Why Use Flex & Flex-Rigid Technology

At Exception PCB we are supporting more and more customers who are wanting to migrate to Flex & Flex-Rigid due to the benefits of its constructions, for example, Space saving, 3d Interconnect and fully tested as an integral single piece component. What is a Rigid Flex PCB? A rigid flex Printed Circuit Board (PCB) is a hybrid circuit board design that integrates elements from both rigid board and flexible circuits.… Read More »Why Use Flex & Flex-Rigid Technology

What does a Printed Circuit board (PCB) do?

A PCB (Printed Circuit Board) and its components are used in the majority of electronic devices so they can perform their intended function. They are used to mechanically support and electrically connect electronic components using conductive pathways, track or signal traces etched from copper sheets laminated onto a non-conductive substrate. PCBs are everywhere! Computers, printers, televisions, digital clocks, microwaves and you’ll even find one in your mobile phone! Aside from… Read More »What does a Printed Circuit board (PCB) do?

Exception PCB Purchases Ledia Direct Imager from Ucamco

Exception PCB, one of the largest dedicated time and technology PCB manufacturers in the UK, has purchased a Ledia Direct Imager from Ucamco.

What is a PCB made of?

There is a large variety of materials used to make a PCB. Each material has unique properties that are chosen specifically in order to fill the PCB’s purpose. For example, some materials are specifically chosen because of their resistance to high temperatures whereas other might be chosen because of their capability of supporting high frequency signals.

Single Layer PCB

Single layer PCB also known as a Single Sided PCB is a type of PCB, which comes with only one layer of conducting material on one side of the board, and the other side is used for incorporating different electronic components on the board. Single layer PCBs were the start point of Printed Circuit Board technology but they still play an important part in the electronic industry. What are the… Read More »Single Layer PCB
