Design-for-Manufacturing (DFM) should be considered in low volume board assembly. We will review your documentation for any possible Engineering concerns in your Gerber files, BOMs, assembly drawings and circuit diagrams. As a turn-key solution provider, we will handle panelizing your PCBs to lower costs and facilitate the assembly process. We will recommend a solder mask opening to get a high yield rate while preventing solder bridging. We will also thoroughly check your parts list against your PCB files and seek clarification from you before we order parts. This avoids wasting your money and delaying delivery of your boards.
Similarly, Design-for-Testing (DFT) should be involved in your circuit designing job, even for low volume board assembly. Various probe models, fixture styles and tester limitation notes are available to support you. You will have our professional guidelines on how to distribute the test points across the PCB after reviewing your test procedure. We can fulfill your test requirements by following your troubleshooting guidelines, diagnostic tests, and associated documentation to get your boards fully tested.
We provide many additional services and programs to ensure that your low volume assembly job is entirely risk free. As a part of our turn-key services, we guarantee 100% electrical testing for all printed circuit boards. We also offer a unique PCB sample program for our turnkey clients; we will send a small number of your assembled PCBs to you for testing ahead of the main production run. X-Ray inspection is available to check BGA and other leadless package assembly quality. Our highly-trained specialists are able to resolve any assembly issues that may arise before your order is shipped out.
We take reducing costs seriously for low volume orders. NRE and stencil charges will be waived for repeat orders. We reduce your per-part cost by shopping each part number with the major distributors and choosing quantities to get the lowest per-part price. We have built strong relationships with major suppliers in the USA and other countries to keep part purchasing cost competitive without sacrificing quality. We guarantee that you will get the best combination of PCB turn-key service quality, price and delivery.
