This guide is here to help you understand the difference between SMT and THT, so you can choose the best method for your next project.
With technological advances and changing market trends, there has been a growing movement towards silicon carbide (SiC) and system-on-a-chip (SoC) designs.
Rigid-flex PCBs use both rigid and flexible substrates, enabling the electronic engineer to connect multiple layers of flexible and printed subcircuits.
It is difficult to protect each key signal from all noise intrusions, but this must be done to design an effective PCB assembly.
We will review what castellations are, why they get used, and several design considerations for castellated edges.
We’ll walk you through the types of documentation your project requires, and how better documentation can speed up your PCBA project development.

This short blog post covers design strategies for coping with and dissipating excess heat.
The production validation test (PVT) stage is a key milestone to proving your new PCBA project design can successfully run at full production volumes.
A good PCBA project manager can make or break a project. Without the right tools at their disposal, even the best project manager can become overwhelmed.
Electrical and mechanical automated design occur simultaneously reducing possible validation gaps when two separate design efforts happen independently.
Your PCBA prototyping success hinges on adhering to a comprehensive final checklist designed to close out open items from the design.
An electronics engineer job is to make sure documentation is clean, up to date, and complete, which keeps production online and mitigates challenges.
