Design Guidelines

Nothing affects the PCB’s cost and quality as much as the initial design. As modern electronic products are expected to offer more and more advanced functions, while the products themselves are becoming smaller and smaller, this places greater demands on the PCB design, thus amplifying the importance of making the right choices at the design stage.


More than 30% of the Gerber data packs we receive do contain some issues. This generally includes ambiguous information, errors, design rule conflicts, missing information and contradictions between the data and specifications. To prevent getting it wrong from the start, we have put together these design guidelines, to use as a checklist and where ever possible we always recommend that you involve your PCB producer as early as possible within the design stage.

Important notice - When using combinations of parameters, you should always consult your local NCAB technical contact person.

The design guidelines possible to download are for Multilayer boards, HDI boards and Flex / Rigid Flex boards.
