While electronic components and assemblies such as printed circuit boards (PCB) have radically changed how we design devices and the heights of capability they can reach, all are still at the whim of volatile electric charges which can easily lead to damage and destruction if ample protection is not in place. For PCBs in particular, the most common cause of failures is electrostatic discharge (ESD), that of which can cause permanent and irreparable damage to system components even when conditions are light. In this blog, we will discuss ESD and its effects in more detail, as well as how one can implement protection for their various electronic components and integrated circuits.

Power Distribution Units (PDUs) provide the invaluable function of regulating power across industrial electrical systems. Too much or too little power at a particular part of the circuit can create many problems, so it is important to be able to control the amount of electrical energy powering all devices in the system. Power distributions control the flow of power to combat issues such as power surges, inefficiency, low uptime, and electromagnetic interference. Whether PDUs are built into the device or must be added separately, they function in multiple ways to achieve the same end goal of optimizing device productivity. By monitoring power flow, devices can perform continuously without disruption.

A printed circuit board (PCB) can be considered the backbone of countless electronic assemblies, coming in the form of a structure consisting of conductive and insulating layers. With printed circuit boards, various electronics can be securely attached on a single component, and reliable electrical connections ensure interconnectivity and powering. With their capabilities, printed circuit boards find use in countless applications that range from small consumer devices to large industrial machinery. In this blog, we will discuss the primary components that are installed on printed circuit boards, allowing you to better understand their use and importance.

Having the best connection or cable layout for your electronics is always a plus--unless you do not have the appropriate connectors to do so. When attaching a wire or cable to a connection point without proper application, it can directly impact the relaying of signals and discourage reliability. To avoid unreliable connection within an industrial setting, methods such as soldering or crimping can be performed. While improving quality and providing long-lasting results, both applications come with their own sets of drawbacks. To best determine whether soldering or welding should be used for connecting your wires assemblies, we will go over how each works, and the differences that set them apart.
