What is the different between the production of medical PCB board and ordinary PCB board?

I want to outsource a batch of PCB for my medical devices. According to my experience, there is lots of regulation for medical device field. Do they also work on the medical PCB?
  • Safe and Reliable

These are the core issues of PCB boards in the medical industry. Life-supporting products or high-end products refer to IPC-3 level standards, while non-life supporting products or low-end products refer to IPC-2. This strictly controls the reliability of their products.

  • Long Service Life

Generally, the product warranty period is more than 5 years. Large medical equipment requires at least 10 years.

  • Large Scare of Products Level & Span
consumer medical PCB meet conventional requirements
mid-to-high-end medical PCB meet high reliability and stability requirements
small portable PCB meet high density and integration
Intelligent medical PCB Meet IoT requirements
  • Strict in Quality Control

ISO13485 is specifically set for managing the quality of medical products, including medical PCB.

What Others Are Asking

What are the black spots in lead-free solder joints on PCB?

I am prototyping a PCB, using Chip Quik’s “SMDSWLF.031, a Sn96.5/ Ag3.0/ Cu0.5 solder with 2.2% no-clean flux. I find that the black spots appears frequently in larger pads on my board. I wonder if it is because I left the soldering iron more time heating the solder and that burnt the flux. What is that black residue? Is that a sign of a bad joint or maybe bad soldering technique?

Do you use SMT or THT for USB mini B connector?

This question is about the advisability of continuing to use a USB mini-B right angle surface mount connector in my pcb designs. On occasion we see one of these connectors peel back or delaminate off the pcb. Immediately the question is asked, why didn’t you use a through hole connector?

How do you reduce the PCB assembly cost?

We are a automotive equipment company and also do PCBA by ourselves. But the production cost is moderately high based on the finance audit report. How can we do to save the cost?
