Customized Circuit Frames for PCB Repair

Oct 17, 2009

BEST Inc. announces the release of a new line of circuit frames for PCB repair. These circuit frames can be custom laser engraved to match the pads or trace areas requiring repair. The patterns on the frames can accommodate spaces/traces down to 1 mil (0.025 mm). These circuit frames are designed to be used for both tin-lead and lead-free processes as they are bright tin finished. The cut outs replace elements on 1 oz. copper PCBs.

The primary advantage to users of this new development is that customized patterns can be laser machined with lot sizes as low as one in a few business days whereas previous chemical etching processes required two to three weeks and minimum lot sizes of 12-plus frames to be processed.

The micro-etched surface bonded to the PCB exhibits the same assured adhesion strength of BESTs' previous circuit frame designs.

"Customers like the fact that they can custom order frequently repaired areas thereby saving time," claims Katy Radcliff, Product Line Manager of Best Inc.
