The 5 Heavyweights in PCB Panel Design

PCB panelization is an essential part of PCB design. For this reason, designers need to consider its potential impact on the PCB assembly process and the PCB itself. PCB panelization is when smaller boards are placed in a connected array (panel) to make it easier to...
