Simply put, the Automotive PCB was born due to the advancement of technology in the vehicle industry. In that sense, the Automotive PCB is built to handle all of the requirements of the automobile market. Ever since the Automotive PCB was released, it has been fairly straightforward to program vehicles to perform autopiloting, automated parking, keyless entry, lane assistance, and advanced braking systems integrated into the modernized vehicles existing nowadays. All of these features are simply coded through the help of an Automotive PCB; thus, their importance.
One of the fundamental pieces in every circuit board, not just in Automotive PCB is the substrate since it is practically responsible for holding the traces and components of the PCB intact and in one place. All of the traces and components are the principal foundation of the board; hence, it is crucial to select a substrate that will efficiently perform this role. In Automotive PCB, there are four (4) widely preferred substrates that are effectively working in the environmental setting of Automotive PCB. We have Ceramic, PTFE, Metal Core, and Heavy Copper substrates.
Welcome to our FAQ section, where we’ve compiled answers to many commonly asked questions. If you have any additional queries, please leave us a message.
In general, there are ten (10) fundamental guidelines in designing an Automotive PCB; all of it is essential in producing a flawlessly functioning output. First, it is necessary to consider the orientation and positioning of the components and lead. Second, the signal routing and efficient thermal management. Then, constantly conduct design rule evaluation. After that, it is crucial to integrate the design standards for automotive. Next, it is essential to consider the Through-Hole and adopt excellent grounding methods. Finally, it is important to prevent an EMI.
In a nutshell, there are countless applications that necessitate the presence of an Automotive PCB, including anti-lock braking systems, digital displays, dashboards, vehicle audio systems, DC to AC converters, engine control systems, air conditioner systems, steering, transmission sensors, and many others.
Similar to other circuit boards, the Automotive PCB undergoes the same manufacturing procedure. Initially, it begins with designing, designing reviews, and engineering questions. Followed by printing the design, and printing the copper required for the inner layer. After that, etching the layers. Then, we conduct layer arrangement. Next, we perform an Automated Optical Inspection (AOI). After it passed, it is time to laminate the layers, drill them, and plate them. Then, we can perform the exterior layer imaging, etching, and AOI. Following that, it is time to apply the solder mask, silkscreen, and surface finish. After applying them, it can proceed to an electrical readability test, profiling and route out, and quality control and visual inspection. Finally, it will be prepared for packaging and delivery.
In measuring the PCBs voltage, the process is pretty straightforward since there’s no need to acquire a meter, instead, it necessitates a voltmeter or multimeter and the leads. In essence, make sure that the display is set to voltage measurement; then, simply put the two separate leads into two different points wherein one would like to measure the voltage. After that, it will quickly display the measurement on the display of the voltmeter.
