Especially during development fabricating a prototype quickly and with flexibility is key. This allows developers to test ideas and easily make changes. The Rapid Prototyping method turns a sheer idea into a sample circuit board, which is ultimately used to manufacture the new product.
The CAD software prepares the specific layout data for the circuit board prototypes. Once the circuit board material has been selected the circuit board can be fabricated. Depending on the requirements the material is structured with a circuit board plotter or a laser system. A laser system is used for ultra-fine structures and RF applications.
Once the circuit board - single- or double-sided - has the conducting paths the circuit is tested. If faults are detected or changes are requested the data layout can quickly be modified. Thus a new prototype is created quick and easy, without the use of chemicals – and your data always remains in house.
The sample allows quick advances in project development, and even small batches can be produced using the Rapid Prototyping method. The remaining process steps
in in house PCB prototyping quickly produce a functional circuit board.
3 Advantages of Inhouse PCB Prototyping
- Reduce your fabrication of PCB prototypes from weeks to minutes!
- Be independent from service suppliers and gain flexibility!
- Solve your most complex and diverse design tasks with the LPKF prototyping products in the most easiest and convenient way.
