Impedance Control on PCBs

Sep 29, 2021|General

Impedance controls for PCBs ensure the board can transmit signals with little to no loss. Because these boards work on alternating current, you need impedance parameters to construct the board and then test it for verification. While impedance is a well-known physical property in the electronics field, the steps that go into its control aren’t so commonly known. Here is the...

Flying Probes & Testing: Everything You Need to Know

Sep 29, 2021|General

Since the early 2000s, printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing has shifted heavily towards flying probes. Primarily driven by the desire to lower production costs and implement more modern automated technology, this shift resulted in flying probe tests becoming the preferred method of in-circuit testing (ICT) for many fabricators as well as buyers. Creating PCBs is a complicated and time-consuming process that...
