In 2016, we’ve worked tirelessly (ok, that’s an exaggeration) to create educational articles for PCB design enthusiasts that provide the keys to the knowledge held by PCB manufacturers such as ourselves. Examples include “Don’t Be Surprised By Markings on a PCB“, “Circuit Board Design Tips for Hard or Soft Gold“, and, “Common Problems with Gerber Files and How to Avoid Them” – tips and best practices that all designers can benefit from. We hope you’ve enjoyed these, and are here to say that we’ve got more great content headed your way in 2017!
