It is also called “castellated holes”. These are plated holes cut 
through on the board edge and used to join two PCBs either by direct 
soldering or via a connector.  During the production, it is necessary to 
pre-process the semi-hole position before etching circuit to make sure 
the semi-hole position is smooth and no burr.

Process capability:

The hole diameter on the edge is minimum 0.6MM, and the half hole should 
be drilled inside the boards ≥0.3MM


The spacing between castellated holes should be greater than 0.55MM, or 
it will easily cause short circuit.
