Each new piece of technology that enters the marketplace boasts new features and promises to be smarter and faster than its predecessors. In this Internet Age we live in, connectivity is essential for communication, business productivity and our economic wellbeing. According to a recent article published by PCB007, it is forecasted that there will be 4.9 billion “connected things” in use in 2015. This represents an increase of 30 percent from 2014 and could be indicative of the advancements made in printed circuit boards that are leading to expanded capabilities and higher tolerances for materials. As engineers and researchers pack more into each PCB, companies are able to design products that open up new possibilities for collaboration and connectivity. These new “connected things” will appear in a number of industries, including:
Printed Circuit Board Standards for Manufacturing
Industry standards governing the production of printed circuit boards allows for companies all over the world to develop machines and consumer products that are built to interact with one another. Without these standards, it is hard to say that the global economy would be what it is today. Since different sectors have different performance and manufacturing requirements, such as materials used, operating temperature and size restrictions, it is necessary for PCB manufacturers to be versed in and certified for numerous standards of production. By talking with a representative at Advanced Circuits you will be able to learn more about different manufacturing standards and how they play a role in the overall development and creation of printed circuit boards.
