Cirexx has the knowledge and capabilities to manufacture printed circuit boards (PCBs) for all types of autonomous applications. This includes consumer and military projects, equipment, and transportation that’s used on land and in air, space, and sea.
How PCBs are Used in Autonomous Applications:
- Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR)
- Navigation systems
- Camera technologies
- Anti-lock braking
- Crash-avoidance systems
Types of PCB Substrates Used in Autonomous Applications:
It’s extremely important to consider the type of substrate and materials used in a PCB for autonomous applications. Substrate refers to the supporting material that holds the components and traces.
PCBs for autonomous applications demand a higher signal speed, which means a lower dielectric constant (Dk) is required.
For example, traditional FR4 is a common PCB material that has been around for more than 50 years, but it does not have the best coefficient thermal expansion (CTE) and electrical characteristics for high-quality signal speed, which is why it’s not used in LIDAR applications.
If you have questions about which types of materials are best for your project, our experts can help.
Cirexx’s Experience With Autonomous Application PCB Projects
It’s important to consult experienced professionals from the start. Here at Cirexx, our highly skilled engineers work with clients from the beginning of any project to provide valuable recommendations on the type of PCB you need, materials, stack ups, and how to design for manufacturability.
Not only do we have extensive experience fabricating PCBs for all types of sensors and LIDAR technology, we also understand how to work with differing dielectric materials.
Cirexx has the industry-leading procedures, facilities, and team to fulfill all of your custom PCB manufacturing needs. Contact us today so we can answer any questions you may have — or request a quote if you’re ready to get started.
