Finding The Best PCB Design Services Partner

In-house engineering is paramount for PCB design services. They need to have an eye on your design but are also looking at it from a production standpoint. Is it manufacturable? Can they make small adjustments to the design, but not function, to assist with manufacturability? Look for a design services partner that also has assembly and manufacturing on-site. Here are some things to look for:

5 Warning Signs Design Engineers Should Look For in an ECM Partnership

The right electronic contract manufacturer with the right team and the right tools will successfully serve all of your needs from prototype to production. After all, electronic contract manufacturing plays an important role in industries around the world. However, the relationship with your ECM can be a lot like any other relationship. When it’s good, it’s good, but when it is bad it is really BAD. Here are some warning signs that will make you pull off those ECM rose-colored glasses.

What Should a Mechanical Engineering Firm Look for in an Electronics Manufacturing Partner?

As a mechanical engineer, you create some pretty cool stuff. But does any of that stuff have electronic components? Have you just been winging it? Don't play DIY with your electronics manufacturing. You may have been lucky up to this point, but it could burn you if your electronics project goes boom.

PCB Development: The 5 Step Process

Printed circuit boards have come a long way. PCB evolution has led to so much innovation that you can find boards in everything from the simplest electronics in children's toys to sleek, cutting edge smart phones. But the PCBs for these projects don't magically appear. There is an entire PCB development process that occurs before you can even start manufacturing the final product, and there could be lots of lag time in between.

5 Reasons Why Your Engineering Firm Needs Electronic Manufacturing

It is hard to trust just anyone with a project you and your team have spent countless hours designing and developing. But outsourcing your electronic manufacturing could be a major advantage for your engineering firm. Here is one way to look at it. You wouldn't trust a dentist to diagnose you with a heart valve problem, right? A dentist and a cardiologist are both doctors. But they focus on different specialties. Electronic manufacturing should work the same way. Partnering with a great ECM allows you to focus on developing products. Let the ECM focus on production. And manufacturing is not just about keeping the line moving. There are a lot of reasons your engineering firm needs electronic manufacturing.

Optimize Your PCB Electronics With A Prototype

Prototyping is an important stage of PCB electronics design. Why leave it to chance? Your staff already has enough to do. They do not need to take on duties typically handled by an electronic engineer. Your product deserves better, too. Don't just dabble in prototyping. Retain the services on an ECM who has an engineering staff to support you and your product.

Keeping Production with the ECM Who Does Your Electronics Prototyping

The world of electronics, prototyping and manufacturing can be a complicated place. Some companies choose to have one ECM do a prototype and another do the production run. While some believe this is a smart move, there are many benefits associated with hiring a company that does everything under one roof. It is possible to save significant money and time by starting with an ECM who does prototypes in house and can also handle your production run. After all, you already trust their prototyping skills; why not also trust their assembly?

An Electronic Prototype Will Optimize Your Design

Prototyping is an important stage of product development. This useable representation of your design allows you to understand your product. The working model allows you to test various design features, verify design functionality and identify issues as early as possible within the development stage. Prototyping is often well worth the time, effort, and investment. If done well, the prototyping process will allow the design to be completely optimized before full production occurs. This will not only save you time and money, but guarantee you will deliver a dynamite product.

Reverse Engineering is Important To Your Legacy Electronic Assembly

Your legacy product has served you well. But is it time for an update? Bringing your legacy assembly up to speed with current and future technology doesn't mean going back to the drawing board. When the designs are no longer available, reverse engineering might be the solution you’re looking for. With reverse engineering you can have your ECM figure out exactly how your legacy components work and start looking for ways to update that technology for the future.

Using Reverse Engineering in Electronic Assembly To Bring A Better Product To Market

As tech companies grow, so has the popularity of reverse engineering. Reverse engineering is the process of disassembling a product or component in order to study it to find out how and why it works. From exploring incomplete design data and understanding design flaws to sustaining competition, the advantages of reverse engineering are widespread.

Product Problems? Why Reverse Engineering is the Solution

You’ve got a product that just isn’t functioning quite right. Maybe it’s in production, but you’re not convinced it’s going to perform how you originally intended. Or, maybe it’s still in prototype and technically it’s meeting your needs, but already you can imagine some of the future issues that are going to crop up.
