Sit back and relax, we'll do it all for you! This type of service is for a turn-key job where you provide the design files, we source the PCBs, the board level components (parts), the SMT stencil and then return assembled boards to you.
Please refer to PCB Assembly Process for additional information.

Full or Partial Turn-key vs Consignment PCB Assembly

Consignment means you provide the bare boards and all the parts. Please refer to our Consignment assembly services for more information.

Full Turn-key means we source all the material including PCBs, parts and SMT stencil. Partial Turn-key means you source some of the material (e.g. hard to find parts).

Sourcing the PCBs (Rigid, Flex, Rigid-Flex, Metal Core, etc.)

We save you time and money by sourcing your printed circuit boards from the "PCB factory that is best suited for your project". If your project is time sensitive and you only need a few quickturn prototype PCBs or if your boards need to be made in the USA we partner with PCB factories in California, Illinois and Oregon. If you need complex multilayer PCBs with features like filled conductive vias and/or blind and buried vias we can have your boards fabricated by one of our high tech PCB manufacturing partners in Taiwan. If your project is price sensitive or if you need a large volume of boards we can have your boards fabricated by one of PCB factories in China that we partner with.

Fabricating the SMT Stencils

Please let us know if you are planning to provide your own SMT stencil. Our automatic SMT stencil printer only accepts 29"x29" extruded framed stencils. We fabricate our SMT stencils in house using the latest laser technology from LPKF. We have years of experience designing and fabricating them. If a stencil we cut is not perfect for a particular job we just cut another one and we do not charge you for the new stencil (unless you provided your own SMT stencil).
