Engineer’s Guide to PCB Manufacturing and Intellectual Property

The theft of a company's PCB design has consequences beyond the loss of innovation effort. It is possible for a company to face serious financial and reputational damage as a result of illegally replicated products, and even to go bankrupt. It is essential for engineers who design PCBAs to understand how to protect their innovations. As part of this white paper, we discuss the foundations of IP protection for PCBAs, including the role that cloud-based PCB manufacturing can play in securing IP. Among the topics covered are:

  • The importance of PCBA IP protection
  • Intellectual property laws: the four pillars
  • IP-vulnerable data sets
  • IP protection during design and manufacturing
  • How cloud manufacturing maintains IP security
