These are the features you might want to look at incorporating into your Castellation PCB to ensure that it will be of its highest-quality possible.
For more details about the design layout; just send us a message.
The manufacturing process of a Castellation PCB requires careful handling since it can be very sensitive. These are the following phases we perform:
- It goes through from PCB Drilling on the edge of its substrate plate.
- Next, plating through the hole is performed.
- Panel plating, milling castellation holes, and removing anti-plate films.
- It now undergoes PCB Etching to remove the unwanted copper.
- Next, peel tin from the substrate and remove it from the holes.
- Finally, we expose the copper of the Castellation holes.
Each of these phases in the production procedure has its own guidelines for performing; we only deploy the most experienced staff to conduct these.
You can ping us if you want a more in-depth understanding of this.

Castellation PCB: The Ultimate FAQ Guide
If you are considering purchasing a new PCB, you may be wondering if the Castellation PCB has a solder resist layer. If you are still unsure, read our FAQ about Castellation PCBs. It will address many of your most common questions about the process, from choosing a board to ordering components. Read on to learn how these features work and how they can help you improve your design.
What is a Castellation PCB? It’s also called edge plating PCB. The vias are placed on the outer edges of the Castellation PCB. These holes are semicircles that help with board assembly. When soldering, these holes allow you to align the boards and ensure they are positioned correctly. Here are some frequently asked questions about Castellation PCBs, including how they differ from other types of boards.
What exactly is a Castellation? This method connects two PCBs directly and is ideal for small modules and breakout boards. It also supports wireless PCB-to-PCB connections. Soldering modules with perforations can be difficult, so make sure you understand how to properly connect the two boards. Castellation PCBs should have as many holes as possible to fit the space you are using.
How do I make Castellation holes in the PCB? Unlike traditional holes, these specialized holes are drilled from the edge of the substrate and allow you to place SMD components. Although it is difficult to create such holes during standard PCB manufacturing, they are an important part of many electronic devices. This article will describe how to create and use Castellation PCBs.
