How many parts do you need for PCB assembly?

How many parts do you need for PCB assembly?
Surface mount assembly robots are amazing machines. The pick and place heads in the fastest, highest volume SMT machines travel so fast, that they are just short of supersonic. The placement logic takes into consideration the distortion and swing of the hardened steel head and nozzle, and deposits the component at just the right point in the deflection arc. That kind of speed demands precision.

Stretchable electronics: everything you need to know

Stretchable electronics: everything you need to know
The term Stretchable Electronics conceals great diversity. Indeed, it is an umbrella term that refers to a whole host of emerging electronic materials, components and devices that exhibit some degree of mechanical stretchability. Stretchable electronics has been in the making for than a decade, but it up to now it has been mostly a solution looking for a problem.  Author: Dr Khasha Ghaffarzadeh, Research Director, IDTechEx

PCB boards: what makes a good fiducial mark?

PCB boards: what makes a good fiducial mark? Chief Technology Champion at Screaming Circuits Duane Benson explains. Accountants may have a fiduciary responsibility, but that really has nothing to do with PC board assembly. Change the 'ry' to a 'ls', however, and you get fiducials, which does have something to do with PCB assembly.
