Surface mount technology (SMT) is a method of designing electrical circuits that involves mounting required circuit components directly to the Printed Circuit Board (PCB). This is in contrast to older assembly options, such as through-hole technology which were used prior to the advancement of tools for consistently crafting a reliable surface mount device. Given that… Continue reading Why Choose Surface Mount Technology?
Flat ribbon cable assemblies utilize multiple wires as well as insulation displacement connector terminations. The cables used are laid flat and parallel to each other. The end product of a flat cable assembly is therefore wide and flat in the shape of a ribbon, hence the product’s name. Key benefits of ribbon cable assemblies Because these cables… Continue reading A Guide to Flat Ribbon Cable Assemblies
The performance of fiber-optic cables should naturally be incredible – if there are no errors or faults with them. The major factors affecting the performances of these cables come down mostly to human error or wear and tear. This is different to PCB board manufacturing or circuit board manufacturing. However, here’s what printed circuit board manufacturers also… Continue reading 5 Factors Affecting Fiber Optic Cabling Performance
