The e-commerce industry in India welcomes the Indian government’s decision to increase the basic customs duty on various electronic goods and components. With the rise in import duty, local manufacturers now have the opportunity to produce electronic products globally at competitive prices.
What is the PCB Fabrication Process?
Now, let’s discuss the PCB fabrication process. It is important to understand the connections and steps involved in turning your schematic or idea into a tangible product before diving straight into production. Before delving into PCB fabrication, it would be beneficial to define a few other terms and understand their interrelationships.
- PCB Development: PCB development can be defined as the process of taking a circuit board design from the design to the production. This typically includes three stages: design, manufacturing, and testing. And for all but the simplest designs, this process is iterative with the objective of arriving at the highest quality design within the development time allotted.
- PCB Manufacturing: PCB manufacturing is the construction of your board design. This is a two-step process that begins with board fabrication and ends with printed circuit board assembly (PCBA).
- PCB Testing: PCB testing, sometimes referred to as bring up, is the third stage of PCB development; performed after manufacturing. Testing during development is done to evaluate the board’s ability to perform its intended operational functionality. During this stage, any errors or areas where the design should be modified to improve performance are identified and another cycle is initiated to incorporate the design changes.
- PCB Assembly: PCB assembly or PCBA is the second step or stage of PCB manufacturing in which the board components are mounted to the bare board through a soldering process.
The PCB industry suggests the government that impose the same basic custom duty of electronic items to PCB.
