We can precisely manufacture your boards as long as you provide us with PCB design files in Gerber RS-274X format (most preferred, 274D format is not accepted), files in *.PCB/DDB (Protel, please inform your Protel program version) or *.BRD (Eagle) formats.

Q: What is the expected lead time for a PCBA order?

A: Our standard lead time for PCB assembly orders is around 3-4 weeks, PCB manufacturing, component sourcing, and assembly will be finished within the lead time.

Q:Is there anything special about the packing?

A: Packaging drop test is for the sake of product packaging in the simulation of different edges, surface and under the condition of different height fell to the ground, to understand the product damage, and evaluation of product packaging components in drop are falling height and impact strength, resistance to products based on the actual situation and reform in the national standard, perfect packaging design.

The assembly process of PCBA board, shell and packaging is also very important. Improper assembly will also cause damage to the tested PCBA board. The assembly process of PCBA suppliers requires strict operation specifications and assembly according to standard procedures.

  1. Packaging materials

PCBA board is a fragile and easily damaged product. It must be carefully packed with bubble bags, pearl cotton, electrostatic bags and vacuum bags before transportation.

  1. Anti-static packaging

Static electricity will break down the chip in the PCBA board. Since static electricity cannot be seen or touched, it is easy to produce, so in the process of packaging and transportation, it is necessary to adopt anti-static packaging

3, moisture-proof packaging

Before packing, the surface of PCBA should be cleaned and dried, and sprayed with three-proof paint.

4, shockproof packaging

Place the packed PCBA board in an ESD packing box. When placing the PCBA board vertically, stack not more than two layers upwards. A stopper board must be placed in the middle to ensure stability and to prevent shaking
