PCB Mechanical Design Factors

Although printed circuit board adopts mechanical method to support components, it cannot be used as a structural member of the whole equipment. A certain amount of text support shall be provided at least every 5 inches at the edge of the printed board.

The following factors must be considered when selecting and designing printed circuit boards:;

1) Structure of printed circuit board - size and shape.

2) Type of mechanical accessories and plugs (sockets) required.

3) Adaptability of the circuit to other circuits and environmental conditions.

4) Consider installing the printed circuit board vertically or horizontally according to some factors, such as heating and dust.

Installation requirements for PCB printed circuit board

It shall be supported at least within 1 inch of the three edge edges of the printed circuit board. According to practical experience, the spacing of support points of printed circuit board with thickness of 0.031 --- 0.062 inch shall be at least 4 inches; For printed circuit boards with a thickness greater than 0.093 inch, the spacing between their supporting points shall be at least 5 inches. This measure can improve the rigidity of the printed circuit board and destroy the possible resonance of the printed circuit board.

The installation technology of certain printed circuit boards can be determined after considering the following factors

1) Dimensions and shapes of printed circuit boards.

2) Number of input and output terminals.

printed circuit board

PCB mechanical considerations

The characteristics of the substrate that have an important impact on the printed circuit assembly are: water absorption, thermal expansion coefficient, heat resistance, flexural strength, impact strength, tensile strength, shear strength and hardness. All these characteristics not only affect the function of PCB structure, but also affect the productivity of PCB structure.

For most applications, the dielectric substrate of printed circuit board is one of the following substrates:

1) Phenolic impregnated paper.

2) Acrylic acid polyester impregnated glass felt with irregular arrangement.

3) Epoxy impregnated paper.

4) Epoxy impregnated glass cloth.

Each substrate can be flame retardant or combustible. The above 1, 2 and 3 can be punched. The most commonly used material of metallized hole printed circuit board is epoxy glass cloth. Its dimensional stability is suitable for high-density circuits, and it can minimize the occurrence of cracks in metallized holes.

One disadvantage of epoxy glass cloth laminate is that it is difficult to punch within the common thickness range of printed circuit board. For this reason, all holes are usually drilled out, and profiling milling is used to form the shape of printed circuit board.

PCB electrical considerations

In DC or low-frequency AC occasions, the most important electrical characteristics of insulation substrate are insulation resistance, electrical isolation, printed wire resistance and breakdown strength.

In high-frequency and microwave applications, it is dielectric constant, capacitance and dissipation factors.

In all applications, the current load capacity of printed wire is important.

Wire drawing

PCB wiring path and positioning

The printed wire shall follow the shortest route between components under the restriction of specified wiring rules. The coupling between parallel conductors shall be limited as far as possible. Good design requires the minimum number of layers for wiring, and the widest wire and the largest pad size are also required to be used under the corresponding packaging density. Because rounded corners and smooth inner corners may avoid some electrical and mechanical problems, sharp corners and sharp corners in wires should be avoided.

PCB width and thickness

The figure shows the current carrying capacity of copper conductor etched by rigid printed circuit board. For 1 oz and 2 oz conductors, 10% of the nominal value (in load ammeter) is allowed to be reduced, taking into account the etching method, normal changes in copper foil thickness and temperature difference; For printed circuit board assemblies coated with protective layer (substrate thickness less than 0.032 inch, copper foil thickness more than 3 ounces), the components are reduced by 15%; For the soldered printed circuit board, 30% reduction is allowed.

PCB wire spacing

The minimum spacing of conductors must be determined to eliminate voltage breakdown or flashover between adjacent conductors. The spacing is variable and depends on the following factors:

1) Peak voltage between adjacent conductors.

2) AtmOSPheric pressure (maximum working height).

3) Coating used.

4) Capacitive coupling parameters.

The key impedance components or high-frequency components are generally placed very close to reduce the key stage delay. The transformer and inductive element shall be isolated to prevent coupling; Inductive signal conductors shall be arranged at right angles; Components that will generate any electrical noise due to magnetic field movement shall be isolated or rigidly mounted to prevent excessive vibration.

PCB wire pattern check

1) Is the wire short and straight without sacrificing function?

2) Are the wire width limits observed?

3) Is the minimum conductor spacing that must be guaranteed reserved between conductors, between conductors and mounting holes, between conductors and bonding pads?

4) Are parallel runs of all wires (including component leads) closer together avoided?

5) Is acute angle (90 ℃ or less) avoided in wire drawing?

Factors Affecting Etching Solution Characteristics in PCB printed circuits

1 Physical and chEMIcal aspects

1) Etching solution concentration: The concentration of etching solution shall be determined by test method according to the metal corrosion principle and the structure type of copper foil. It shall have a wide choice, that is, a wide range of processes.

2) Composition of chemical composition of etching solution: different chemical compositions of etching solution will lead to different etching rates and etching coefficients. For example, the etching coefficient of commonly used acid copper chloride etching solution is usually&; The etching solution coefficient of alkaline copper chloride can reach 3.5-4. The nitric acid based etching solution in the development stage can achieve almost no side erosion, and the side wall of the etched wire is nearly vertical.

3) Temperature: temperature has a great influence on the characteristics of etching solution. Generally, during chemical reaction, temperature plays an important role in accelerating the fluidity of solution, reducing the viscosity of etching solution, and improving the etching rate. However, if the temperature is too high, it is easy to cause some chemical components in the etching solution to volatilize, resulting in the imbalance of the chemical components in the etching solution. At the same time, if the temperature is too high, it may cause high polymer resistance

The erosion layer is damaged and affects the service life of etching equipment. Therefore, the etching solution temperature is generally controlled within a certain process range.

4) Copper foil thickness used: The thickness of copper foil has an important influence on the wire density of circuit patterns. Thin copper foil, short etching time, SMAll side erosion; On the contrary, the side erosion is very large. Therefore, the thickness of copper foil must be selected according to the design technical requirements and the wire density and wire precision requirements of circuit graphics. At the same time, the elongation of copper, surface crystal structure, etc., will constitute a direct impact on the characteristics of etching solution.

5) Geometric shape of circuit: If the distribution position of circuit pattern wires in X and Y directions is uneven, it will directly affect the flow speed of etching solution on the PCB surface. SIMilarly, if the wires with narrow spacing and the wires with wide spacing are distributed on the same PCB surface, the etching will be excessive. Therefore, it requires that the designer should first understand the feasibility of the process when designing the circuit, try to achieve uniform distribution of the circuit graphics on the whole PCB board, and try to keep the thickness of the wires consistent. Especially when making multilayer printed circuit boards, large area of copper foil as the ground plane has a great impact on the quality of etching, so it is recommended to design a mesh pattern.

2 Mechanical aspects

1) Type of equipment: the structure of equipment is also one of the important factors affecting the characteristics of etching solution. In the initial stage, the immersion method is used to etch the printed circuit board with wide wire width. The precision requirement is not high, so it is an acceptable equipment structure. For printed circuit boards with thin wires, narrow spacing, high precision and high density, the immersion etching equipment structure is not suitable. The horizontal mechanical transmission type of etching equipment and the swing nozzle device are used to make the etching of printed circuit on the copper surface of the substrate more uniform, but the horizontal equipment structure will cause the over corrosion of the PCB surface. Therefore, the vertical spraying technology is developed. At the same time, the etching equipment must also be equipped with a device to prevent the thin copper clad laminate from being easily wound on the roller and conveyor wheel during etching, resulting in waste products, and to ensure that the metal on the surface of the wire pattern is not scratched or scratched. Therefore, special attention should be paid to the structural form when selecting etching equipment to meet the requirements of fast etching rate, uniform etching and high etching quality. The figure below shows the outline of acid etching machine and alkaline etching machine PCB manufacturers, PCB designers and PCBA manufacturers explain the items that should be checked after PCB wiring
