PCB Finishes
Advanced Assembly
There are many parts of a circuit board—the laminate that creates the foundation for the entire board, the copper traces that do the work, the solder mask to make soldering easier, and the silkscreen to convey ideas, words, and images to the end user. The finish of a board, which is sometimes overlooked, is the interface between the board and the components that make the board function as desired. To the untrained eye, there is not much variation in how different finishes look or perform on a circuit board, but, with time and experience, subtle and not-so-subtle differences emerge.
