What are the common terminologies used for Printed Circuit Boards?

There are lots of terminologies that are used while dealing with PCB’s. We have put a list together to help knowing what the key ones are. Active Components: This term refers to a type o component that is dependent on the flow direction of any electrical current. Annular ring: This is a copper ring around a plated through holes in a PCB. There are different types of Annular rings but… Read More »What are the common terminologies used for Printed Circuit Boards?

Supporting projects to help produce Ventilators in this critical time.

Exception PCB has been approached by several customers to help produce PCB’s for their ventilator projects. We received data for one project at 9:13am on Friday 27th March and we delivered these products at 9:30pm on Saturday 28th March. A phenomenal achievement that wouldn’t have happened without the support from our employees. Supported Projects so far: PCB’s for the New Prototype Ventilator Portable Paramedic Ventilators New Prototype Ventilator. Find out… Read More »Supporting projects to help produce Ventilators in this critical time.

Sports Relief 2020

We would like to thank all employee’s and friends/family of employee’s who took part in our fundraising for Sports Relief.  We raised £357.32 from our 5 aside football match and our donate £1 and wear red to work See our 5-a-side blog post here. 

5-a-side Football for Sports Relief

On Wednesday 11th March Exception PCB put on their Kit to participate in a 5-a-side Football game to raise money for Sports Relief.  With a few short, Lisa Trust who works in Production Control stepped up and agreed to be in goal instead of being a supporter. Technical Sales Director, Mike Devine got his ref kit on to ensure things were fair even if his head height did change throughout… Read More »5-a-side Football for Sports Relief



10 Facts about PCB’s

Why are they green? The majority of PCB’s are a green colour. The green colour that you see on the PCB is actually just the colour of the solder masks that is showing through the glass epoxy. You don’t have to have green it can be a different colour for example, orange, blue or yellow. So, why the green? The green colour is believed to have been used as the… Read More »

What’s the Difference Between Single and Double-Sided Printed Circuit Boards?

You can likely guess what the significant difference is between these two types of PCBs based on their names. Single-sided layer boards have just one layer of base materials, known as a substrate. A double-sided PCB has more than a single layer board but fewer than a multi-layer. Like the single-sided variation, they have one substrate layer but the difference is that they have a layer of conductive metal on… Read More »

Why Develop a Prototype PCB?

It may seem like another step making the process longer but in the long run it can save you time and money and result in a better final product. When developing a new PCB design, you will likely go through design alterations. You need to be able to test these quickly in order to complete production in a timely manner. What are the benefits of having a Prototype? ·        Prototyping… Read More »

What types of Printed Circuit Boards can you get?

Single-Sided PCBs (Single Layer) A single-layer or single-sided PCB is one that is made out of a single layer of base material or substrate. One side is coated with a thin layer of metal. Copper is the most common coating due to how well it functions as an electrical conductor. Once the copper base playing is applied, a protective solder mask is usually applied, followed by the last silk-screen to… Read More »
