Via options: Tenting, capping, plugging, or filling

Posted on Friday, August 24th, 2012 in how-to, PCBs by DP

From comments on our earlier Poision via effect in manufacturing post, Bearmos shared an article about via options in PCB manfacturing:

On the PCB side of things, here’s an article from a PCB fab that goes over a couple of the via options: via tenting, caps, and plugs (PDF!). This just landed in my inbox this morning – what interesting timing. . .

Thanks Bearmos! Via the comments.

  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
