Eurocircuits stratégia – a fejlődés 20 éve

A fejlődés 20 éve – egyetlen grafikonon szemléltetve Az első 10 év Europrint-ként indulva – teljesen a kezdetektől – a piac aktív szereplői voltunk a prototípusok és a kis szériák területén. Célunk az volt, hogy kiszolgáljuk vevőinket bármilyen kéréssel is fordultak hozzánk: “mondja el igényét, mi legyártjuk”. Ezeknek az igényeknek a kielégítése meglehetősen költséges volt, […]

Slots and cut-outs

Milling, slots and cut-outs – hints and tips. One of the most frequent questions we get asked via our support services is “how to I define slots in my PCB?”.  Slots and cut-outs also generate many exceptions, which may lead to delivery delays.  Some exceptions occur because the definition of the slots is not clear; […]

Tolerances on PCB

What tolerances should I design into my PCB? Where possible, design to PCB industry standard mid-range tolerances. If you use these tolerances you should be able to source your boards from any fabricator in the world without cost-penalty. Eurocircuits use these specifications and tolerances as the basis of our lowest-cost pooling services. Of course there […]

The smallest possible distance between two holes

What is the smallest possible distance between plated through holes? A. The holes are a part of different electrical nets? Plated through holes that belong to a different electrical net, need at least 0.25mm base material between their hole walls. To calculate this, you will need to count with the manufacturing tool size which is […]
