3D Printing and Electronics in Electronic Assembly
3D Printing and Electronics in Electronic Assembly 3D printing and electronics in electronics assembly is getting more and more prevalent because the two go really well together. 3D Printing technology has really advanced in a few short years. It allows more types of materials to be printed together. We are a society that creates whatever it wants and is dispensed from a machine. We can create simple models, toys, tools, and working mechanical machines and electronics from machines. 3D printing, in the realm of electronics assembly, makes it easier to create simple to complex electronic components and casings. These would otherwise take a long time to fabricate. Rapid prototyping is now faster than ever before thanks to 3D printing and electronics design. Once material and production costs lower, 3D printing will be used for manufacturing as well. What does it take to for 3D printing and electronics assembly to work? In the simplest sense, any 3D printer will work when producing components such as enclosures, frames and other non-conductive parts. As well as the PCBs themselves. But it is possible to 3D print entire circuits as well as components such as transistors, switches, resistors and capacitors. This enables manufacturers to […]
Lower Raw Material Costs in Electronic Manufacturing
Lower Raw Material Costs in Electronic Manufacturing Lowering raw material costs while producing a high quality product has always been a challenge among manufacturers in various fields. While technological advances and high degrees of miniaturization has greatly helped the electronics industry, it remains a challenge to lower raw material costs. Prices are challenging in electronic manufacturing thanks to the fluctuating prices of raw materials. Just how does one reduce raw material costs in the electronics manufacturing setting? To lower raw material costs, here are a few suggestions: Diligently search for alternative vendors Try seeking discounts for bulk orders. This basic aspect of purchasing is where manufacturers look to gain more profit by seeking out lower cost materials and tools from the lowest bidder. The key is to widen the search for a vendor that can give more for less. Enticing vendors with bulk orders, as well as the promise of future orders, often results in larger discounts. Optimize the design of the product You’ll notice that a particular electronic device varies in model numbers even though the device looks and functions the same. Internally, the numbers differ as manufacturers fix internal design flaws. Or perhaps they are optimizing the components […]
Create the Best Flexible Circuit Board
One of the newest tech trends today is flexible electronics. Especially those with different form factors. Many of which would require a flexible circuit board. Foldable phones, for example, are the newest trends in gadgets. Along with smart watches, curved or flexible displays and speakers. Even now the continuous quest to create thinner and thinner laptops and phones require the creation of the best flexible circuit board. Devices that should be able to withstand the stresses of extensive daily use. As opposed to regular rigid circuit boards or PCBs the flexible circuit board (FPCB), is very thin, lightweight and flexible. They are often made of clear cellophane-like material such as copper-coated polyimide. This enables electronics manufacturers to create smaller, thinner, more flexible devices like mobile phones, wearables and ultrabooks. Their flexibility allows manufacturers to easily create smaller electronics of various shapes which were not possible decades ago. The flexible circuit board also allows for more complexity in circuit paths by easily allowing more layers while maintaining a thin profile. Flex boards can have from one to four layers depending on the complexity of the device. Advantages of flexible circuit board Other than their thinness and lightweight, design constraints are now […]
Power Transformers and Lasting Builds
Power Transformers and Builds that Last Electronics or electrical equipment do not last very long when supplied with the wrong amount of power especially in unstable situations. Unless they’re equipped with protective components like fuses and power transformers. The use of the correct power transformer in an electrical or electronics device ensures that the device will last far longer than devices that lack such protection. In an electronics system, the power transformer supplies power to various components. But in various lower voltages compared to the original voltage that flows from the power supply. A transformer’s main function is to convert or transform an amount of voltage to become higher or lower. The power transformer is also a good solution to isolate electronic circuitry from the high voltage electricity coming from an external public power supply. What are power transformers? Power transformers basically transfer electricity from one circuit to another using electromagnetic induction. The same principle as wireless charging for mobile phones. Transformers can also be used to increase (step up) or decrease (step down) voltages to a suitable level, depending on a device’s design requirements. There are several types of power transformers. The typical power transformer consists of a primary […]
3D Forming Steps to Save Money
3D Forming Steps to Save You Valuable Design Money 3D Forming is a revolutionary way to save money when designing and manufacturing many products such as decoration, toys, pastry, art, gadgets and jewelry. It is basically a quick, easy and affordable way to create product molds depending on the equipment and material you choose to use. There are several approaches to 3D forming but the basic concept involves a sturdy molding material, the template, some heat and a strong vacuum. There are already several kits and equipment available on the market as well as do-it-yourself approaches to 3D forming. 3D forming can be applied to re-making or copying existing products, as well as creating molds (also known as tools) for new ones. The sturdy molding material mentioned is basically a plastic sheet made from the following materials: ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) – a sturdy plastic material similar to lego bricksPVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) – used for plastic pieces, etc.PMMA (Polymethylmethacrylate) – used mostly for Designer lightingPE (Polyethylene) – familiar material used mostly in plastic bottles.PP (Polypropylene) – used for various household objectsPS (Polystyrene) – used for packaging.PC (Polycarbonate) – also mostly used for bottlesPETG (Polyethylene Terephthalatemodified withGlycol) – best for packaging […]
What Makes a Good Systems Build?
10 Things to Look For In a Good Systems Build Thanks to advances in technology, the process of creating new stylish and innovative products has been shortened. It has been shortened from concept, to design, systems build and finally to production. Nowadays, entrepreneurs who come up with new ideas no longer have to struggle in the creation process, especially prototyping and final design. This is thanks to many systems build companies available in electronic, mechanical and other industries. You’ll probably notice how fast products are designed and released. It seems impossibly paced compared to decades ago. Products get announced. Then several months later, they are followed closely by cheaper copies. These copies seem to come out just as quickly. It’s all thanks to system build companies that help to quicken the prototyping and building process. Electronics In electronics, for example, it takes only a few short months to release a variant or an upgraded/corrected design of a mobile phone. Manufacturers design and then contract other companies to assemble the internal PCBs. They contract companies to assemble external elements such as screens and housings. These elements come together to become prototypes. The prototypes are either accepted or revised. They are quickly […]

Engineering Artificial Intelligence in Homes
Engineering Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Homes Engineering Artificial Intelligence in homes is now very much in the reach of the middle class and easily considered by the rich. We are nearing the end of another decade in the 21st century. Thanks to many advances in technology, the existence of homes that can greet their occupants, automatically set the temperature, turn lights on and off and even clean itself is no longer in the realm of movies and science-fiction. From Sci-fi to Reality We’ve all heard the legends or rumors of how the homes of billionaires like Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg function. That Engineering Artificial Intelligence in homes have been exclusive to folks like them even back in the 1980s. The so-called ‘smart home’ where lights turn on and off as you walk by or via claps and voice control. Laser-enabled security systems that automatically call the police when something is amiss. These were very complicated and expensive systems back then. But thanks to advancements in technology, especially in communications technology (Wi-Fi, Internet of Things), computing and artificial intelligence, today’s smart homes can be smarter. Much smarter than the state of the art smart home a couple of […]
Engineering LED Lights into Homes
Engineering LED Lights into Homes Better and brighter. That’s what engineering LED lights into homes leads to. For the longest time, we relied on inefficient and non-environmentally friendly incandescent and fluorescent bulbs to light our homes and businesses. Gradually, LED lighting has made a headway into replacing conventional lighting, especially in the past few years. Now engineering LED lights into homes and businesses is becoming more common with more and more homes switching from their current lighting scheme to engineering them from the ground up. Fluorescent lighting, once thought to be more efficient and brighter, is on its way out as well. What makes engineering LED lights into homes and businesses better than conventional setups? First we need to know how LED lights work. LED is short for light emitting diode. A LED is a semiconductor component in electronics that emits light when an electric current flows through it. It takes advantage of a phenomenon called electroluminescence. The color of the light depends on the energy it takes to close a gap in the semiconductor as well as any light-emitting chemical coating used. Early LEDs were mainly used in remote control devices and as indicator lights for electronics. They were […]
Engineering LED Screens
Engineering LED Screens LED displays has gone a long way from the old seven-segment displays on calculators. By now the technology of engineering LED screens has led to many people using them to communicate and watch videos on the palm of their hands. LED is used on large flat screens at home and even larger screens during concerts and other special occasions. Today, older CRT-based televisions and monitors are non-existent in stores except perhaps in the used market. Engineering LED Screens began as early as 1968 shortly after the creation of light emitting diodes (LCDs) back in 1962. Seven arranged LEDs can easily form letters and numbers creating seven-segment displays for calculators and other electronic equipment. The first all-LED television was actually invented way back in 1977. Fast-forward 40 years, most people have switched to LED screens from CRT-based ones. Today, almost everywhere you look, there are LED screens on mobile phones, tablets, computers, watches, televisions, microwaves and even refrigerators and every conceivable electronic device. What makes LED displays better than LCDs and CRT displays? LEDs are more power efficient as compared to LCDs as they do not use high-power bulbs to backlight a display. LEDs are generally thinner and […]
5 Robotic Innovations in Medicine in the Last Decade
5 Robotic Innovations in Medicine in the Last Decade It’s already 2019 and we have expected a lot of great things in the field of medical science by this time, several decades ago. Are we already there? Perhaps. While we have yet to have actual robotic surgeons and over-the-counter pills to cure cancer, there have been plenty of innovations of applied robotics in the field of medicine, especially in surgery. Here are 5 robotic innovations in medicine in the last decade alone. Miniature Arm from Virtual Incision – Surgical procedures unfortunately are often highly invasive, requiring doctors to further harm the patient in order to get where they need to be. But thankfully, modern technologies seek to reduce the amounts or sizes of incisions needed for surgery much like Virtual Incision’s miniature robotic arm. Instead of large abdominal incisions required for procedures like colon re-sectioning, all that’s needed is a small incision from which the device can be inserted. This small robotic surgeon consists of two small robotic arms, at the end of each can be attached various tools. The arms are attached to a long shaft that’s inserted in the small incision. Between the arms is a camera with […]
Face Recognition Devices Banned in SAN FRANCISCO But Business Use Increases
“The propensity for facial recognition technology to endanger civil rights and civil liberties substantially outweighs its purported benefits… and the technology will exacerbate racial injustice and threaten our ability to live free of continuous government monitoring.” –Stop Secret Surveillance ordinance, San Francisco San Francisco will have to keep fighting crime the old fashioned way. Recognizing criminals through sheer vision and memory from mugshots instead of using facial recognition technology. Thanks to the San Francisco Facial Recognition Ban,Microsoft and Amazon, active in selling the technology just lost one potential customer and possibly many others. Unlike China which has turned itself into an Orwellian state by adopting facial recognition nationwide, the United States remain wary of the technology due to government surveillance, free speech, privacy concerns. Despite many advantages when it comes to fighting crime and finding lost persons, the city of San Francisco has passed a city ordinance banning the use of facial recognition technology in all city agencies and its police department. The latter has not adopted the technology yet but it won’t get the chance. The measure is known as the ‘stop secret surveillance’ ordinance which seeks to prevent the possible abuse of the technology by the government similar […]
Market Sector of Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA)
Electronics are no doubt an essential part of our daily lives. Virtually every device we use, from our smartphones to our vehicles, they all are made up of electronic components. At the core of this electronic component is the printed circuit board which can generally be abbreviated as PCB. It’s easy to recognize printed circuit boards when seen for those of us that are technologically inclined. It looks appears in small green chips covered in lines and copper parts, you’ll see at the central part of gutted electronic devices. It is made of fiberglass, copper lines and other metal components. These boards are merged with epoxy as well as insulated with a solder mask. This solder mask is what brings about the characteristic green color we often see at a glance. Nevertheless, have you ever noticed for once, these boards with components solidly stuck on? They are not just mere decorations of a Printed Circuit Board. An advanced PCB cannot do anything until components are attached to it. A Printed Circuit Board with components attached to is what is referred to as an assembled printed circuit board, and the manufacturing process is called printed circuit board assembly – in abbreviation, […]

Tariffs On PCBA and Electronics Manufacturing
What to Keep In Mind A twenty-five percent tariff on electronic components won’t express the same percentage on the increase of your final production cost. Some estimates put the abrupt price increase within a 3% range for relatively low-to-average-volume manufacturing but should tariff proceed to affect potential components like integrated circuits. There are high chances the estimations will increase. Components made in other countries like Hong Kong and Taiwan won’t be affected by these tariffs as they are not in any way subjected to it. Hence, all components from these countries should still maintain their regular price. China on the other way has promised to subject themselves to these tariffs alongside some of their own. This apparently means that tariffs made in the United States will be shipped to China. Due to the lack of potential consumer for electronics included on the tariff list, higher prices in the supply chain could result in higher prices of finished products for consumers. What Can Be Done? The tariff implementation will for sure affect the PCBA industry. However, it is hard to say if it’ll come out negative or positive. It is possible to file a complaint with the federal government and the […]
