Pcb fabrication and assembly

The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing a lot for established companies and startups. A lot of this is so new that the way businesses approach new printed circuit board assembly (PCB) projects has some challenges that are not present in traditional circuit board assembly projects.

According to a new piece by TechTarget, there are differences in how PCB projects are started because of the differences in traditional PCBs and PCBs that are developed for the IoT. Whereas traditional PCBs are flat and have a bigger surface area, newer PCBs for the IoT have a different circuit board assembly process and are made of flex circuit set ups.

A look at the IoT PCB layout:
