Printed Circuit Board (PCB) connectors are important components in electronic devices such as sensors, microcontrollers, and peripherals, to the PCB, enabling the transmission of electrical signals and power between different components. They come in a wide variety of types, each designed for specific applications and performance requirements. A broad range of PCB connection types are available to meet various applications, conditions, circuit types, and design needs.
In the world of electronics, where technological advancements occur rapidly, the multilayer PCB has established its dominance. Over the past few decades, multilayer printed circuit boards have become an indispensable part of modern electronic devices, enabling them to meet the complex needs of today's consumers.
In the manufacturing of electronic components and devices, a lot is going on behind the scenes and one fundamental part of this process is the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) manufacturing process. From smartphones to laptops to household appliances, the heart of these everyday gadgets lies within this small foundation: the Printed Circuit Board (PCB).
Creating an electronic circuit project typically involves the production of a printed circuit board (PCB). There are many different PCB types available on the market today. However, the single-layer PCB holds a special place among the various types of printed circuit boards available. If you've ever wondered what single-layer PCBs are, how they work, and when they're the ideal choice for your projects, you've come to the right place.
Modern electronics, where smaller sizes and increased capabilities are in demand, stimulated the development of Surface-Mount Technology (SMT). However, as demand grew, there was a requirement for faster assembly and higher-density technologies to accommodate these items.
As you probably already know, Printed circuit boards are the backbone of electronic devices. You will most likely find them in these everyday electronics, including smartphones and household appliances. They provide a foundation for the connection and assembly of various electronic components required for the functioning of these devices. However, many users of these electronics do not consider the technology that underlies them.
Surface Mount Technology (SMT) and Through-Hole Technology (THT) are two common types of technology used with printed circuit boards (PCBs). Professionals in the industry must understand the distinctions and benefits of these components. This article provides a comprehensive overview of Surface Mount Device (SMD) and THT components, highlighting their shared characteristics, differences, and the advantages of using electronic components in PCBs.
The new product introduction process always carries many potential risks. A successful concept phase preceding the development stage is crucial because implementing changes with the design process underway can be expensive and time-consuming.
Surface Mount Technology (SMT) is a vital process that is transforming the electronics industry. In this article, we delve into the intricacies of SMT assembly, exploring its advantages over through-hole technology, the applications in which it is used, and the process involved in its implementation.
The electronics industry is a vague idea that covers everything from simple sensor modules in the IoT sector to complex telecommunication equipment. Each industry has its own requirements and certification restrictions, which means responsible and business-aware Electronic Manufacturing Service (EMS) partners know their strengths.
The complexity in electronic hardware design has become a burden for any company looking to accelerate the time to market new products. This is especially true in the technology industry, where new products and innovations are constantly being developed.
The electronics manufacturing process is challenging and sometimes very demanding. Due to unforeseen difficulties and product complexity, most hardware startups fail before their first innovative product hits the market. Thankfully, newer technologies, design techniques, and procedures have decreased the risk of failure in electronic device development, resulting in more successful products.
Electronic products have revolutionised how we live, work, and interact with the world around us, playing an increasingly vital role in nearly every aspect of modern society. As technology continues to rapidly evolve, however, it’s becoming increasingly clear that many of these products will need to be redesigned to stay relevant and competitive.
Have you ever wondered how many electromechanical products there are around us? Electric lights brighten our homes, flat-screen televisions entertain us, while power supplies and accessories transmit power to every electronic product we use. Get a glimpse into what it takes to create them, and how we can help you!
Every functioning electronic device is powered by a core—the printed circuit board (PCB). Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) are the framework of the electronic components, and they make it possible to connect the internal components.
Certification of an Internet of Things (IoT) electronic product is one of the main challenges for tech companies today. IoT products are quickly becoming a part of modern life, and their popularity is encouraging governments to step in and increase their safety regulations.
Converting consumer needs into final product designs is one of the challenges in the product manufacturing process. The design for assembly is essential because it guarantees that manufacturers can remain competitive and satisfy the never-ending expectations of their customers.
Regarding modern technology, the world is expanding extremely quickly, and the results are immediately felt in our day-to-day activities. There is now numerous advanced equipment in use that we could not have imagined in past years. However, with the help of these technological innovations, we get to improve our quality of living.
Huge trade exhibitions are held annually where manufacturers display all of their newest products to spark interest among distributors, dealers, and potential buyers. Many consumers may not realize or even consider the amount of work that went into the creation, development, and launch of the new items.
Change is driven by innovation. A significant number of changes take place every day in fast-paced sectors like the industrial Internet-of-Things (IoT) industry and the high-tech world. No product ever reaches the market without undergoing quite a few design changes along the road, and even products that have already hit the market will probably require regular updates.

It should be of no surprise that global telecom Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) are now in high demand. Television and the Internet connect us all – people, machines and companies worldwide – based on smart electronic and telecom products. Consumers’ choices continue to redefine the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry in terms of safer, more accessible and faster methods of communication.
The Industry 4.0 revolution redefines the way people, machines, and companies connect worldwide. Our awareness grows simultaneously with our desire to harness the Internet of Things (IoT) to facilitate data collection, such as by medical devices, wearables running on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or smart devices using Radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags. Here a challenge arises for electronic manufacturing companies, as they need to replace the traditional circuit board with a flexible printed one (PCB).
The pandemic has irrevocably changed the role of supply chain management (SCM) in manufacturing electronic devices. The coronavirus outbreak has exposed all weaknesses of the supply chain in maintaining production continuity and providing component availability. Many companies pursued a business continuity plan to reduce the risk of not keeping to agreed lead-times, but some contract manufacturers were too late to act.
The ability to respond with services that deliver real value to the customer and invest their money wisely is today the most important aspect of Electronic Manufacturing Services. Keeping electronic design and manufacturing under one roof represents the smart approach, one where the customer benefits by being served better, faster and more cost-effectively.
The road to bringing the final electronic products to the mass market can be bumpy and fraught with difficulties. Everything starts with the custom electronics design, where we identify the requirements and establish a set of technological standards such as communication protocols.
Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) companies need to make smart decisions that bring real value to the customer, whether in product design, prototyping, or contract manufacturing. With operational excellence, they can achieve the highest levels of agility by doing things better, faster, and more flexibly.
The telco electronics sector is one of the most dynamically growing industries to have made major investments in broadband and internet services in recent years. The need for high capacity has been increasing steadily for years and the COVID-19 epidemic has accelerated global digitization. It is estimated that humankind “leapfrogged” some ten years forward over the past six months.
Product development spending can be a major item in many company budgets. Global manufacturers of electronic devices often have the means to initiate many projects and run them simultaneously, to eventually continue only those that have prospects to do well in the market. Can such an approach continue?
Sketching ideas is one of the first steps that you have to take when designing a product. Of course, it doesn’t just need to be used in a professional design process; this approach is well worth using in the visual presentation and development of any idea. The advantage of sketching is that you don’t have to be a trained artist to create sketches. With them, design concepts can be presented and explained easily.
You’ve got an idea for a new electronic product or even more: you’ve got a complete design for your solution and all you need to launch the product is a reliable partner who will turn your vision into a physical product. There are plenty of companies which provide such services and you are surely wondering what criteria you need to choose the best partner to work with.
A device designed by VECTOR BLUE HUB, an IP-RF signal modulator, marketed as ROTON, has been recognized by the Polish Institute of Industrial Design as one of the most innovative Polish design solutions presented at the exhibition of 25 Polish Design Process Success Stories.
Beacons are one of the examples of how we have transferred the well-known Bluetooth technology from everyday use to the business environment. We could expand their application on a bigger, more usable scale if the location services Bluetooth were more accurate. As it happens, it is already viable (you can track objects down to centimeters), but it needs more sophisticated technology - the technology which takes its beginning in the first steps of designing beacons hardware.
Recently, we went through the subject of working along with the process in companies. It is very wise of an entrepreneur to set the work in procedures (we know that now), but is it wise from the client's perspective to track down paragraphs? Let us keep an eye on what information clients get when they know their services provider sticks to process stages.
What does it mean that an organization's tasks flow down in a well-thought-through process right to their completion? Is it still a hard-and-fast fossilized thing of the past - a management dodo? Or sort of a business prism which casts the full picture of where the organization goes? Then it is nothing like a fossil but a map. And, putting the first steps in the unknown business endeavor, you would incline to join rather the man with a map than the one without it... In the electronic devices industry, the process - the perfect map - takes three features which will make it not inflexible, but agile.
You stepped into the last stages of your project and already designed signal generators, so you are making yourself ready to send terabytes of data to the end users. Or, let us step backward, you want to distribute your new cutting-edge optical fibers but… with few favorable odds that you are going to connect them with coaxial RF connectors. Indeed, excitement dwindles much when we find ourselves in a system of the legacy infrastructure – old and dusty domestic wires long forgotten. It occurs, however, that there is a way out of such a technological despair with one simple move – even if your project has already arrived on an advanced stage.
After a few years of European electronics manufacturing services (EMS) market stagnation there has come the time for the rebirth. The European EMS industry will have reached 32 billion euro by 2021 as the Reed Electronics Research's report says. ADAMCIT (Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Medical, Control & Industrial and Telecom) sectors in this area will soon be getting bigger and bigger at a compound annual rate of 2.8% on average. Those promising numbers reveal the answers to the questions like: “Why to produce electronic devices and components in Europe?” And the fact that more companies follow those on the winning streak does not provide any answer.
Project in electronic devices industry, if successful, comes from what the client wants and what the market expects. Between them springs up quality – the bridge between a company and its clients. Quality planning is then answering the question how to deliver what is in demand. But why does it take so much to plan this very process, especially in manufacturing electronic devices, and when to call quality enough?
Working as a Scrum Master comes very close to conducting a symphonic orchestra– it only seems like light and frivolous brandishing the baton. In fact, these merry swings only veneer an arduous endeavor followed by tons of knowledge and multitasking – do not look away from the harp, keep an eye on the piano, what are the strings doing?! It is, thus, enough for one person to conduct the development team, but what happens before one sits on the Scrum Master’s chair?
All you need to know about Scrum is that you plan, do, revise, repeat... Simple, is it not? Three roles in the management and five steps in task tackling - repeat. Repeat until you deliver the ultimate value to your client. It is so concise that even the Scrum Guide itself takes roughly two pages of the offhand writing. And yet, that apparent step-by-step simplicity still brings on too many perplexities to leave it undiscussed. Where, thus, lie pains of Scrum implementation and how to achieve quick wins in it?
Agility of projects in great portion depends on planning, short proceedings and updating the status with a huge space for people’s initiative who are engaged in work. But how to harness this revolutionizing freedom to steer where in fact we want to go with our project? Is Product Owner’s role an answer for communicational struggles in agile management? Why is it essential to have such a person in the company ranks?
New technologies have changed our lives. They have. In many cases, they made them easier, more convenient and faster. Of all these things they will never forgive sluggishness, especially when you work in the connectivity industry. Once, a group of sharp minds converged and said enough to the inanity of corporate rusty administration machines hidden deep in companies’ corridors. That’s how agile was born – a mindset which assumes one thing: to act. And we tested some quick methods on how to do it.
Telco operators face many challenges these days. Their biggest nightmare is being unable to provide customers with high-speed services due to existing infrastructure. This case study outlines how we helped multiple-system operators solve this problem.
Telco customers will remain loyal as long as the offer is attractive, the service quality is high, and the portfolio meets their expectations. It is not an easy job for Telco operators to make a scalable offer and prevent customer churn. Here’s how we support Telco operators in achieving their business goals.
Data is becoming the new currency and its transfer from point A to point B should be performed in an effective (cost, speed, size) and above all secure manner. This case study presents how we designed and developed a prototype device that processes data in the cloud.
Over the years, the approach to quality has significantly improved and taken on a whole new meaning. Quality assurance in the whole process today is not only a potential competitive advantage, but is a standard requirement for the market.
