How to Avoid PCB Design Pitfalls

By Brian White | January 30, 2023

PCB design and manufacturing processes are very involved with numerous opportunities for failure if necessary precautions are not taken. A few culprits of PCB failure which affect the performance of the final product fall into the category of design oversights, like incorrect measurements and insufficient clearances. Drilling errors and over-etching can also cause catastrophic failures, while other failures may result from quality issues in manufacturing processes.

With experience and knowledge of PCB manufacturing processes, we can avoid most of these typical errors—which is why you should only trust your printed circuit boards to experts, such as the skilled staff at Freedom CAD Services. To guide your company through the potential pitfalls in designing your PCB, we believe it is crucial to identify the common issues experienced in PCB manufacturing, understand how they happen, and actively try to prevent them in the first place.
