PCB celebrates 100 years. Will it pass the hundred billion dollar milestone?

When American inventor Charles Ducas patented a wooden board on which he assembled a circuit made of conductive materials in 1925, he certainly could not have imagined the boom the idea would one day enjoy. If it weren't for covide, the total annual sales of the printed circuit board (PCB) market would realistically be expected to hit the $100 billion milestone a century later - in 2025.

Ecology and PCB manufacturing. Can they be combined?

Without torture, we ourselves are sometimes tired of how "green" issues and sustainability can nowadays find their way into all fields of human activity. We are also amazed at how companies that for years have been proven to be major polluters of the air or the landscape around us suddenly rush to add paragraphs to their strategic documents with environmental themes and chant sustainability. Perhaps that is why we thought we would take a comprehensive look at the broader context, which also affects PCB manufacturing, and shed some light on four key areas where this connection can make sense.

Why it doesn't work or the most common mistakes in PCB schematic design

Why doesn't it work? Every HW developer has asked this question during the course of their development career. What mistakes can lead to non-functionality of the designed electronics? And how can design software help you?
