  • New designers tend to remove a great deal of copper from their boards.  The problem with this approach is that without copper present in equal amounts on mirror-layers of the circuit board that constrain the expansion of the dielectric layers equally, the printed circuit board Read More
  • Every fabrication shop has a list of design rules that they provide to customers that detail the limitations of the manufacturing process.  The specific numbers used will depend on the fabrication shop that you use as well as whether you are using their recommended process Read More
  • Whenever you route a signal trace, you need to pay attention to the return path for that trace — return signals take the path of least impedance, not the path of least resistance. Ideally, every digital signal line and power rail will have an uninterrupted Read More
  • When your signal frequency approaches 10 GHz, copper roughness and fiberglass smoothness and quality come into play. Learn how to move beyond your fabrication houses cheapest materials into higher quality, higher speed materials with Fred Scheer from Panasonic. https://youtu.be/cd16AY1IAgs Download the presentation slides here.

  • FR-4 is commonly used to describe the dielectric material that makes up PCBs. That’s a problem since FR-4 stands for Flame Retardant level 4, and hundreds of possible laminates meet that specification “FR-4” only describes the way the material behaves when exposed to flame. Mark Read More
  • A PCB Panel can hold one or one-thousand boards. How do you design for panelization? What are mouse-bites? V-scores? What about tooling holes? Learn all of this and more with Royal Circuits’ PCB Panelization Expert, Elijah Gracia. Read More

  • What is a Stackup? PCBs are made of alternating layers of conductors and insulators (dielectrics).  Multi-layer PCBs are either made by laminating two or more premade cores together, or by starting with a core and laminating foil on the outside to build up the outer Read More
  • In this customer grab-bag, process engineers from Royal Circuit Solutions and Advanced Assembly answer questions live. https://youtu.be/LeWcwiHxXmQ Read More
  • This webinar covers cleaning and cleanliness testing best-practices including: – Contamination failure mechanisms – Cleaning challenges and strategies to overcome them – Environmental best practices (how to solve one problem and not create another) – Choosing an appropriate cleaning method (a review of various cleaning Read More
  • Learn about material stackups and impedance control with Royal Circuits dedicated stackup engineer Teresa Jensen. This webinar covers all of the industry jargon and lets you know how conductors and dielectrics are selected for your next design. Read More
  • In this webinar, Chris Hunrath of Insulectro, Bob Meyer and Larry Ybarra of Royal Flex Circuits discuss material considerations and design techniques for your next flex and rigid-flex pcb project. Click below to access the presentation slides.  Read More
  • Royal Flex Circuits has been producing circuit boards for ventilators for over 10 years.  So, when the country needed help ramping up its supply of ventilators, Royal Flex and its customer, the largest medical device company in the world, answered the call. Over the past 12 Read More
