With technology advancing at such a rapid pace, it seems like yesterday’s greatest thing is tomorrow’s old news. Production methods are constantly being rendered obsolete and abandoned. Yet some of these old techniques, while not used as commonly as they used to be, endure because they offer certain benefits that newer technologies can’t beat.
One such method is through-hole PCB assembly. Through-hole technology (THT) became the industry standard in the 1940s and reigned supreme until the invention of Surface Mount Technology in the 1980s. Many thought through-hole technology would be phased out, since SMT allows for the creation of smaller, faster PCBs at less cost. Yet the benefits of through-hole PCB assembly have kept it from becoming obsolete.Read moreComments 0

To the untrained eye all PCBs may look alike, but there is no such thing as a “standard” PCB. Each one is designed for a unique function and end use, and have to be designed to perform that function in the space available. Nearly every aspect of a PCB is customizable, including its size. The size and thickness of a board is determined by the circuit requirements, and you can also create multi-layer boards by putting several thin boards together.
Even PCB material types come in a variety of options, depending on your needs. While certain PCB material types are used more often than others, they may not meet the specific needs of your product. At Telan Corporation, we can help you choose the PCB that is best for you.Read moreComments 0
There are several PCB manufacturing methods that a PCB can be submitted to before reaching the final product. These methods include preparing the board’s surface, placing components, soldering, cleaning, and inspection and testing. Telan Corporation has been providing reliable PCB manufacturing methods for over 35 years. We offer a variety of assembly and solder techniques to meet the unique needs of your PCB.Read moreComments 0
According to industry statistics, new electronic products have field failure rates of up to 15-20% in their first year, with fatigue accounting for up to 20% of those product failures. These failures lead to costly warranty replacements or even product recalls. As Benjamin Franklin once said, “an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.” Is your Northern New Jersey PCB assembly service taking active steps to ensure your PCB is up to its task? The majority of electronic devices are prone to some degree of vibration, and the PCB assembly process plays a major role in determining how much vibration a PCB experiences.Read moreComments 0
