What is Border Data
Border data refers to the extra material added around a PCB to form a customer panel, which is not part of the PCB circuit design itself. The purpose of the panel border is to enhance the mechanical stability of the panel and provide non-functional material outside the PCB. This additional material can be utilized for clamping the panel during assembly processes. By incorporating a panel border, the PCB is better protected and secured, ensuring its structural integrity during the manufacturing and assembly stages. The panel border is typically implemented to reinforce the overall stability of the customer panel, allowing for efficient handling and assembly operations.
