PCB boards for medical devices

The healthcare industry is growing rapidly thanks to medical devices and technology. These devices and technologies require printed circuit boards (PCBS) to include complex designs, robust structures, and tremendous power. When medical companies contact PCB manufacturers to meet these requirements, PCB suppliers typically recommend double-sided printed circuit boards for medical device applications. What makes this type of PCB an ideal solution for medical devices?

PCB dual panels became the understanding solution

As the name suggests, a two-sided PCB consists of dielectric layers with two copper circuit layers on each side. The copper layer is further protected by the solder mask layer. This design helps PCB designers improve PCB layouts in a variety of ways, including:

Both the top and bottom layers can be used for perforated wiring.

Traces can be closer together and more numerous.

Circuit board edges can be plated to improve grounding and shielding connections.

Copper with a thickness of over 140 microns and up to 3.2 mm can be used in PCB structures.

Type of two-sided PCB

In addition to these points, PCB manufacturers can also create different types of PCB using double-sided circuits. These types may include:

Solder coated PCB

Fine wire surface mount PCB

Ultra high copper build PCB

High and low temperature PCB

Understand the advantages of double-sided PCB

Design solutions provide multiple benefits to PCB manufacturers and customers.

Relatively low cost

Higher circuit density

Intermediate circuit complexity

More flexibility in design

Reduce board size (reduce cost)

These differences confirm the application of double-sided PCB in medical applications. This type of PCB supports the operation of medical devices such as a handheld blood test, chest wall oscillating system and deep brain stimulation system.

Through the above explanation, do you think double-sided PCB board is used most in medical equipment? Of course, there are also a lot of sophisticated medical equipment, using more sophisticated PCB boards, which are required by functions.
