Electronics production and manufacture

- information and articles about techniques used in the assembly and build or manufacture and production of electronics equipment, including component technologies, placement, soldering (including infrared reflow, wave and vapour phase) as well as process monitoring.

Production Process Overview

There are many processes involved in producing a surface mount, of any other electronic circuit board. These processes all need to be combined so that they operate together and provide the highest quality output.

Component placement

One of the major elements in the manufacture of electronic circuit boards is the placement of the components onto the boards. While some printed circuit boards may have only a few components, some of today's electronic circuit boards may use several thousand. This is clearly not suitable for manual assembly and therefore automated techniques must be used.

Soldering

Basic soldering processes

Standards and Lgislation

There are several standards and some legislation covering the manufacture of electronic equipment.

Analysis
