Home PanelizingPanelizing

In order to increase the throughput of PCB manufacturing and SMT lines, PCBs are often panelized so that they consist of many replicated designes, this PCB cluster is called a panel. The large panel is broken up or "depaneled" as a certain step in the process - depending on the product, it may happen right after SMT process, after in-circuit test ICT, after soldering of through-hole elements, or even right before the final case-up of the assembly.

Panel type

Single design Panel

It’s free of charge to require us to panelize, email us the requirements, for example boards array in both X/Y coordinate, technique border, fiducial mark and so on….Then we will return the panel in pdf or gerber format for your final confirmation.

Multi-design Panel:

1.      Multi-design panelization must be done at customer’s side, we have no such boards merge service.

2.      Limit of 4 different designs per main panel

3.      We charge additional fee for each design you add to the panel, for example 2-layer board we charge $30/design.

4.      If all designs on the panel are square and the same size, V score is a good way or route connections

5.      Lead time maybe 1 day or 2 days delayed.

Panelization methods

The main considerations are V-scoring technique, routing with tab connections or with bridge connections, you can separate panel with light to moderate pressure after assembly, each method has its advantages and disadvantages:

V-scoring:

One of the main benefits from V-Scoring is that has a better panel utilization compared to the routing technique, as V-scoring don’t need spacing between small units while routing requires a certain width of the routing bit.

Routing:

It applied to all kind of board shape, while V-scoring technique only works with rectangular shape boards, also the routed board edge is very smooth except for the connection area, while V-cut will cause the board edge with burr after you breaking the units away.
