Choosing the Right PCB Laminate
PCB laminates are manufactured by curing under pressure and temperature layers of cloth or paper with thermoset resin to form an integral final piece of uniform thickness. Varying cloth weaves, cloth thickness, and resin percentage are used to achieve the desired final thickness and dielectric characteristics. It is important to choose a right laminate for your new PCBs during your design process, because at the end of the day, you will connect all of your components in one circuit board and test its performance. A right laminate can ensure that the functionality of your printed circuit boards can meet your satisfaction, and can have an influence on your budget of a new project. When you are in the design stages for your PCB, you’d better research each type of laminates and talk with your manufacturer to ensure that the laminate you choose is compatible with their manufacturing and assembly process.
