There are a wide range of soldering methods used to attach components to a PCB. All by way of-hole parts may be hand soldered, making them favored for prototyping the place dimension, weight, and using the precise parts that may be used in excessive quantity production aren't issues. Areas that should not be soldered may be covered with solder resist (solder mask).

Copper thickness of PCBs could be specified immediately or as the burden of copper per area (in ounce per sq. foot) which is less complicated to measure. One ounce per square foot is 1.344 mils or 34 micrometers thickness. Heavy copper is a layer exceeding three ounces of copper per ft2, or roughly zero.0042 inches (4.2 mils, 105 μm) thick. Heavy copper layers are used for prime present or to assist dissipate warmth. Aluminum, or metallic core board or insulated metallic substrate (IMS), clad with thermally conductive thin dielectric - used for elements requiring vital cooling - power switches, LEDs.

Consists of usually single, typically double layer skinny circuit board based on e.g. FR-4, laminated on aluminum sheet metallic, commonly zero.eight, 1, 1.5, 2 or 3 mm thick. The thicker laminates typically additionally come with thicker copper metalization. A minimal PCB for a single part, used for prototyping, is known as a breakout board.

'Undercut' occurs when etchant attacks the thin edge of copper under the resist; this can cut back conductor widths and trigger open-circuits. Where metallic plating is used as a resist, it could possibly 'overhang' which may trigger quick-circuits between adjoining traces when intently spaced. Chemical etching is often done with ammonium persulfate or ferric chloride. For PTH (plated-by way of holes), extra steps of electroless deposition are done after the holes are drilled, then copper is electroplated to construct up the thickness, the boards are screened, and plated with tin/lead. The tin/lead turns into the resist leaving the bare copper to be etched away.

In addition to repelling solder, solder resist also supplies safety from the environment to the copper that would otherwise be uncovered. Proper plating or floor finish choice may be important to process yield, the quantity of rework, area failure rate, and reliability. The etchant removes copper on all surfaces not protected by the resist.

Dry movie solder masks is similar to the dry movie used to image the PWB for plating or etching. After being laminated to the PWB surface it is imaged and developed as LPI. Once but not commonly used, because of its low accuracy and resolution, is to display print epoxy ink.
