Turn-key PCB assembly services in prototype quantities or low-volume to mid-volume production runs

Assembling PCBs with Automated Surface-Mount Technology

Manufacturing printed circuit boards can be time-consuming unless you are a turn-key manufacturer. There is a way to speed up the process by using automated surface-mount technology (SMT). This type of technology automates the process of applying components and using through-hole technology to create PCBs. Continue reading

The Advantages of Flex PCBs And Their Applications

PCBs are an inherent component of electronic devices. They provide mechanical support and electrical connectivity for the electronic appliances. Initially, customers preferred simple, and rigid PCBs as they were easy to make, less expensive, and used for specific purposes. However, with the ever-increasing consumers’ demand and need for smaller, and sophisticated appliances, the developers faced a new challenge of integrating complex circuits into a final application. It demanded small, yet efficient, durable, yet lighter in weight PCBs that can fit into modern electronic appliances having smaller size and dimensions. Moreover, the need for PCBs that can withstand high temperature, pressure, and tough commercial and industrial conditions provided the electronics developers a stimulus to manufacture different kinds of PCBs to fulfill rising needs and expectations of the people. This led to the introduction of flexible PCBs into the world of electronics. Since then, their demand has only increased and worldwide share of flexible PCBs is expected, backed by anecdotal evidence and data, to reach a staggering $27 billion by 2022. At present, its demand is burgeoning at an annual rate of… Continue reading

How Does Turnkey PCB Assembly Decrease Turnaround Time

Manufacturing is a time-sensitive process. Technology changes rapidly, so when you need PCB assembly, turnkey is often the best choice. Why? Because turnkey PCB assembly decreases turnaround time, so you can release your product as quickly as possible. Turnkey PCB assembly works so quickly because it does not use the traditional methods of PCB assembly. Those traditional methods involve several people and organizations. When you take those hands off of the project, it can get done at a faster clip. Continue reading

Most common mistakes in PCB design and how to avoid them

PCB design is one of the essential steps in the making correctly functioning electronic device. When drawing a circuit layout, you are making sure that proper components are selected, passives calculated and tested with circuit simulator or test setups. On the PCB, those components are physically placed, but interconnecting between them relies on design. The more complex circuit gets, the more possible mistakes can occur. Let’s go through several crucial design mistakes and discuss how to avoid them. Continue reading

The key benefits of choosing PCB assembly services from NextPCB

PCB manufacturing has changed over the years. The customer side usually performed most of designing, prototyping, assembling, and testing. Controlling the production and quality of all steps require significant expertise and resources only larger companies can allow. Large electronics manufacturing companies have different access to technologies and been using for a while. What about smaller ones and even hobbyists? The successful cases were backed by enthusiasts who were great at designing circuits, tracing PCBs and testing. No matter how good you are, you cannot do all work fast and well enough play on the market. Continue reading
