PCB thick board production, strict conditions to create high-quality circuit boards

PCB thick boards are boards with a circuit board thickness greater than or equal to 1.0 millimeter, and they play a critical role in a variety of electronic devices. Producing these thick boards requires a number of conditions and requirements to be met to ensure their quality and reliability. Below we will explore the key conditions required to produce PCB thick boards.

1. Material selection

The first and foremost condition for producing PCB thick boards is to select suitable materials. Usually, PCB thick boards consist of multiple layers of insulating materials and conductive metals. Insulating materials commonly used include FR4, CEM-1 and polyimide, while conductive metals include copper, aluminum and nickel. It is very important to choose the right combination of materials and thickness according to the needs of circuit design.

2. Manufacturing process

The manufacturing process for producing PCB thick boards mainly includes lamination, drilling, plating and outer layer treatment. The process parameters and operating requirements of these links must be strictly controlled to ensure product quality and reliability. In addition, the manufacturing process also needs to pay attention to prevent warping, delamination, cracking and other common problems to ensure the structural stability and durability of the thick board.

3. Design and plate making

PCB thick plate design and plate making is also an important part of the production process. Designers need to determine the size, shape and layout of the board according to the actual application requirements, and select the appropriate conductive metals and insulating materials. At the same time, it is also necessary to carry out multilayer board stacking design, in order to optimize signal transmission and power distribution. The plate-making process requires the use of precision laser light painting machine and chemical etching process to ensure that the circuit graphics are accurate.

4. Surface treatment

In order to improve the durability and solderability of PCBs, surface treatment is often required. Surface treatments include electroplating, chemical plating and tin spraying. These treatments can form a protective film on the conductive metal surface of the circuit board to improve its corrosion resistance and solderability. At the same time, the surface treatment can also improve the aesthetics and consistency of the circuit board, which is conducive to improving the reliability of electronic equipment.

5. Inspection and testing

The final step in the production of PCB thick board is inspection and testing. In the production process requires strict quality control of each link to ensure product consistency and reliability. For example, X-ray inspection, optical microscopy and functional testing means, such as PCB thick board aperture, thickness, warpage, etc., to ensure that it meets the design requirements and quality standards. At the same time, sampling tests are also required after the completion of each production lot to confirm that the performance and quality of the product meets the customer’s requirements.

In short, the production of PCB boards need to meet the material selection, manufacturing process, design and plate making, surface treatment and inspection and testing and other aspects of the conditions. Only these conditions are fully satisfied, in order to produce high-quality, highly reliable thick boards for a variety of electronic equipment to provide stable and reliable circuit board components.
