PCB Design Services

Microart has been providing PCB Design Services to Canada and the U.S. for over 30 Years.

With the evolution of new technologies and the miniaturization of electronics, PCB's used in all products have become more compact with higher levels of sophistication. Therefore, it becomes more important to do PCB designs in such a way that they meet the requirements of modern electronic circuits. In order to formulate an effective PCB design layout, several design principles need to be implemented. At Microart Services Inc., we ensure proficient PCB design & layout utilizing the latest PCB design techniques and technologies. We provide high-quality Printed Circuit Board design solutions in adherence to the IPC standards, ensuring the highest reliability, and signal integrity.

Designing to our customer’s specifications, our highly skilled team is focused on providing quality designs and prototypes to ensure that your project is completed within a time effective and cost efficient manner. When you choose Microart to engineer your project, we review with you all of your requirements in detail and provide you an opportunity to discuss your plans and ask many questions utilizing our experience and expertise to fully maximize your products potential. We realize that confidentiality is a major concern and will sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) enabling us to speak freely about your intimate project details and the different technologies we have to offer you.

 

Microart’s 4 Design Rules For Ultimate Manufacturability

DESIGN FOR TESTING

DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURE
DESIGN FOR ASSEMBLY

The PCB Design Process at Microart

SCHEMATIC CAPTURE

Schematic capturing is the first stage involved in the PCB layout, design & development. Circuit designs are drawn on paper and processed using the schematic editor in a computer. We utilize various types of the schematic capture software for schematic capturing. After the completion of the schematic capture process, a complete electronic design is stored in the file, which is converted into a netlist file. The file features interconnectivity information about component pins or circuit nodes present in the electronic circuit.

PCB Component Footprint Creation

Component footprint creation helps determine the space available for component placement. A suitable mounting scheme is decided based on component footprint creation. Our PCB designers use Surface-mount technology (SMT) or Through-hole Technology (THT) to place components on the circuit board. The footprint creation helps determine the number of layers, which are needed on the board. We can provide PCBs from a single layer up to 30 layers.

PCB ROUTING

This is the next stage after the component placement on the circuit board. Our layout designers utilize a PCB software to route the physical connections between all the components present on the board. The software makes use of netlist derived from the schematic to route physical connections. Our vast experience and expertise enable us to incorporate simulations and complex routing in the PCBs.

PCB Verification & Analysis

This is an important step in any PCB manufacturing process. Our PCB layout designer ensures the assembly is free from any kinds of defects. We offer a comprehensive range of testing and inspection services. Below given are our services.

• In circuit testing
• X-ray testing
• Function testing
• AOI

Our advanced testing capabilities enable us to test complex circuit boards effectively. Our testing services adhere to ASIC/FPGA design and testing guidelines. We are also IP C1710 certified. This allows us to provide quality PCB's to our clients in diverse industries.

Additional Capabilities

In addition to the above-mentioned, we can offer the following:

• Controlled impedance lines, differential planes, and high frequency lines
• 3D models to detect signal interferences
• SMPS ( Switching Mode Power Supplies) for improved power consumption
• Incorporating matched length traces, stripline, microstrip, DDR, SATA,USB, and Ethernet in PCBs

Deliverables

The following are the deliverables provided in the form of manuals or electronic data.
