Do you know all about PCB assembly?
PCB, also known as printed circuit boards have a major role to play in order to let a device function properly. A printed circuit board has a non-conductive material that has several printed patterns on it. These patterns indicate direction in which the electrons will move across the surface of the board.
Most of the industries make use of these boards to manufacture electronic gadgets. Industries such as military needs circuit boards to install them in rockets and missiles. Other industries such as aerospace and telecommunications also have need for these boards.
Manufacturing circuit boards is a process that consumes time, and is not at all simple. Installing components such as transistors, resistors and capacitors are part of PCB assembly. However, the components installed vary from one electronic gadget to the other manufactured by the electronics industry.
PCB assembly services are different from PCB manufacturing. Manufacturing a circuit board involves multiple processes. Creating a prototype is part of manufacturing. On the other hand, PCB assembly refers to the method of attaching several components on the board in order to make it a fully functional circuit board.
There are several methods of attaching components on the board. All the methods have their own advantages and disadvantages. The experts creating these boards take into account several factors to select an appropriate technique for creating different types of circuitries. The factors include type of circuit board, cost and the industry that needs PCB.
Types of assemblies
• Through hole construction
In this method, soldering components on the board takes place with the help of holes on the board. The insertion is either done manually or with help of special equipment. This assembly technique has replaced point to point assembly and earlier, considered as one of the best techniques for installing components on the board.
• Surface mount construction
This technique involves directly installing of several components on the board. The size of components installed is smaller than the components installed with the help of through hole construction.
Surface mount assembly has several advantages over traditional through hole assembly. The significant benefits are as follows:
1. The size of the components is small.
2. Offer much faster and simple assembly.
3. Both sides of the board work the best for placing components.
Besides this, there are other techniques also such as mechanical assembly and cable and harness assembly. Depending upon purpose of board, the experts select the best technique from a wide range of options.
The main purpose of PCB assembly services is to create a fully functional printed circuit board so that different industries can install these boards in the device that they manufacture.
