Which is Better for Vias — Mechanical Drilling or Laser?

Printed circuit boards or PCBs need holes at various places. These may pass through the board or partially through the laminate materials. Through-hole-components or THCs need holes passing through the board for mounting, while surface mount components or SMCs do not need holes for mounting. There is another type of hole, popularly known as a […]
