Soldermask for Via Holes and Pads

Recently, Eurocircuits introduced a spray coating process for Soldermask, this brings many advantages including a thinner and more unified coating which helps us to meet today’s technology challenges. The Soldermask is imaged using aDai Nippon Ledia Direct Imaging system; this improves registration accuracy and eliminates the need for Photo-tools. The spray coating of Soldermask is only achievable […]

Cross Sections – What is their Purpose ?

Eurocircuits uses cross sections as part of its quality control Cross sections are a power tool that ensures high quality production and products. Preparation of a cross section is a destructive process, a section of the production panel is cut out, in most cases a specially designed Test coupon is used (these are placed on […]

Review – standard- and predefined build-ups

Standard and predefined build-ups A few months ago, prepreg construction 2125 was removed from the available prepreg list of 370HR and IS400, 2 of our main FR4 material types.  We exchanged this prepreg type with construction 2116.  The thickness of 2116 differs from the 2125 with approximately 20 µm.  At first we assumed it wouldn’t […]

Soldermask on via-holes in case of chemical Nickel-Gold surface finish

Soldermask on via holes There are 3 ways our customers prepare their layouts with respect to covering via-holes with soldermask: As necessary background information we need to briefly introduce you into the technology of applying soldermask to the boards. The easiest production method is to have all vias open from both sides. The vias will […]

Through hole component soldering with the eC-reflow mate

PIP (Pin in Paste) technology for soldering trough hole components PIP is a technology for assembling through hole components using a conventional reflow soldering process. The process is also known as THTR (Through Hole Technology Reflow). Most PCB”s that contain SMD components usually also contain some through hole components, such as connectors, switches, capacitors and […]
