Have you found a circuit board assembler for your business? Finding the right team to do the job can be tricky. Printed circuit board assemblies (PCBA’s) are essential to most electronic devices, so you want to make sure that the team you hire will provide the highest quality product. We can help you find the best circuit board assembler for your business.
Here are the factors you should consider:
The Association Connecting Electronics Industries (IPC) is a trade association whose aim is to standardize the assembly and production requirements of electronic equipment and assemblies. All circuit boards from a PCB assembler should comply with the IPC Standards. This indicates that the circuit board is built according to the required protocols for PCBA manufacturing.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) sets international standards to ensure that products and services are of good quality, safe and reliable. Meeting these international standards minimizing waste and errors. By working more efficiently, electronics that meet these standards will run at a reduce cost and higher productivity.
Circuit Board Testing
To ensure the quality and functionality of every circuit board, functional testing should be done. The list below gives a brief explanation for each type of functional testing:
• Smoke Testing: Ensuring that the most important functions work. The results of this test will decide if a PCBA is stable enough for further testing.
• Usability Testing: Tests a product’s ability to meet its intended function. In other words, “Can this product be used effectively by a client?”
• Regression Testing: Re-runs tests after a change has been made, to look at different operating variables.
Without a doubt, you should partner with a team that meets all these standards. Without meeting these standards, you risk receiving a defective product and suffering financial loss.
