Selective Laser Mask Removal "Saves" Boards
Example laser etched trace filled over with solder mask
There are times when a test point gets missed, a Gerber connection is not made or a trace needs to be extended. You may end up with thousands of boards that under normal conditions would have to be scrapped. BEST laser technicians can design a "fix" by selectively ablating the solder mask off in certain areas of the board. In some cases, missing copper patterns can be "added back" where they were missing. More information on the laser ablation process can be found here.
