Production capabilities

Production capabilities

When designing a PCB layout, engineer should know perfectly the technological capabilities of production where the PCB will be produced. Compliance of layout with the technological standards ensures the quality and reliability of finished PCBs. Especially it is very important in case of series production of PCBs. To secure your orders we strongly recommend to check and follow the technological parameters given below.

For your convenience, we put the most important technological parameters into the table:

1 It is possible to make thicker copper on demand.
2 Other materials on demand.
3 Other colours on demand.
4 For copper thickness 9 μm and 18 μm.
5 (Pad size – hole size)/2
6 It is possble to use laser drilling on demand.

Here comes the golden rule: in the PCB design one should use the recommended parameters wherever it is possible instead of limit values. Limit values should be used only when there is no other way.

In other words, if after completing the layout there is still a place to widen or increase some tracks, spaces or vias diameters it is better to do so, of course if it is not in conflict with the electrical properties of the circuit. Such an approach to the layout design allows to improve the PCB reliability and makes it more cost effective.
