Almost every electronic device we use today uses PCBs; just like everything else, the problems with PCBs also exist. Even the best-made PCBs will fail, not to mention those made using cheap raw materials and amateur practices. However, even good quality PCBs may face problems, and these problems must be identified and corrected immediately to eliminate any further errors and prevent waste of time and costs. Let us help you understand common PCB failures.
Common PCB failures
Some of the faults that may occur during the manufacturing process include: filling too many components on the circuit board, improper setting of soldering and reflow soldering temperature, failure to maintain sufficient insulation between two metal traces, etc.
Too many components in the circuit board need to follow precise standards, such as placing the components in the correct position and setting the correct spacing between them. If these standards are not followed, the function of the circuit board may be affected, thereby affecting The life cycle of the circuit board.
Incorrect solder or reflow temperature may cause soldering defects, such as improper or broken solder joints, which will cause failure between component leads and PCB pads.
