What to Consider when Ordering Circuit Boards
What to Consider when Ordering Circuit Boards
May 18, 2017

There are various types of printed circuit board assembly techniques. These include:


  • Thru-Hole Device (THD)
  • Surface-Mount Technology (SMT)
  • SMT & THD mixed process
  • Double sided SMT
  • THD assembling techniques.


Before placing an order, you need to consider the requirements and specific considerations needed. Read on for a breakdown of this criteria.



When looking for the highest quantity of products assembled, you need to have the Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) requirements of the manufacturer. In instances where there are no MOQ requirements, you can place an order of whatever quantity you may need for your company. Typically, the MOQ details involve between 1 and 5000 units.


PCB details

Irrespective of the printed circuit board assembly technique used, all the PCB details should be well inspected and properly confirmed. The component package should be properly sorted, hence the need to have the right quantities matching your specifications. These are commonly packaged in reels, tapes, trays, tubes or loose parts which you might have to purchase from a reliable supplier.


PCB specifications

The size, shape, type and dimensions of the PCBA assembly adopted should be effectively stated in your initial specifications. This gives your design a unique and equally standardized unit of finished product matching your needs. The core specifications you need to have well articulated include the shape and dimensions of the board itself.  


Assembly process

There are two primary techniques used to assemble PCBA boards. These are the leaded and the lead-free processes. These determine the testing procedures adopted in inspecting and testing the units of the fabricated boards.
