Once the PCB design is ready, the next step is to send this data to a PCB fabrication company. It is important to ensure the correct bare boards are supplied to the PCB assembling company. The PCB panel design should be developed keeping in mind the machinery that will be used to assemble the final PCBs. The machinery used in this process requires tooling strips on both sides of the board. It helps secure components at their correct places.
Provide maximum details of the panel size. High level accuracy can be maintained if you place fiducial marks for effective vision alignment. It lets the machine determine if the board has been loaded properly. Provide details of the breakouts and their positions to inform how to remove the panel once its assembly is complete. Effective designing of the panel is necessary to avoid problems like board heating from integrated power demands.
