The Printed Circuit Board (PCB)

We designed the circuit board not only to interconnect electrical components, but also to create shielding plans, heat dissipation surfaces for some power components, creating anchor points of mechanical components. A good PCB allows for high current distribution in a very technically precise pattern.

The arrangement of one or more return points of current, for example one for the power supply circuit, one for analogue signals, and another point for digital circuits, can significantly reduce the interference between the various sections.
A stretch of electrical earthing track, shared between the power circuit and the input circuit, can induce unwanted signals in the latter that can alter the integrity of small signals (audio).

A wise distribution of ground planes lead to, in terms of audio, less noise, less interference between channels, better detail and the manual phase of the assembly will be reduced to the essentials.
From this, we can easily understand how the PCB represents an essential element for the success of this project. The designer carefully considers the PCB component as essential for the success of a piece of electronic equipment, regardless of its use: audio, analogue instrumentation or digital.

The LYM1.0T was designed according to the concepts set out above; looking at the inside you can see how the careful arrangement of the components on the PCB has allowed for an assembly that is free of stray wires, and last but not least, has allowed for a cost reduction for both the components and the assembly.
