Yageo raises prices again: R-chip resistance rises 80%

Yageo raises prices again: R-chip resistance rises 80% ​ According to the Economic Daily, the supply chain revealed that Yageo increased the price of multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC) by 50%, and recently increased the price of chip resistor products (R-Chip) by 70% to 80%. It will take effect in March. Higher than the MLCC, it is also higher than the original expected increase of about 50%. Yageo resistance soared 70% to 80% Yageo raised the quotations of two major products one after [...]

Why multilayer PCB are even layers?

Why multilayer PCBs are even layers? PCB boards are single-sided, double-sided, and multi-layered. The number of layers of the multi-layer board is not limited. Currently, there are more than 100 layers of PCB, and the common multi-layer PCB is four-layer and six-layer boards. Then why do you have the question “Why are PCB multilayer boards all even?” Relatively speaking, even-numbered PCBs do have more PCBs than odd-numbered layers, and they are more advantageous.   1. The cost is lower Because of the lack [...]

FPC has become the future development trend of the PCB industry, with a global output value of 13.8 billion US dollars

FPC has become the future development trend of the PCB industry, with a global output value of 13.8 billion US dollars   The global PCB industry will continue to grow in the new round of growth cycle. The emergence of more and more innovative application terminal electronic products will provide more market growth points for the global PCB industry. According to forecasts, the board size will reach 64.6 billion US dollars in 2017; China accounts for 29.1 billion US dollars. The relatively [...]

Global rigid copper clad sales in 2018

    Global rigid copper clad sales in 2018 According to Prismark’s statistics released in June 2019, global rigid CCL sales reached US$12.402 billion in 2018 (see Figure 1, Table 1), with an annual growth rate of 2.2%. After a double-digit growth in the year of 2017 (19.1%), in 2018, it returned to the original trend of “slow growth”. Figure 1: Table 1   In 2018, sales of global special and special resin-based copper clad laminates (mainly referred to as high-frequency high-speed copper clad laminates [...]

China IC design analysis: Huawei is the leader

China IC design analysis: Huawei is the leader   IC design is one of the most prosperous development in semiconductor industry chain of China. In 2018, China’s IC design value reached RMB 251.9 billion, an increase of 21.46% over the past year. In the past few years, it has maintained a growth rate of over 20%. In terms of global weight, China’s IC design output value has increased from 12.9% in 2012 to 31.5% in 2017, a significant increase.   Among the IC design [...]

How to identify original IC and refurbished IC?

How to identify original IC and refurbished IC? In the process of R&D or learning, we often need to buy a small number of films. At this time, we can only find goods in the electronic market. The goods on the market are mixed. We should learn to distinguish between good and bad. Let me explain some problems faced when buy IC: 1.Grinding IC These chips are very similar to new films. The size of the printed text and graphics on the [...]

How many types of flexible circuit boards are there?

How many types of flexible circuit boards are there?   At present, flexible circuits mainly have four types of single-sided FPC, double-sided FPC, multi-layer FPC and rigid flexible circuit boards. 1. Single-sided flexible PCB Single-sided flexible board is the lowest cost, when the board is not required for high electrical performance. For single-sided wiring, a single-sided flexible board should be used. It has a chemically etched conductive pattern, and the conductive pattern layer on the surface of the flexible insulating substrate is a [...]

How to reduce PCB manufacturing cost?

When we design a project, we care more about layout and wiring, and often overlook the additional PCB manufacturing cost in the design. This post discusses which factors affect the price of pcb in the design and avoid increasing costs for customers. 1.Number of wiring layers. It’s easy to do layout if number of layers is much, but the price rises linearly with the number of layers. The higher the number of layers, the more the price doubles. 2.Through hole. As [...]

5G is coming, PCB is facing new challenges

In 2019, the news of 5G is endless, or the operator is launching a large-scale test, or the terminal manufacturer is releasing a 5G mobile phone. South Korea officially launched the 5G service for the public recently, It is also announcing the opening of the 5G commercial screen. 5G commercialization brings unlimited market opportunities to upstream and downstream industries. As a key interconnect for assembling electronic components, how will PCB be in the 5G market? Is the technical requirements of [...]

What’s the difference between PCB and PCBA?

I believe that many people are familiar with PCB circuit boards, which may be heard frequently in daily life, but may not be familiar with PCBA, and may even be confused with PCB. So what is a PCB? How did PCBA evolve? and what is the difference between PCB and PCBA? Let’s take a closer look below. About PCB PCB is the short name of Printed Circuit Board. Because it is made by electronic printing, it is called “printing” circuit board. [...]
