Everything You Need to Know About Turnkey PCB Assembly

Printed circuit boards or PCBs have become very important of electronic equipment. From powering cell phones to laptops and other electronics, PCBs—those green chips found in most electronics—have quickly become a part of everyday life. PCBs are the nucleus of most modern world electronics and their use continues to grow.

Traditional PCB assembly is costly, mistake prone and can be a little intimidating. It is designed for huge projects with plenty of lead times. On the flipside, turnkey PCB assembly has revolutionized PCB assembly and is making everything easier.

Turnkey PCB assembly uses cloud-based software and onshore PCB manufacturing to make the assembly of printed circuit boards a whole lot easier. Rather than having to go through the old, labor-intensive way of assembly, turnkey PCB assembly boils down to this: upload a design, get a quote and the manufacturer builds wha

PCB Assembly Services for Prototypes and Other Products

Prototype assembly

It’s interesting to note that in 1995, the printed circuit board (PCB) industry became a $7.1 billion industry. In 2000, this increased to $10 billion, and by 2012, the PCB industry was worth $60 billion on a worldwide basis. More recently, in 2014, the combined revenue for circuit board and electronic component manufacturing was about $44 billion in the United States alone.

Technological Advancements Within the PCB Manufacturing Industry

Technological advancements have played a significant role in the success of this industry. Since machine assembly is available for any size of orders, PCBs can be assembled by machine shops in considerably less time than by hand. Some PCB assemblers, for example, can provide circuit board assembly services in 5 days or less. This is 75% quicker than the ove

To say that printed circuit boards (PCB) are essential to out everyday life would be an understatement. In fact, a low volume PCB is probably responsible for providing the energy needed for five to 10 tasks you complete every morning before you ever leave the house. From a cell phone alarm that wakes you in the morning to the circuitry in the door opener that lets you out of the garage, low volume PCBs help fuel the gadgets and gizmos that we use on a daily basis.
PCB fabrication and assembly processes are taught in classrooms and labs across the country as a way to introduce students and scientists alike the basics of low volume PCB assembly, as well as specialty boards like small batch PCBs and
