In depth guide to PCB Vias and PCB design

Recommended Posts

Hello friends

I have written a detailed guide on PCB vias. The concept of the via is intuitive and could be easily understood, however in order to design the most suitable via for a specific board requires profound understanding of the PCB manufacturing process. The cost of the PCB, reliability and the manufacturer's yield are all dependent on proper via design. 

This is one of the reasons why complex boards require us to pay relatively high "tooling". The manufacturer needs to learn our gerbers and inspect our via design and in some cases even to make changes prior to manufacturing. The customer many times doesn't even know his PCB vias were changed, unless he specifically requests to inspect the production gerbers. 

This guide is suitable for anyone who wish to strengthen his knowledge in PCB design. Any comments please write to me freely.
