Asambleja e PCB me vëllim të ulët: Mënyrat efektive për të ulur koston e asamblesë

Ndonjëherë asambleja e PCB me vëllim të ulët bëhet ora e nevojës. Ju keni aplikacione që kërkojnë PCB. Sidoqoftë, buxheti është i kufizuar. Me burime minimale, ju do të filloni të kërkoni për asamblenë më të lirë të komunikimit PCB ose zakonisht prodhimin e PCB.

Reducing the cost of Printed Circuit Boards is a tricky task especially at the designer’s end. It takes out all the fun. After all, modern technology often requires the latest components and sophisticated parts. Now, when you go on incorporating these features in your PCB, the prices will go sky-high.

The boards may turn out to be amazing, but with the skyrocketing prices, you are less likely to sell them. Thus, you need to come up with a board that offers the best of technology within a reasonable budget. Tricky, isn’t it?

So, in this article, we are going to talk about a number of ways in which you can cut PCB costs while assuring its quality.

Effective Tips for Cutting Assembly Cost

We often come across PCB assemblers that claim to have the lowest price. After all, they cut down prices to attract consumers and gain profits. However, some of these assemblers would simply compromise on the quality to reduce the overall cost.

Therefore, it is a good idea to find an assembler that can balance between price and quality.

Low Volume PCB Assembly

Find a professional and reliable PCB assembler

If you have been looking around, by now you know that every PCB assembler claims to provide high quality Printed Circuit Boards at low cost. However, not all deliver what they promise. So, you need to be vigilant in making a decision.

For starters, do your homework properly. You need to have a clear understanding of your project and its requirement. Once, you have a clear idea of what you need. Next is to hit your laptop. Do a thorough search on the internet for the respective assemblers.

You can even use trade shows, magazines or whatever means to find as much information as possible. We understand it requires a lot of time. However, we can assure you that it would be worth it in the future.

Below are some important aspects that you need to cover when searching for a Printed Circuit Board assembler.

Equipment

To ensure the quality and efficiency of the assembling process, it is important to have the latest equipment. Since SMT, Surface-Mount technology is closely associated with the high manufacturing speed and component placing, thus choose a company that uses SMT technology.

Certificates

To be sure of Printed Circuit Board assembler’s management regulations and manufacturing capabilities, you need to see their certificates. These certificates would vouch for what they are saying. Some of the important certifications including UL, RoHs, ISO9001 among others.

ISO9001 is a family of international quality management guidelines that aim to promote a firm’s ability to meet a consumer’s requirements and expectations by improving its product quality effectively and efficiently.

ROH, Restrictions of Hazardous Substance is a series of laws governing six hazardous substance application in the manufacturing of electrical and electronic products. The Listing Service UL ensures that the manufacturer tests their product thoroughly. This helps them ensure the right procedure and reduces product errors.

Prokurimi i Komponentit

You will be surprised to know that a lot of time and money is wasted in the manufacturing stage of Printed Circuit Boards. It is something that you would want to avoid as a low volume PCB assembly manufacturer. The reason being, the disjointed relationships between different phases of the process.

To save time and reduce cost, you should choose a Printed Circuit Board assembler that offers components sourcing service. This will help you focus on your project engineering and not worry about the assemblers.

The assembler would do what it is best at – choose excellent, yet inexpensive components and place them on top of a circuit board.

Optimize the Schematic Design

Before you start with real manufacturing, you need to perform a DFM check. This helps ensure that it is possible to normally implement your Printed Circuit Board. Several Printed Circuit boards assemblers offer these services for free. Thus, resulting in lower assembly costs.

Below are the important factors that influence the cost of the bare Printed Circuit Board.

Via Tech

Vias are imperative for building interconnection on aboard. There are different types of vias including buried, micro vias and blind vias. However, the number of vias greatly influences the overall cost. The greater number of vias you incorporate, the higher the price of PCB.

Thus, the proper and careful arrangement of vias is would reduce the cost of bare Printed Circuit Board. At the same time, it would ensure sufficient functioning of the PCB.

Përfundojë sipërfaqe

A surface finish helps with excellent electric performance and solderability as it prevents the pads from oxidizing. You can choose from a variety of finishes including ENEPIG, ENIG, OSP, HASL, etc. You need to choose the surface that fits your project requirement as every surface has its pros and cons.

Layer Count

When you add layers to a PCB, the cost is bound to go increase. As a low volume PCB assembly manufacturer, you need to make sure that you do not add unwanted layers. Additional layers will enhance PCB’s complexity, but at the same time, they would increase the price.

Size and Shape

You should consider the requirement before finalizing the size and the shape of the PCB. The board should correspond to the requirements of its respective application. It should have an accurate design that will implement all its functions within a moderate space.

Use Panels only when necessary. Although, due to improved technology and PCB density, small PCBs can be complex. Do remember, a small PCB does not mean that it is cheap. The shape of the PCB also affects the price. If you shape the usual shape – square or a rectangle- the price would be less. However, in the case of special shapes, you would have to pay more.

Effective and Complete BOM

BOM (Bill of Material) is a concise list of items, raw materials, sub-assemblies, assemblies, and components, etc. that you would need for the manufacturing of PCB. A complete BOM includes the following:

  • Manufacturer Name
  • Part Number
  • BOM level
  • Top point/footprint
  • Bottom point/footprint
  • SMT method
  • Package
  • Case
  • Description
  • Quantity
  • Designator
  • Reference

Never forget to add component replacement in the BOM. With a complete BOM, an effective and low volume PCB assembly manufacture can provide you a quote within 1 to 2 days.

Ndikimi i përbërësve

In case you are a company with limited sources, we understand that controlling your budget and product schedule can be troublesome. A good idea is to reach out to a PCB assembler. Bordi i qarkut të shtypur assembler is more likely to have a friendly relationship with their respective component distributor due to long-term cooperation’s.

They might be able to get components at prices that you would never get. They would get those components at wholesale price instead of the retail price. You can ask for the purchase invoice from distributors as this would ensure that the Printed Circuit Board company has genuine cooperation with the respective distributor.

Adjust Lead Time and Order Volume

The price of each commodity is inversely proportional to the order volume. This rule holds in every type of industry. So, the higher the number of pieces you order, the lesser the price of each piece would be. You need to consider your company’s situation and find the right order volume.

After that, you need to choose a PCB manufacturing company that will fulfill your order requirement to perfection. Your order volume can be low, medium or large.

Kur bëhet fjalë për kohën e duhur, duhet t'i kushtoni vëmendje të madhe llogaritjes. Shpesh problemi është brenda llogaritjeve të tij. Asnjëherë mos ngatërroni veten tuaj me kohën tërheqëse të premtimit që premton një montues PCB. Arsyeja është që prodhime të ndryshme PCB kanë metoda të ndryshme për llogaritjen e kohës së pritjes. Prandaj, është e rëndësishme të dini sa vijon

  1. Cila është dita e porosisë dhe dita e pagesës?
  2. Koha e fillimit?
  3. Në cilën ditë do të vinin përbërësit?

Me pak fjalë, nëse një kompani ka një kohë më të gjatë drejtimi, do t'ju japë një çmim më të ulët.
