PCB DESIGN

Scientific Solutions can provide specialized PCB design services including: ultra low noise designs, analog, digital and mixed signal, RF, and hybrid mechatronic interfaces, AC line interfaces with heavy rules based design for compliance requirements, and attention to design for manufacturing preferences.

With LPKF rapid PCB prototyping tools in house we are able to design and test many new PCB's designs for form, fit, and function, in just minutes! 

 

We use Altium PCB designer tools and we are an official Altium Service Bureau.

HEAVY RULES BASED DESIGNS

HEAVY RULES BASED DESIGNS

This multi-layer, mixed signal, design required clearance rules for high voltage isolation and compliance requirements.

3D RENDERED VIEW

3D RENDERED VIEW

The design included an ARM processor and low level analog sensing and processing circuitry.

MECHANICAL ALIGNMENT AND CONSTRAINT REQUIREMENTS

MECHANICAL ALIGNMENT AND CONSTRAINT REQUIREMENTS

Mechanical constraints and mechanical design requirements is no problem. Send us your mechanical CAD files!

3D RENDERED VIEW

Low RF emissions and EMI susceptibility was also a requirement of this design.

MONSTER PCB FOR AUTOMATED TEST FIXTURE

MONSTER PCB FOR AUTOMATED TEST FIXTURE

Large or small, we have worked at both ends of the PCB size spectrum.

COLLABORATION WITH INDUSTRIAL DESIGNERS

COLLABORATION WITH INDUSTRIAL DESIGNERS

We often have the PCB designed and prototyped long before plastic parts are available so that we can develop and test the product firmware well in advance!

4 LAYER PCB

4 LAYER PCB

This 4 layer PCB was designed for the previous CAD model and includes an MCU, and advanced high current, force feedback, transducers.

32BIT MCU 4 LAYER WITH HV AND PRECISION ANALOG SENSORS

32BIT MCU 4 LAYER WITH HV AND PRECISION ANALOG SENSORS

This little itty-bitty PCB had a little bit of everything; high voltage clearance requirements, fast lithium battery chargers, low level amplifier/filters, and a 32 bit MCU !

A famous painter once told his students that: "To be a good artist you must make at least two thousand mistakes; so get busy and start making them".

4 LAYER, 10oz, HIGH VOLTAGE,  MIXED SIGNAL

4 LAYER, 10oz, HIGH VOLTAGE, MIXED SIGNAL

Here we have a multi-layer 10oz Cu, high voltage, PCB that we designed for a client. Very heavy rules assigned to this design!

10oz Cu PCB RENDERING

10oz Cu PCB RENDERING

This is a 3D rendering of the previous PCB. This PCB was only 10oz copper; we've designed boards to 16oz rules!

2 LAYER, 10oz Cu, 250AMP RULES!

2 LAYER, 10oz Cu, 250AMP RULES!

Here is a very specialized high current PCB. Designed to accommodate 250 Amps, it has 3 onboard 1.2KV 355Amp Thyristors!

GAS SENSOR PCB DESIGN

GAS SENSOR PCB DESIGN

We did the electronic design, PCB design, and firmware development, for this gas sensing product.

THROUGH HOLE? IMPERIAL DIMENSIONS?

THROUGH HOLE? IMPERIAL DIMENSIONS?

Here we have designed a signal critical, 4 layer, mixed signal PCB with through hole components. We typically do metric SMT designs but are prepared for any desirable format.
