Nothing affects the cost and quality of a printed circuit board (PCB) as much as the initial design. Modern electronic products are expected to offer more and more advanced functions, while the products themselves are becoming smaller and smaller. This places greater demands on the circuit board design, thus it is more important than ever to make the right choices at the design stage. To prevent getting it wrong from the start, we have put together our PCB design guidelines to use as a checklist.

Design guidelines for Multilayer PCB, HDI PCB, Flex / Rigid-Flex PCBs and Semi-Flex PCB are available for download.

More than 30% of the Gerber data packs we receive contain issues. This generally includes ambiguous information, errors, design rule conflicts, missing information and contradictions between the data and specifications. Use our PCB design guidelines as a checklist and wherever possible, we always recommend that you involve your PCB producer as early as possible at the design stage.

Please note – When using a combination of parameters, it is vital you always consult your local NCAB technical contact person.
