Add PCB Teardrops to Improve Bare-Board PCB Yield
How to Improve Your PCB Yield with Teardrops
What are PCB teardrops?
PCB Teardrops are small tear-shaped copper shapes that are added to the ends of pads and tracks. They are a unique design feature that improves the durability, stability, and even electrical performance of PCBs.
Jane Berrie shows you how to apply PCB teardrops to your PCB designs using eCADSTAR, and the benefits of using them.
