5 Things you should learn about Advanced Circuits PCB


January 28, 2022

PCBs play a major role in electronic design, and in recent years, the development of advanced circuits PCB has increased. There are two types of PCBs: conventional and advanced PCBs. However, many people in need of advanced PCBs have little knowledge of the types, application areas, and more.

1. Advanced Circuits Material

Advanced printed circuit boards material differs from those of ordinary printed circuit boards. It needs materials that handle power and heat effectively. It is used in environments where heat and power are incredibly high.

They are useful in equipment that vibrates a lot; that is why the choice of material used differs. Some of the best materials used are 3M, Rogers material. They meet international standards, making them the best for advanced circuits PCB.

2. Special Size

As mentioned earlier, advanced PCBs are essential for use in areas where high accuracy, performance, and precision are necessary. Unlike conventional PCBs with lots of faults and errors, it should not apply to advanced circuits.

So, when designing high-level PCBs, your contract manufacturer has to meet your specific size need. They should check on the thickness and the number of layers and ensure there is none or minimal error. The reason being they are not ordinary boards.

3. Types of advanced PCB circuits

There are various PCBs, each with its usage, manufacturing expectations, and materials used. When designing advanced circuits PCB, the number of layers is very important because it is related to performance. For instance, 4 layers PCBs perform better than 2 layer PCBs. The types of advanced PCBs available are;

  • Multilayer boards

These boards have three or more double-stacked-up panels. Theoretically, it can have many plates as needed.

  • High-frequency boards

These tyle of PCBs carry high-frequency signals ranging above 1GHZ.

  • Rigid and flexible boards

Rigid boards can’t bend or twist and are ideal for use where bending is necessary. On the other hand, flexible boards easily bend and are used where bending is a must.

  • High-speed signal transmission

These are circuit boards whose rising and falling length signals are higher than the transmission line length.

4. Test standards

After designing advanced circuits PCB, as a designer, you will need to do some tests if you don’t want to release your products with manufacturing faults and full of errors.

By conducting tests, it’s easy to identify mistakes and rectify them before publishing products. You have to adhere to IPC standards used across the electronics field for PCB assembly, PCB design, customer standards, and manufacturing.

5. Industries covered by advanced circuits

Advanced circuit boards tend to be used in more industries than ordinary printed ones. Unlike conventional PCBs, advanced circuit boards are used in high-end electronics components that speed and precision are paramount.

The areas that use advanced circuit boards are; automotive electronics, communication equipment, medical facilities, industrial equipment, and the military field.

On the other hand, standard PCBs are used in watches, tapes, adhesives, and carbonless copy paper.


Advanced Circuits boards are gaining demand across various industries compared to standard PCBs. That’s because of its necessity in high-intensity fields. Get in touch! We at LHD Technology are ready to help you on your next advanced printed circuit boards project.
