Fully automated factories relying on data automation efficiency and productivity are constantly increasing their utilization of technological advancements made in autonomous robots, big data, and internet of things (IoT), machine learning, simulation, and system integration. The main incentive of industry 4.0 manufacturers is to track down manufacturing errors as they occur. Big volumes of data analysis require highly reliable PCBs which should be tested and process controlled through each of their production stages. Industries 4.0 also requires PCB design which is able to combine RF, advances processors, antennas, miniaturization, optics and advanced technologies into one integrated system. PCB Technologies is the perfect fit in terms of know-how based on long years of PCB design and manufacturing, PCBA and full system integration.
MEMS (Microelectromechanical systems) are the microscopic building blocks of modern electronics. MEMS device, which contains mechanical moving parts within the package, requires proper layout to ensure the highest performance in a finished product. PCB Technologies’ decade-long-experience in PCB design and fabrication contributes to our capacity to provide solutions for the market’s continued demand for miniaturization of electronic devices. We make sure every parameter related to their design does not go unnoticed such as the components sensitivity to mechanical and thermal stress coming from the PCB they’re assembled to, or the need to reduce PCB signal noise to ensure their smooth operation. We implement high-end technologies on accelerometers, gyroscopes, MEMS microphones, motion and pressure sensor modules, and more.
High power devices such as battery chargers, converters, heater controls, inverters, power supplies and switches discharge a large quantity of heat during their operations. Providing the customer with an extreme heat dissipation resistant PCB, while utilizing the PCB as a cooling system requires special expertise. PCB Technologies has the relevant know how in choosing the right materials for the job, as well as the stack up structure, plating, and advanced heating management solutions. We conduct route cause analysis on a regular basis to tackle problems such as repeated delamination between PCB layers caused by the extended heat. It takes a lot of experience in PCB design and fabrication to understand the different environmental conditions in which the PCB operates and its influence on the required heat dissipation solution. We believe getting our engineering team involved in the earliest stages of the PCB design, can serve as a game-changer in both time and money spent.
Controller & Motion Systems/C4I Systems
Under controller systems applications, such as encoder position, piezo motors, servo compensation, step motor stall detection, brushless DC motor commutation, micro-step generation, digital current/torque control, and more, require a unique design and production of PCBs.
PCB designs for controllers and motion systems, such as C4I applications, require the ability to support sufficient current to the load, noise immunity for the load, and accurate current sensing.
In the case of motion controllers with integrated power electronics, network communications, and derive DC, step motors require specific PCB design rules.
Other PCB factors, such as compact size, range of power output levels, vibration, and high level of connectivity make PCB design and manufacturing challenging.
Radar PCB design requires, among other things, the use of high-frequency PCB materials, such as, teflon, ceramic, and hydrocarbon. This enables the measurement of the distance between objects blocked by electromagnetic wave travel time that the radars are programmed for. Airborne, grid, naval, or land radars, Phased array, as well as Yagi-Uda radar PCBs, all combine various digital and mixed-signal technologies using very high-frequency microwave signals which call for the special know-how and a common design rules kit we possess.
PCB Technologies is a world leader in the design and manufacturing of radar PCBs including phased array air cavity antenna designs based on advanced semiconductor technology. This addresses the market’s demand for reduced size, weight, and power consumption of these elements. The next-generation design moves to a flat-panel approach, where each IC is easily mounted on the back of the antenna board allowing large-scale reduction of the antenna’s depth. The integration of higher frequency ICs (GaAs, GaN), makes advanced packaging and thermal management solutions key factor in the production of phased array air cavities to reduce the system’s physical size, improve its long-term reliability, and ensure more than one radiation pattern or data stream as common in conventional dish antennas. We also conduct complex tests and inspection procedures to ensure quality, highly reliable solutions for high reliability and mission-critical applications.
