The Root Causes & Solutions for Warped PC Boards

09/27/2017 | Duane Benson, Screaming Circuits
There are two primary types of causes of board warping: process related at the fab or assembly shop, and layout related issues. If it's warped before assembly, it's between fab and layout. If it's flat before assembly and warped after, it's most likely between layout and assembly.
