    Autumn 2016 was a busy period  concluding with the delivery of the first PCB revision of a Wi-Fi Access point designed to locate a moving object in 3 Dimensional space as well as time. Containing multiple 2.4 and 5GHZ Wi-Fi channels requiring consistent electrical performance between channels, the PCB...

    If your design has tracking that is resistance sensitive, you need to ensure your track width calculations are based on the minimum finished copper thickness your design can tolerate. We thought we had done this and then we found out the cost of copper had gone up.  We had...
