conventional surface-mount technology manufacturing with […]

Microelectronics manufacturing is the companion of SMT manufacturing and forms PCB hybrid manufacturing. Tools for SMT manufacturing have been around for a long time and have proven their value. Now, with microelectronics, new and different types of high-powered laser microscopes are populating the microelectronics assembly and manufacturing area to provide highly effective inspection and calibration. […]

Wire bonding as a central focus for PCB microelectronics manufacturing demands considerable attention as part of the overall PCB hybrid manufacturing. In particular, wire bond loops and their pull strength for reliability and integrity are critically important. Those wire bond loops must be accurately and correctly calculated, formed and executed on the microelectronics manufacturing floor […]

Today, a growing number of OEMs have a sound understanding of how significant PCB hybrid manufacturing is for their new generation of products. That’s because their customers in the medical electronics, mil/aero, commercial, and industrial sectors are demanding greater electronics functionality in smaller, portable devices. This means those devices are based on smaller printed circuit […]

Today, hybrid PCB manufacturing is making greater inroads into our industry, which is the marriage of traditional SMT manufacturing together with microelectronics and wire bonding. In many cases, the OEM working with EMS providers doesn’t fully understand the nuances of effective wire bonding and related failures. What has to be considered with new hybrid manufacturing […]

There is no big secret. PCB manufacturing is changing now more than ever before in its long history. Initially, it involved through-hole assembly and manufacturing with the most notable Intel 8086 motherboard. Later, through-hole and surface mount technology (SMT) began merging and sustained a long product cycle. But today, PCB manufacturing is rapidly evolving to […]

A number of new terms are entering into today’s PCB discussions. Most of these terms involve those PCBs that continue to shrink, use smaller packaged devices, and have limited real estate. The term, “interposer” is among the newest ones joining such other new terms as PCB hybrid manufacturing, microelectronics, die attach, wire bonding, and others. […]

Over time, PCB manufacturing has evolved from the traditional through hole, to through hole combined with SMT, and today, a growing number of PCBs are assembled with a combination of SMT and microelectronics or bare die wire bonded onto a substrate or the PCB, itself. Die attach is an integral part of microelectronics. In 2019 […]

Smaller PCBs, including rigid-flex circuits, call for die attach using one of three methodologies, depending on the application. Technologies that for years were the sole domain of semiconductor manufacturing have now migrated into today’s printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing processes and flows. These are not the old, traditional PCBs that we’ve grown up with; instead, […]
