The foundation of the electronics industry, rigid printed circuit boards are used in a majority of products, and can now be made in a wide array of materials to work with most applications. American Circuit Technology has been building Rigid PCBs for as long as we’ve been around, from standard single and double-sided FR-4 boards to 40 layer exotic material boards to HDI, metal core and heavy copper PCBs, our expertise in manufacturing rigid PC boards is second to none!
Single Sided PCB
Even since their appearance in 1950, single sided PCBs still control the world market in total piece volume. These boards are ideal for rapid productions with their quick design and manufacturability characteristics. They are the most economical route for anyone in the electronics industry.
American Circuit Technology produces prototype, midrange and high volume Single Sided circuit boards, with a copper thickness up to ten ounces. We’re able to produce boards that have operating temperatures ranges of 130 C to 230 C. The boards can be finished with one of many options including Organic surface protectant (OSP), Immersion Silver, Tin, and Gold plating along with both leaded or lead-free Hot Air Solder Level (HASL).
Double Sided PCBs
Double sided boards have become the staple of the industry as they lead the way to higher technological applications. With its quick adoption it became an industry must with advantages of expanded design capability along reduced physical sizes. The applications range from fine line surface mounting, low and high temperature ranges, higher copper builds and solder coatings.
Multilayer printed circuit boards have evolved entire industries, allowing designers a more dynamic range of interconnects and applications. Which has allowed modern computing to grow at such a rapid pace, resulting in the technologically advance world we currently live in.
The range of material combinations have allowed for further expansions on usage with basic epoxy glass to exotic ceramic fills, in addition to the ability to be built on ceramic, copper, and aluminum. Other benefits are the the blind and buried vias that are commonly produced, along with pad on via technology.
