HDI Printed Circuit Boards
High density interconnect (HDI) technology enhances the functionality of printed circuit boards (PCBs) by optimizing the space that’s available and increasing the number of circuits that can be included. As the market demands faster and more reliable electronics, HDI technology is growing increasingly important for developing newer and better products.
Redstar Worldwide coordinates with industry-leading manufacturers to bring consumers unparalleled access to design and engineering support, cost-efficiency, and streamlined shipment schedules. Below, their team shares some of the best reasons to start using innovative HDI technology today.
Advantages of HDI Technology for PCBs
HDI technology is a decisive response to the ever-changing consumer demand. With HDI technology, designers can incorporate more components on each side of a raw printed circuit board. By creating smaller components and placing vias more efficiently, HDI technology frees up real estate on the printed circuit board so users can experience improved functionality and data storage. When circuit board components are positioned closer together, signals travel faster between units, which ultimately reduces crossing delays and minimizes signal loss.
HDI PCB Vs. Standard PCB
HDI PCBs are more interconnected and require a smaller surface area. Even they’re more compact, they provide the same processing power as a standard PCB. Thanks to their convenient size and portability, HDI PCBs have numerous applications, from smartphones to pacemakers. The higher density of interconnectedness also makes the hardware architecture more efficient. These two advantages make it possible for manufacturers to design innovative new products within specific dimension requirements and with accelerated processing speed and ability.
HDI PCBs also integrate via-in-pad and blind via technology. This configuration keeps components closer and preserves the integrity of the signal and decrease signal scatter. Stacked vias also give HDI PCBs effective resistance against variable environmental conditions, which means the finished product is less prone to errors and more durable.
Additionally, HDI PCBs are more cost-efficient than standard PCBs. Because a four-layer through-hole board with HDI delivers the same functionality as a standard eight-layer board, companies don’t need to spend money on large circuit boards to reap the benefits of one. Overall, this built-in cost saving lets businesses conserve resources without sacrificing the quality of their product.
