    Cavity PCB: The Ultimate FAQ Guide

    PCBs employ a variety of technologies to improve their performance. Cavity PCBs, or cavities on PCBs, are one of the strategies used to ensure that the size of PCBs is accurate.

    PCBs with cavities will make component placement and assembly easier.

    You may, however, have a few queries about cavity PCBs. If that’s the case, don’t be concerned. You’ve arrived at the right place.

    In the next sections of this post, we’ll address a few fundamental queries. Your questions concerning PCB cavities will be answered if you read the complete post.

    What Is Cavity PCB?

    PCBs are circuit boards that provide the surface for electrical components and allow for the creation of specific electrical functions. PCBs may be found in almost every electronic device.

    The majority of the time, PCBs are constructed from many layers. Consequently, you must connect the layers together in order for the layers’ functionality to be guaranteed.

    Cavities on a printed circuit board, on the other hand, are cuts or holes that are drilled to allow many layers to be connected together.

    Cavity PCB

    Cavity PCB

    Cavities are mostly created by drilling through the outer copper layer of the cavity PCBs. Then they go into the inner layers of the cavity PCBs. However, the holes do not penetrate all of the layers of the printed circuit board.

    Cavities are mostly utilized to minimize the overall height of the components they surround. To put it another way, the goal is to improve the clearance between the components on the board.

    Because the present period is focused on component and device downsizing, cavities are among the most essential aspects of PCBs.

    How To Make Cavity In PCB?

    Unlike other procedures, making cavity PCBs is a little complicated. To create cavities, you must utilize low-profile pp+ and a controlled depth milling technique, as well as interior filling gel materials.

    You may face the following complications during the procedures.

    Deviation

    The first step is to slot the core board and Prepreg together. Press them once they’ve been slotted. During this time, the board’s lamination offset and cavity deformation may be seen.

    Gum Flow Issues

    You will see the standard slotting size is 0.5 mm larger than the cavity. The cavity bottom may be overflown with gum.

    This problem might increase due to the slotting size of 1 mm. In this case, the cavity area with core boards faces dielectric loss issues.

    You Have To Recover Some Issues To Create Cavity In PCBs

    You Have To Recover Some Issues To Create Cavity In PCBs

    Damage Of Materials

    The cavity boards get thinner as the process of downsizing progresses, and the cavities become shallower as the process progresses. In this situation, the cavity region may be more prone to depression than in the other.

    You may manage the issues in making cavities in cavity PCB step by step. 

    Deviation Issue Resolving

    The deviation issue might be solved by using laser cutting on your board copper area. The cavity wall that the deviation creates is a solution against the deviation itself.

    Gum Flow Solution

    You need to resolve the gum flow issues by laser removal. Because the high-frequency materials hold particular flow gum that the window opening cannot resolve.

    Material Damage Issue Solution

    You should use a low-energy drilling technique on the copper surface of the cavity PCB. This will not harm the cavity PCB board’s materials.

    What Are The Materials Used In Cavity PCB?

    The FR4 is one of the most common cavity PCB materials. Usually, cavity PCBs use high-frequency materials. Following are some common high-frequency cavity PCB materials that are used.

    FR4

    It is the most used and popular PCB material. FR refers to flame retardant, which meets the particular requirements by NEMA LI 1-1998.

    FR4 Material

    FR4 Material

    FR4 PCB substrate companies with excellent mechanical, thermal, and electrical performance. The high-grade FR4 is used for lower multiple-layer counts.

    Fr4 is the cheapest PCB material existing.

    Polyimide Laminate

    Polyimide is higher in complying with high temperatures. Polyimide is a thin and more flexible material that is used in high-grade flexible cavity PCBs.

    Polyimide is primarily stronger, mechanically, and electrically more stable than FR4. Polyimide shows more stability in material expansion. It is also more expensive than FR4 material.

    Teflon

    Teflon is another high-grade material, stronger and reliable than the previous two. Teflon is developed with more thermal, electrical, and mechanical performance.

    Teflon may be used in glass fabrics, unsupported films, and or with particular fillers. Teflon holds more high-speed capabilities for high-frequency, and high-speed PCBs.

    It is expensive as well.

    Besides these materials, aluminum, BT, cyanate ester, blended materials, ceramics, etc., are used in malign cavity PCBs.

    Is It Possible To 3D View Cavity In PCBs?

    Yes, the cavity in a PCB may be seen in 3D using the Altium design program. However, you must first complete a series of stages.

    Create a section in the PCBLib for recognizing and seeing the cavity in 3D. The area must be defined in the cavity PCB’s mechanical layers.

    Cavity PCB 3D View

    Cavity PCB 3D View

    Ensure that the Kind property is set to “Cavity Definition.” Set the cavity’s needed height at the same time. This is useful if you want to expose the whole cavity.

    The settings are shown in the Properties Panel. The height you choose will determine how far the program will remove layers from the cavity PCB’s surface.

    To keep the callout layers of your cavity PCB’s board housing separated, you may add an additional mechanical layer. The approach enables you to add an additional 3D body to the cavity layer components.

    By configuring the cavity for the components, you are now ready to observe the 3D of the cavity. The Altium design program will guarantee that the layer is not cut off partly. This will simplify the interaction between the cavity and the layers.

    What Are The Advantages Of Cavity In PCBs?

    The cavities are generally utilized on PCBs to reduce the size of the board and electronics. Cavities allow the boards to be thinner and more compact. They also provide varying depths for the various layers of multilayer PCBs.

    Cavity PCBs Are Advantageous In Many Ways

    Cavity PCBs Are Advantageous In Many Ways

    Aside from that, there are a number of benefits to using cavities in cavity PCBs.

    • The superior surface quality of the boards will provide maximum thermal stability.
    • Ensure that CAD data and laser parameters are kept separate and distinct.
    • In a multilayer PCB with cavities, a single PCB will assure varied layer depths.
    • The board’s performance is ensured by the presence of cavities.
    • On the cavity PCB, cavities increase the heat dissipation area.

    What Are The Surface Finishes Of Cavity PCBs?

    Surface finishes are the metal coating of the PCB board that protects the exposed conductive area of the PCBs.

    Surface finishes are among the most essential aspects of boards manufacturing. There are different types of surface finishes.

    ENIG And ENEPIG

    Electroless Nickel Immersion Gold and Electroless Nickel Electroless Palladium Immersion Gold are two types of gold finishes with nickel and palladium.

    In the NEIG, nickel is used to protect the copper of the PCBs, and gold on the other hand protects the nickel from oxidation.

    ENIG Surface Finish

    ENIG Surface Finish

    Aside from this, palladium is another protective material that is comparatively cheap and more protective. Both are RoHS compliant.

    Immersion Tin And Immersion Silver

    Immersion tin is a thinner tin coating applied to the board’s copper. Immersion silver, on the other hand, is a thinner silver coating applied to the boards’ conductive copper.

    Immersion tin, on the other hand, gives some additional exterior planner finishes on the copper pads. This allows the pads to be used with SMT components.

    Organic Solderability Preservatives (OSP)

    OSP is one of the organic protective finishes to the copper of the boards. It provides transparent water-based lamination bonds to the copper.

    Hot Air Solder Leveling (HASL)

    HASL is the cheapest surface finish that uses lead-tin to cover the coppers.

    What Is Cavity Resonator In Cavity PCBs?

    A cavity resonator is an electronic device that consists of space that is enclosed by metallic wales. Cavity resonators are used in microwave systems. A different proneness is used to power up frequencies up to the peak of amplitudes.

    Cavity Resonator

    Cavity Resonator

    Electromagnetic, electric, dimension, mass, or acoustics determine the frequencies. For example, above the frequency of 3 MHz, wires and transistors cannot handle the frequencies. In this case, to amplify the frequencies and keep them constant, cavity resonators are used.

    There are 7 types of cavity resonators used in cavity PCBs.

    • Regulated,
    • Un-Regulated,
    • Inductive,
    • Reentrant,
    • Co-axial,
    • Capacitive, and
    • Waveguide cavity resonator.

    What Are The Uses Of Cavity Resonators?

    In most cases, waveguides or very fundamental dielectric materials are used to construct cavity resonators. On printed circuit boards, the cavity resonator is used to store magnetic and electrical energy.

    It is possible to identify several resonant frequencies in the cavity resonator that are associated with the electromagnetic border of the printed circuit board.

    If you want to accomplish resonance balancing, you must make sure that all of your design parameters are balanced against the length of your cavity. Consequently, the wavelength must be an integer multiple of the half wavelength of the resonance in order to be considered valid.

    Various kinds of cavity resonators are used in a variety of applications. A microwave cavity resonator is a device that is used to regulate microwave receivers, transmitters, and measurement equipment.

    An acoustics cavity resonator, on the other hand, makes sound by causing air vibrations to pass through a single hole. This is used in conjunction with the acoustic filtration system.

    What Is Waveguide Cavity In Cavity PCBs?

    The waveguide cavity is a mechanism for routing critical radio frequency communications through the cavity PCBs. Aside from providing natural isolation and mode selection, the waveguide cavity also provides mode selection. The waveguide cavity is responsible for ensuring that the materials have a low loss.

    When it comes to waveguide cavity geometry, almost any size and form is possible. However, as a competent cavity printed circuit board designer, you should adhere to the standard waveguide cavity construction technique.

    Waveguide PCB Structure

    Waveguide PCB Structure

    The standard technique distinguishes the manufacturing of waveguide cavities from the production of microstrips and strip lines. Because TEM wave propagation will only be seen at high frequencies, it is important to understand how they work.

    You will get several facilities for waveguide cavity creation such as model selection, bandwidth tuning, field distribution engineering, etc.

    What Are The Types Of Cavity PCBs?

    The main use of the cavities is in the PCB with more than one layer. In this regard, cavity PCBs are mainly two types: Double-sided PCB, and Multilayer PCB. High-frequency PCBs, high-speed PCBs, or PCBs with other functionalities can be made in double-sided mode and multilayer PCB modes.

    You will find the cavity PCBs in the following types:

    Double-Sided PCB

    Two conductive copper layers are used to make a double-sided PCB. holes are drilled to connect the layers with each layer.

    Double-Sided PCB

    Double-Sided PCB

    Multilayer PCB

    There are at least three conductive copper layers in the multilayer PCBs. The layer stacks up are arranged in sandwich fashion on a single board with multiple layers.

    Let’s check the following video on how multilayer stacks up work for multilayer PCBs:

    Rigid PCB

    Rigid PCBs are those that are constructed of rigid materials and cannot be bent or folded. Rigid printed circuit boards (PCBs) are mostly employed in static applications where stiffness is required.

    Flexible PCB

    Flexible materials are employed in the fabrication of flexible multilayer cavity printed circuit boards. They have the ability to be folded and bent.

    Rigid-Flex PCB

    Rigid-flex printed circuit boards are a hybrid of rigid and flexible PCBs.

    Is Laser Technology Applicable for Cavity PCBs?

    Yes, it is possible to employ laser technology for cavity PCBs.

    You may either utilize laser-ablated copper holes directly on the exposed dielectric or use them as a mask on the exposed dielectric. The hollow was created primarily by the use of copper etching in conjunction with other techniques. The aspect ratio that is necessary is bigger than 1:1.

    Cavity In PCB With Laser Cutting

    Cavity In PCB With Laser Cutting

    The hollow walls are created by the laser depending on the sorts of materials used and the depth of the boards.

    You will be able to make a clean surface plating for coating, wiring, plating, and soldering reflow if you use the right ratio of energy infrared rays.

    The following video demonstrates the drilling of PCBs with laser cutting:

     

    What Are The Cavity PCB Components Assemble Technologies?

    The most used components assembly technology is surface mount technology in cavity PCBs. Besides this, two different technologies are available too: Through-hole technology and Press-fit technology.

    Surface Mount Technology (SMT)

    In the SMT, the PCB components are directly placed onto the board. There are conductive copper pads on the board. A machine then picks the components and places them onto the conductive pads of the board.

    After placing the components, the PCB boards go through a reflow oven. The reflow oven first ensures the balancing temperature to the board and components. Then, the oven ensures the attachment of the solder paste onto the components and solder pads joining.

    Through-Hole Technology

    Through-hole is the oldest component assembling process of the printed circuit boards. First, you need to drill the PCB boards on the etched copper traces.

    Then you have to penetrate the components through the through-holes of the board, and solder them with soldering iron.

    Through-Hole Soldering

    Through-Hole Soldering

    Press-Fit technology

    Press-fit assembling technology is a solder-free assembling process of components on PCBs. You will just need to press the components on the PCB boards through the press-fit connector to attach.

    Press-fit pins are pressed through the plated holes on PCB boards.

    What Is Cavity PCB Edge Plating?

    PCB edge plating is the process of coating the printed circuit board’s edges with protective materials. Like surface finish, you can use different types of surface finish materials to plate the edges of the PCBs.

    Cavity PCB Edge Plating

    Cavity PCB Edge Plating

    Most of the time, the PCBs edges are comparatively unprotected. The edge plating protects your PCBs edges from oxidation. To plate the edges, you need proper knowledge and technical capabilities though it is another simple part of PCB manufacturing.

    There are various advantages of edge plating of your cavity PCBs. Theta er as follows.

    • The conductivity and performance of the material are improved.
    • Improve the current-carrying capacity of printed circuit boards.
    • Improve the support for the printed circuit boards that slide into the metal enclosures.
    • It serves to protect the margins from being damaged.

    What Are The Consequences Of High Heat In Cavity PCBs?

    High heat is the heat that exceeds the compliance limit of the cavity PCB materials. High heat on the PCBs can happen for many reasons such as high-frequency, wrong components placements, improper lamination, insufficient heating absorption system, etc.

    High Heat Can Damage The PCB's Physical Integrity

    High Heat Can Damage The PCBs Physical Integrity

    However, high heat can harm your cavity PCBs in many ways. You may face the following consequences while facing high heat on your PCBs.

    • The integrity of your cavity PCB might be lost due to the high heat. The layers you use in your multilayers PCBs are prone to fluctuations in the temperature. High heat may cause structural damage to the layers.
    • With high heat on your cavity PCBs, your boards’ circuit lines may be expanded. The circuit lines and the conductive traces might be changed due to overheating. For this, the signal integrity of your PCB will be lost.
    • With high heat, the different PCB materials will expand at different rates. Because all materials do not have the same coefficient of thermal expansion. In his case, the materials will not comply with each other. So, the physical malfunction will happen.
    • One of the sensitive issues that might happen for high heat is oxidation. For the oxidation of your PCBs, uneven heat dissipation, and protective coating elimination will happen. Also, oxidation will lead your conductive materials to destruction.

    What Is Electromagnetic Interference In Cavity PCBs?

    Electromagnetic interference, or EMI, is a result of electronics (PCBs or others) affecting the exposed conductive area of the PCBs. This occurs as a result of the electromagnetic field, which degrades the PCBs’ performance.

    EMI issues may arise in devices that hold electric circuits. The EMI problems are caused by sources, pathways, and receptors.

    The source is the point where electromagnetic problems arise. Electromagnetic issues arise as a result of the path to the point. The electromagnetic interference operation is generated by the receptor.

    The EMI source is primarily generated internally. EMI problems have far-reaching consequences. EMI will disrupt signals, whether they are man-made or natural. It is extremely expensive, and it can even be life-threatening.

    The EMI in medical equipment, such as the ventilation system, has the potential to cause death in critical patients. Other equipment, such as navigation systems and industrial systems, may also be affected by EMI.

    What To Consider To Design PCB Traces To Prevent Electromagnetic Interference In Cavity PCB?

    There is no doubt that the EMI issues are highly infectious to the cavity PCBs. You need to consider some major facts to prevent EMIs. PCB traces are one of the essential aspects to consider before designing.

    Design The Traces With Utmost Care

    Design The Traces With Utmost Care

    Let’s check how you can design the traces to prevent the EMI issues.

    • Make sure you avoid the angles of 45 to 90 degrees during drilling the holes. The capacitance increases when you place the components between 45 to 90 degrees. This phenomenon changes the impedance results in EMI.
    • Keep the digital traces separated from the analog traces.
    • Keep the return paths of the signal shorts. More distance occurs, signal loss results in inconsistent signals. Keep the return path the same as the signal transmit paths.
    • Vias are essential for multilayers PCBs. But too many vias and their improper placement cause the mixing of inductance and capacitance. Try to keep the visa number as low as possible.
