Prototype PCB Assembly
The benefits of SI's turn-key PCB assembly service can be utilized for clients who require a convenient, quick turnaround for the prototyping of printed circuit board designs. SI Electronics is a global specialist in cost-effective prototype PCB assembly services. We have an in-house staff of seasoned experts who can take a client’s PCB designs from the parts sourcing, prototyping and assembly stages through a prototyped final product that can be shipped in typically two weeks if all the supporting documents are correct and there are no supply chain obstacles.
Our prototype PCB service is built upon the same processes of our hallmark turn-key PCB assembly service. We use the same in-house expertise and resources to prototype a PCB in limited amounts up to 25 printed circuit boards. Our prototyping team consists of solder techs, SMT-process engineers and parts sourcing associates.
Prototype PCB Assembly is Easy
Our prototype assembly service has a dedicated supply team that sources your parts from quality distributors. They are also capable of procuring obsolete or hard-to-find components. The time-saving benefits of our supply team alone can provide you with convenience and enhanced productivity realizations. At the client's request, our supply team will optimize the type of packaging (e.g., bulk, tubing, or tape, etc.) to decrease the total cost for orders with a limited bill of materials. When required, we can prototype a client’s PCBs using a parts kit. In addition, we are able to cross-reference parts or components when your specific types are unavailable. All component substitutions are approved by the client prior to their ordering or use in the assembly process. The client always maintains control of the final product in our prototype circuit board assembly service.
Our PCB prototype assembly processes enable clients to obtain even complex designs with SI's highly reliable Design for Manufacturing (DFM) and Design for Testing (DFT) services that guarantee a prototype built per your specifications in a quality-controlled manner. We have developed assembly facilities specifically set up for prototype assembly orders. These special facilities are flexible and permit the use of manual and/or automated component loading stations. Our facilities are capable of processing fine-pitch parts as well as ball grid arrays for high-density, FR-4 circuit boards.
Affordable Prototype PCB Assembly
As the costs of PCB production are always important to our customers, SI Electronics has its own quote system which can quickly let customers determine their PCB and assembly costs for the prototyping and assembly of printed circuit boards in 24hours. Our component list price includes both the cost of the component from your specified vendor and our list of preferred parts distributors (e.g., Digi-Key, Mouser, Avnet, Arrow, Future, and Newark Electronics). SI doesn’t charge a handling fee. The complete cost of our turn-key PCB prototype assembly service includes PCB, component and labor costs.
After a client’s engineering documents are reviewed by SI Electronics' staff, and all parts sourcing issues resolved, prototype PCB fabrication commences after all components are procured. On-time delivery is a value we share with all of our customers. We make a concerted effort to communicate any engineering, parts or process issues with our customers. However, the assembly process usually takes about two weeks.
To obtain a quote, please send your bill of materials (BOM), Gerber files and prototype PCB quantity to email@example.com. We will process the quote within two business days.
