December 12 2019

Look at the big picture when considering an ECM to partner with for your PCB manufacturing. Keeping in mind what's most important will lead you to the right ECM for your project.

Not all contractors are created equal when it comes to PCB manufacturing. Many electronic contract manufacturers will make big promises of quick turnaround and cost savings. But sometimes making good on these promises causes assembly and fabrication services to suffer. That could lead to more unnecessary costs, missed deadlines, and major frustration. You want to work with someone who will get it right the first time. Look at the big picture when considering an ECM to partner with for your PCB manufacturing. Keeping in mind what's most important will lead you to the right ECM for your project.

Turnkey SolutionsLegacy Electronic Products

If time truly is of the essence for your PCB project, finding an ECM that offers turnkey solutions may be the best way to go. You can save time with turnkey because your ECM will not just assemble your PCBs, they will go an extra step to procure and manage your components. It is a one-stop-shop that will do everything and provide you with fully built, ready-to-go PCBs.

Best Quality Parts

Using the best quality parts possible in your PCBs will guarantee a reliable and long-lasting product. This can only be guaranteed by working with an ECM that stands behind the parts and components it sources. Your electronic contract manufacturing partner should have a preexisting, thoroughly vetted list of suppliers it turns to for your build. Having trusted component sources reduces the risk of counterfeit and/or poor-quality parts being used in your PCBs.

High Standards

You want a guarantee your PCB boards will live up to the expected quality. This means you want to work with an ECM who has standards as high as yours. Be sure to ask the company about their quality control. If they are competent, they will take you through their manufacturing process and show you all they do to ensure superior quality PCB manufacturing. Also ask for proof of the company's quality certifications. ISO, AS9100 and ITAR compliance indicates you are working with a manufacturer that will protect the integrity of your company and quality of your product.
