High Density Interconnect (HDI) PCB’s

HDI technology is rapidly expanding in the PCB world. This technology allows significantly denser and smaller board construction and packaging allowing for substantially more components per square inch. Basically, it’s more technology-functionality in less space. HDI has proven invaluable and critical in the production of electronic equipment with smaller and tighter space. Cell phones, laptops, and high speed performance and computing would not be possible without HDI as we know it today

Examples of HDI technology include fine lines and spaces, sequential lamination, back-drilling, non-conductive and conductive via fill, blind vias, buried vias, and microvias. These are specifically PCB technologies that are allowing tight and miniaturized packaging. They also allow higher levels of performance like controlled impedance and satellite technologies.Designing and

manufacturing HDI PCB’s come with an increased cost, but one that must be embraced and mastered to meet the ever demanding requirements of the Electronic Industry.

South Bay Circuits is here to meet your HDI PCB needs.


Drastically Reduce New Product Integration (NPI) Time: Step 2 & 3 of 5

Drastically Reduce New Product Integration (NPI) Time: Step 2 & 3 of 5

The PCB/PCBA timeframe of new product integration can be significantly reduced by following 5 logistical steps.

Step 2 & 3: Removing Lag Time for the Quoting and PO processes.  

These 2 steps can be completed in parallel with the design/layout phase to greatly reduce or eliminate delays.

  • Quoting
  • Purchase Orders

The process of design/layout, quoting, issuing of PO’s and mfg. of PCB’s and PCBA’s are typically done in a sequential manner. Simply changing the timing of attaining quotes and PO’s as a parallel process can “completely” remove this delay.In many cases this time takes as long as mfg. itself.

Bare boards and assembly quotes and PO’s can be completed and issued during the Layout process. Worst case adjustments can be made when the final version files are created.
