Circuitry and plated holes can become damaged during processing and rework. One method for repairing damaged circuitry uses the Foil Jumper Method. This method uses pure copper Circuit tracks. The replaced conductors are the same size as the original. This IPC-recommended technique is preferable to making circuitry repairs with jumper wires because it more closely duplicates the original fabrication process.
Damaged plated through holes are repaired using eyelets. We have also refined an IPC recommended method for repairing damaged plated holes on multilayer circuit boards that have inner layer connections.
Circuitry and Plated Hole Rework
Occasionally errors in the circuit board fabrication process occur, or design changes are needed to upgrade circuit boards. Whatever the reason, we can help you overcome the modification requirement. Common applications include adding gold edge contacts, rerouting signal connection, isolating vias and pads, or adding an entire component footprint.
