PCB manufacturing process:

Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are used in electronics to support and connect electrical components. Connections are made using conductive pathways, also called traces, etched from copper sheets laminated onto a non-conductive substrate. The PCB manufacturing process requires much effort, which is why most companies choose to outsource it instead.

About PCBs

PCBs were invented in 1936 by Austrian engineer Paul Eisler. Eisler first used PCBs in his radio sets. Later on, PCBs evolved and were used to make rugged radio transmitters used by the US in World War II. After the war, PCBs were re-manufactured for commercial use.


Generally, PCBs are composed of 24 conductive layers separated and supported by layers of insulating material (substrates) laminated together with heat, pressure and sometimes vacuum. The most typical substrate used in single-sided PCBs is the FR-2 (synthetic resin bonded paper). The FR-2 type is cheap and easy to drill, but is prone to cracking and is not good for making plated through hole boards. Meanwhile, double sided and multilayer boards use the FR-4 type, made from fiberglass-type of material.

1. Silk screen printing – uses etch-resistant inks to protect the copper foil. Subsequent etching removes the unwanted copper.
2. Photoengraving – uses a photo mask and chemical etching to remove the copper foil from the substrate.
3. PCB milling – uses a two- or three-axis mechanical milling system to mill away the copper foil from the substrate.

Lamination and drilling

Multi-layer PCBs are formed by bonding together separately etched thin boards. After this, holes (vias) are normally drilled through the PCB using drill bits made from solid tungsten carbide. The holes are then plated to form plated-through holes that electrically connect the conducting layers of the PCB.

Exposed conductor plating, coating, and soldering

Exposed pads and lands to which components will be mounted are typically plated, because bare copper oxidizes quickly and can be difficult to solder. The solder is usually a tin-lead alloy, but new solder compounds are now used to comply with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive, which restricts the use of lead.

Screen printing

Text and picture labels may be printed on the surface of the PCB using screen printing. Screen print is also known as the silk screen, or, in one sided PCBs, the red print. Creating a PCB

All about nuts and bolts...
D. Murali

Printed circuit boards, and `populating' them, form the crux of the issue in this interesting case.

THE recent issue of Excise Law Times reports the case of Jolly Electrical Industries that came up before the Customs, Excise and Service Tax Appellate Tribunal (CESTAT), Mumbai.

Jolly had imported parts of photocopiers, microfilm reader printers, microfilm cameras and paper shredders.

But the Customs Department confiscated all these saying that the import was of `complete machines in SKD condition', not `parts' as the company had claimed in the import documents.

Jolly submitted that it manufactured electronic products in Vadodara; that it used the imported parts for manufacture of finished goods after adding components sourced from domestic sources; and that it paid Excise Duty when the assembled machines were cleared.

For the Department, however, there was a guidance from a conference of the Collectors of Customs: "When all the packages are imported in the very same consignments and the assembling of the machine involves only sample operations like fixing devices (screws, nuts, bolts, and so on) or by riveting or welding, the goods so imported should be classifiable as a complete machine."

Jolly protested by pointing out that PCBs (or, printed circuit boards) were `incomplete' and that these were critical components.

The Commissioner said that the PCBs were `populated'. The company said that the PCBs were `indeed populated' but added that it had to "further populate the PCBs before these could be fixed together with other parts, to make a functional machine."

Therefore, the Department was of the view that the imported PCBs were already populated and that whatever Jolly did in its factory was of `minor' nature.

For its part, Jolly claimed that it had the necessary machinery for populating the PCBs, and that the value of domestic components came to 30 to 35 per cent of the assembled machines, as verified by the Central Excise officials.

How Products are Made: How is a printed circuit board made?

A printed circuit board, or PCB, is a self-contained module of interconnected electronic components found in devices ranging from common beepers, or pagers, and radios to sophisticated radar and computer systems. The circuits are formed by a thin layer of conducting material deposited, or "printed," on the surface of an insulating board known as the substrate. Individual electronic components are placed on the surface of the substrate and soldered to the interconnecting circuits. Contact fingers along one or more edges of the substrate act as connectors to other PCBs or to external electrical devices such as on-off switches. A printed circuit board may have circuits that perform a single function, such as a signal amplifier, or multiple functions.

There are three major types of printed circuit board construction: single-sided, double-sided, and multi-layered. Single-sided boards have the components on one side of the substrate. When the number of components becomes too much for a single-sided board, a double-sided board may be used. Electrical connections between the circuits on each side are made by drilling holes through the substrate in appropriate locations and plating the inside of the holes with a conducting material. The third type, a multi-layered board, has a substrate made up of layers of printed circuits separated by layers of insulation. The components on the surface connect through plated holes drilled down to the appropriate circuit layer. This greatly simplifies the circuit pattern.

Components on a printed circuit board are electrically connected to the circuits by two different methods: the older "through hole technology" and the newer "surface mount technology." With through hole technology, each component has thin wires, or leads, which are pushed through small holes in the substrate and soldered to connection pads in the circuits on the opposite side. Gravity and friction between the leads and the sides of the holes keeps the components in place until they are soldered. With surface mount technology, stubby J-shaped or L-shaped legs on each component contact the printed circuits directly. A solder paste consisting of glue, flux, and solder are applied at the point of contact to hold the components in place until the solder is melted, or "reflowed," in an oven to make the final connection. Although surface mount technology requires greater care in the placement of the components, it eliminates the time-consuming drilling process and the space-consuming connection pads inherent with through hole technology. Both technologies are used today.

Two other types of circuit assemblies are related to the printed circuit board. An integrated circuit, sometimes called an IC or microchip, performs similar functions to a printed circuit board except the IC contains many more circuits and components that are electrochemically "grown" in place on the surface of a very small chip of silicon. A hybrid circuit, as the name implies, looks like a printed circuit board, but contains some components that are grown onto the surface of the substrate rather than being placed on the surface and soldered.Contact

Location of the the PCB (zip)

In electronics, printed circuit boards, or PCBs, are used to mechanically support and electrically connect electronic components using conductive pathways, or traces, etched from copper sheets laminated onto a non-conductive substrate. Alternative names are printed wiring board (PWB),and etched wiring board. Populating the board with electronic components forms a printed circuit assembly (PCA), also known as a printed circuit board assembly (PCBA).

PCBs are rugged, inexpensive, and can be highly reliable. They require much more layout effort and higher initial cost than either wire-wrapped or point-to-point constructed circuits, but are much cheaper, faster, and consistent in high volume production. Much of the electronics industry's PCB design, assembly, and quality control needs are set by standards that are published by the IPC organization.completion of the PCB, electronic components are attached to form the assembly. These components are attached by inserting them through holes, mounting them on the surface, and soldering. Afterwards, they are subject to tests again. If the tests fail, the components are going to be replaced.

Protection and packaging
To protect the printed circuit board against harsh environmental conditions, they should have a conformal coat that is applied by spraying or dipping them after attaching the components. The coat aids in preventing leakage currents, corrosion, and shortening. The coat is made of wax or a diluted solution of polyurethane, epoxy, acrylic, or silicone rubber.

Finally, when transporting PCBs, they should be in antistatic bags and the person handling them should be earthed to avoid static electricity from damaging them. Circuit board manufacturing companies like Almatron practice these safety measures to ensure high quality printed circuit boards.

Good Answers: 3 PCB Populating Challenge

I've got three identical prototype PCBs to be populated. Jim can populate one of these PCBs in three hours. Pam beats him by far and can populate one of these in two hours. Now, if I give the job to Pam and Jim as a team, what is the minimum time I'll have to wait for my three PCBs to be populated?



Let's see between them they can do 5 boards in 6 hours, right? So that means they can do 3 boards in 3/5*6 = 216 minutes.

6 hours. Have Pam populate all the boards (3 boards x 2 hours) and task Jim with caring for Pam (gathering and providing water, food, etc) while she works.

Jim's labour is not compensated, so your production costs are materials, labour (Pam's only) and operational overhead.

That has been the model used in most capitalist countries the world over for the last 100 years.
