PCB Design & Layout

From the simplest to the most complex

No matter how big or small your project is, Explora can provide you with professional CAD services for printed circuit boards, from the simplest circuits up to the most complex multilayer PCB.

With more than 20 years of experience in circuits design and a very good knowledge of assembly constraints and IPC standards, the work on your circuit will be done with both rigor and quality.

A complete PCB design process

We work in close collaboration with designers, circuits manufacturers and assemblers to insure that the circuits respect mechanical design constraints, manufacturability, testability and are assembled according to the highest standards.

  • Schematics capture.
  • Flexible circuits (PCB-Flex), surface mount (SMT) and through-hole circuits designs.
  • Complete 3D modeling of circuits and components to allow high density designs within complex mechanical products.
  • Components placement and circuit routing according to IPC standards.
  • Prototype PCBs.

Circuit design optimization

  • Electromagnetic Interference and Radio Frequency Interference constraints (EMI/RFI).
  • RoHS compliance.
  • Design for testability (DFT).
  • Complex mechanical and environmental constraints.

In-Depth Technological Know-How

The PCB design team at Explora is part of a multidisciplinary group of engineers that already designed high performance electronic boards based on many different processors (XScale, StrongArm, i.MX, etc) used for platforms with operating systems.

  • High density printed circuit boards.
  • High speed printed circuit boards.
  • Differential and controlled impedances.
  • Same length and balanced traces group.
  • Multilayer boards using micro, blind and buried vias.
  • Analog circuits and switching power supplies.
  • BGA and Fine Pitch technologies.
  • Auto-routing.

Manufacturing support and project management

  • Selection and qualitication of suppliers for PCB Manufacturing.
  • PCB inspection according to IPC standard.
  • Purchase and manufaturing contract management.
  • Final assembly, board prototypes, tests and pre-production.
