Many things have a standard, so PCB is no exception. When it comes to product size, the standard may be very important, because it may have the attributes or functions it must meet. So what is a standard PCB? I will introduce it to you slowly.
What is the standard PCB thickness?
Many contract manufacturers may say that the standard PCB thickness is 1.57 mm, or about 0.062 inch. This is true to a certain extent. Obviously, this is the size of bakelite board manufactured in the early stage of circuit board manufacturing, and this size has been fixed. Therefore, we can call it the historical standard PCB thickness. Today, board sizes are larger or smaller than the standard, but the standard may still be the most common thickness in design.
Today, more precisely, there are a number of common or standard PCB thicknesses. These include 0.031 inch (0.78 mm), 0.062 inch (1.57 mm) and 0.093 inch (2.36 mm). Depending on your choice of PCB manufacturing and assembly services, you may be able to manufacture circuit boards of other thicknesses. Many design and manufacturing factors need to be considered when determining PCB thickness.
Design factors affecting PCB thickness
- Copper thickness
- Sheet metal
- Quantity PCB layer
- Signal type
- Through hole type
- Operating environment
Manufacturing factors affecting PCB thickness
- Drilling equipment
- Copper thickness
- Number of layers
- Depanetization method
