Where should I store PCB?

I have received the final prototypes from manufacturer and all is good after our checking. And we want to keep it well. Do you have any tips about that?

First, we should keep them from long-run touch with air and water.

Second, the vacuum packing of the PCB can’t be damaged. PCB vacuum packaging can prevent the welding pad from moisture oxidation and layering foaming.

Third, we need to store them in a dry and ventilated place. Attention please! Cover them from direct sunlight.

Fourth, the ideal temperature of the warehouse is 23 ± 3 ℃, 55 ± 10% RH.

  • Under such conditions, PCBs with floor remedies such as immersion gold, electro-gold, tin spray, and silver plating can usually be saved for 6 months.
  • Surface PCB boards such as Shen Tin and OSP can usually be saved for 3 months.

Fifth, it is good if the PCB manufacturer paints a three-proof layer on it, which can prevent moisture, dust, and oxidation.

  • In this way, PCB will keep well for about 9 months.

What Others Are Asking

I forgot a resistor on my PCB prototype – how do I add one in?

I need to add a resistor into a data line on my project. The data line is a trace and carries low speed data. A through-hole resistor will be fine. The pins for both ends of the trace are exposed, but how do I add the resistor and remove the trace?

How can I handle missing solder mask opening on PCB footprint?

I have three through-hole PCBs that are missing front and back solder mask openings for two of the components. The solder mask (usually green) is covering the front and back solder pads. All other pads for all other parts are exposed. Is there a good way to remove the solder mask so that I can solder the components to the board?
