PCB design tools – for reliable printed circuit boards

Nothing affects the PCB’s total cost and reliability as much as the initial design. That is why we have put together our PCB design tools for engineers, designers and anyone else involved in the PCB design or production process. Our current PCB design tools are PCB design guidelines, PCB design mistakes and PCB design checklist.

To help you get it right from the start and make reliable PCBs!

Use our PCB design checklist to make sure the critical areas of the design are covered before starting the production.

PCB Specification

Important features of a reliable PCB

At first sight, PCBs differ little in appearance, irrespective of their inherent quality. It is under the surface that we find the differences so critical to the PCBs’ durability and function during their entire lifecycle. The 14 features in our PCB Specification are essential to make high reliability PCBs.
