The Differences Between Single and Multi Layer PCBs

There’s no denying that circuit boards are important parts of many products. One study found that printed circuit boards represent, on average, about 31% of a product’s cost. Therefore, it’s important to learn which type of PCB you should be using. Before making this decision it’s a good idea to learn about single, double, and multi layer PCBs. Here is how to determine which type of PCB is right for your project.

  • Single Layer

    This type of PCB contains one layer. This layer involves a combination of substrate, a conductive layer, and a protective coating. In most cases, this conductive layer will be made from copper. Companies might prefer these types of PCBs for their low cost. This type of PCB also works well for companies needing large volumes of boards right away. Being that this type of board features one layer, it does have certain design limitations.
  • Double Layer

    Many companies create products featuring doubleContinue reading

Why Companies Hire Digital Marketing Firms

Companies and brand names big and small, new and established alike, all need to advertise and market themselves. After all, no one can buy a product or hire a service that they haven’t even heard about. Fortunately, today’s companies and brands have more options than ever before, and most often, they take both traditional and innovative routes. New tech like the Internet and mobile devices make digital marketing easy and fast, and traditional methods such as signs, posters, and flyers can efficiently reach out to the people living in a town or city. The Internet didn’t make signs or posters obsolete; most often, companies use them together, to cover each other’s shortcomings. A sign can’t market to anyone not in the area, and many Americans suffer burnout from digital media and might take a break. The topic of signs and posters is separate, though. What might happen when a brand hires a digital marketing agency? A digital marketing agency can offer Continue reading

A Look At Considerations For Time And Why It Matters

Time has long been an incredibly important concept, though time with all the trappings that we recognize today has not always necessarily been present, at least not in its modern sense. In fact, time is so old that it can be traced up to 6,000 years in the past. The ancient Egyptian people were some of the very first to tell time, and they used obelisks as a form of sundial – though a primitive form – to keep track of time as it shifted over the course of the day. However, even mechanical clocks likely came about much earlier than you might have suspected, as such clocks were first ever invented all the way back in the 1300s, on the continent of Europe. In the many years that have passed since, of course, time and the way that we keep track of it has only continued to grow and evolve.

In fact, alternative time tracking and schedules have even been introduced in some parts of the world, though such methods of tracking time have typically failed. For instance, the Soviet Union once Continue reading
