Various types of printed circuit board designs.

Category: Business & Economy

The design of a printed circuit board is a task that needs to be done with utmost care as it is the most important part of the device which is used to mechanically support electronic components which have their connection leads soldered onto copper pads in surface mount applications. There are various design tools available in the industry for the task of designing printed circuit boards and the altium PCB design tool is considered to be most efficient of them all. The design of a printed circuit board is extremely complex as it may consist of thru-hole components on the top or component side, a mix of thru-hole and surface mount on the top side only, a mix of thru-hole and surface mount components on the top side and surface mount components on the bottom or circuit side, or surface mount components on the top and bottom sides of the board. Hence you can see that without the help of an efficient circuit board design tool, it is difficult for the engineer or designer to perform the task efficiently and without errors. Once the design is complete, the board is used to electrically connect various components with copper traces and separate leads for each one of them. The most common type of printed circuit board designs include single sided with copper pads and traces on one side of the board only, double sided with copper pads and traces on the top and bottom sides of the board, or multilayer designs with copper pads and traces on top and bottom of board with a variable number of internal copper layers with traces and connections.For more details visit our site: http://www.enventureonline.com/
