New Product Designs Evolving Due to Component Shortage
Extended lead times and delays in order fulfillment have been critical concerns for electronic manufacturers for a few years now. These delays have been induced by component shortage on a global level. To mitigate these delays, product engineers in the electronics industry are exploring new designs.
Gerber Files and Their Generation for PCB Design Discussed
Gerber files are one of the many formats used during PCB design. These Gerber files are used for documenting every aspect of PCB design. Each PCB is designed to specifications and therefore the specifications are documented for precise PCB manufacturing and future references. In general terms, the Gerber files act as blueprints of the PCB design. However, to use these files, one must know how to generate them.
How to Prepare BOM for PCB Assembly?
An appropriate bill of materials for a PCB assembly allows you to know the exact quantities and part numbers, and brand names of raw materials and several components required, and other important details. When it comes to PCB assembly, BOM includes a list of components, wires, boards, and circuitry requirements. Now you may ask, how to prepare BOM in the right way. This post answers the same.
