Robrecht Belis, head of sales and PCB, is addressing in this webinar to PCB designers who desire to understand the impact of PCB design on the manufacturing process and more specifically on the plating process.
Producing a PCB is a complex process that needs many steps in order to ensure the quality throughout the full cycle, from the original design to the final product. One of the steps in between is plating, which is a very sensitive manufacturing step to create the copper tracks/walls holes on the PCB.
The PCB design has a real impact on the plating process. The slightest local modification on the layer thickness to reduce has the highest impact on signal integrity, the quality of boards and the service life, etc.
During the webinar, the following questions are addressed:
What is PCB plating?
What is the impact of the design on the PCB plating process?
How to get designs right for manufacturing?
What is copper balancing and its impact on layer thickness variations?
What are the different ways to measure plating quality on physical products?
