Definition and overview of PCBA
PCBA is the abbreviation of Printed Circuit Board Assembly, meaning "printed circuit board assembly", which refers to electronic products assembled by soldering circuit boards and electronic components.
1. Traditional PCB manufacturing method
The traditional PCB manufacturing method is generally to draw the circuit diagram first, then make the circuit board through multiple process steps such as printing and chemical etching, drill holes and wire on the board, and finally solder the components manually. This production method often takes a lot of time and energy, and is easily affected by human factors, thus affecting the quality and production efficiency of PCBA.
2. The modern PCBA production method adopts an automated and intelligent process
The modern PCBA production method adopts an automated and intelligent process. Through advanced equipment and technology, it realizes the automation of circuit design, PCB manufacturing, component placement, welding, testing and other links, thus greatly improving the manufacturing process. efficiency and quality. Next, we will introduce the PCBA production process in detail.
The production process of PCB
1. Fill in the engineering documents
Fill in the engineering documents Before starting PCBA production, you need to prepare the circuit diagram, track wiring diagram, PCB size, copper foil thickness, aperture size, position, etc., and then fill in an engineering document. Common engineering file formats include Gerber files, Excellon files, NC machine tool codes, etc. Gerber files are the most basic and commonly used circuit board manufacturing data format, which mainly includes information such as PCB traces, drilling holes, plug-ins, pads, etc. , is the core data of the PCB manufacturing process.
2. Manufacturing PCB
The manufacturing process of PCB is generally divided into three main links: printing, etching, and drilling. Introduce respectively below. Printing and printing refers to printing the original circuit pattern on the PCB surface. Common printing methods include screen printing and inkjet printing. Etching Etching refers to etching with an etchant on the copper foil cover layer according to the printed pattern of the PCB, and peeling off unnecessary parts, thereby forming a conductive path on the circuit board. Common corrosive agents are ferric chloride, ammonia water, copper sulfate, etc. Drilling Drilling refers to drilling holes at specified positions on the PCB for the purpose of installing components and making circuit connections. There are two methods of drilling: mechanical drilling and laser drilling.
3. Welding components
After the PCB board is manufactured, the components need to be pasted on it and soldered. Common component placement methods include manual placement and automatic placement. Among them, manual placement requires fineness and patience, while automatic placement requires the support of high-end equipment.
4. Test PCBA
After the components are soldered, a series of tests are required on the PCBA. The main test items include functional test, power test, temperature test, vibration test, EMC test, etc.
The advantages and difficulties of PCBA production Compared with traditional circuit board production, PCBA production has the following advantages:
1. High production efficiency
the use of automatic and intelligent production methods saves production time and labor costs.
2. Low manufacturing cost
fine circuit design can greatly reduce the cost of PCBA. At the same time, the use of high-quality materials and components can also ensure the stability and reliability of the product.
3. High precision
Modern PCBA production equipment can realize high-precision manufacturing process, thus ensuring the quality of products.
4. Strong scalability
The PCBA production method can adapt to the manufacturing needs of various products, thus providing a flexible and efficient production method.
The difficulty of PCBA production mainly lies in the following aspects:
1. High PCB design requirements:
In order to produce high-quality PCBA, precise circuit design is required first, because the position and size of wires, components, etc. on the circuit board must be reasonable and accurate to ensure stable product performance.
2. High requirements for welding technology
Welding is the most critical link in PCBA production. To ensure the quality of welding, certain skills and experience are required. Poor soldering can easily cause problems such as short circuits and leakage between components.
3. Difficulty in testing
PCBA testing needs to go through multiple links, and various testing equipment needs to be used to conduct comprehensive and accurate tests on its functions, performance, and quality. The test is difficult and requires certain professional knowledge and experience.
4. Rapid technology update
PCBA production technology is updated rapidly, and it is necessary to continuously follow up and learn new technologies and new equipment in order to maintain competitiveness in the market.
The process, advantages and difficulties of PCBA production are introduced above. Although the PCBA production process is relatively complicated, with the continuous advancement of technology, modern PCBA production methods can realize automated and intelligent production, which greatly improves production efficiency and quality. In the actual production work, it is necessary to pay attention to the details of each link and continuously strengthen learning in order to produce high-quality and stable PCBA products.
