How can you bring a new consumer electronic product to life? It starts by recognizing a consumer need and developing a possible solution to that need. With the idea of a new product in mind, it’s then a matter of figuring out how to manufacture it with adequate quality and profitability.
Step 1: Assemble a Prototype
When you’re developing a new electronic product, you must first find out if you can build what you have in mind. That means developing a proof-of-concept prototype.
Protect your PCBA with the best surface coating based on your application and board specifications. Learn more here.
One of the most essential steps in the design of your printed circuit boards (PCBs) is the surface finish. The PCB surface finish you choose will help protect the copper circuitry from corrosion. It also provides a solderable surface. You can work with your PCB manufacturer to determine which surface finish is right for your needs.
Here are the most common types of…
Once assembled, PCB’s should be protected from handling, moisture, static and human interaction. Here are a few ways to extend the life of your stored printed circuit boards.
It’s not always easy choosing a printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturer, but your patience and careful research will pay off. The right PCB manufacturer will provide you with a quality product that is made from durable materials. But even if you get the best PCB on the market, it still won’t last forever.
