Why is every phone getting rid of its headphone jack?

Headphone jack was very popular in last decades, but this trend seems fade recently. What is going on?
  • It’s physically large, mechanically unreliable and expensive.
  • It can combine with the recharging port.
  • It also needs to be on the edge of the board poking out.if the case, which limits your PCB design.
  • Now, Bluetooth chips are so cheap, low power and tiny that Bluetooth headphones can replace them in some degree.

To sum up, getting rid of an external mechanical component is a big win in electronics manufacturing.

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 allow your manufacturer to do some changes to your PCB design?

I receive an email from My PCBA suppliers. They advised us to adjust our original PCB design. Are there any PCB designer have this experience after releasing original design to your supplier? If yes, do you think that the manufacturer can make your design better?
