Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – How to order the most cost effective PCB

Eurocircuits launch 5 working day PCB Assembly prototype service in the UK

Since end 2016 we have been informing you about our PCBA Visualizer tool. The final extension of these tools is of course the efficient and smooth production of assembled prototypes. To test this flow we have just now launched it in the UK market which will be our pilot market.

Meanwhile we are building our EMS partner network. Since the WoTS exhibition in 2016 we have been talking to many of our EMS customers regarding our plans to set up a smooth and reliable flow for PCBA manufacturing using our online Visualizer tools and platform to handle all BOM and data issues before the effective production starts.

To be transparent about what our customer can expect from us, we have put all actions on a time line and explained them all in this BLOG. In case you are interested as a designer customer or as an EMS customer in this PCBA concept, then take a look here.

PCBA services using Eurocircuits online Visualizer tools and the manufacturing services of our EMS partner network to fulfil as many PCBA prototype and small series orders as possible “right first time”, on time and on budget is our goal.

Should you have any questions about any of our services, please feel free to contact our sales office via email, telephone or instantly with our online chat during office hours. We will be more than happy to help.

Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – How to order the most cost effective PCB

Eurocircuits launch 5 working day PCB Assembly prototype service at the Electronics Design show, Coventry, 18th & 19th October stand L46

Since launching the Eurocircuits’ PCB prototype services and PCB Visualizer tool customers immediately saw the benefit to their prototype and small series PCB requirements, providing a 24hr ordering possibility, fast and high quality, immediate offer and instant design diagnostic and correction. This has reduced dramatically the Concept → Market time scale and ensured producibility and excellent quality.

It was not long after launching our online services that we were constantly asked “do you also offer an assembly population service for my PCB prototype?”

Since the beginning of the year 2017 we have encouraged you all to utilise and put through its paces our PCBA Visualizer, this is our revolutionary Visualization and correction tool for Assembly data, an early detection tool for PCB Assembly problems. Now we are proud to announce that after a 2 ½ year project we can now offer a one stop shop for your PCBA prototype and small series needs (bare board and assembly).

How does it work?

Our Assembly service is a 5 working day service. Purchase and logistics of the components are handled during the lead time of the PCB production. Once the boards are ready and components are delivered the lead time for the population starts.

First you upload your PCB dataset as before. In PCB Visualizer you select the options “Include assembly”.

PCBA PICT1

You will need to add the BOM and CPL data so that an online price can be calculated.

What can our PCBA service do for you?

  • Ensure you have complete and correct data 24/7 with the online Assembly Visualizer
  • Validate the component BOM against our database, allocate components or alternatives quickly and easily
  • Verify Component footprints against the PCB layout immediately identifying incorrect landing definitions and component selection
  • Validate each component by component type for landing definition and Polarity
  • View an immediate Price summary for the PCB, assembly and components
  • Take the stress out of component sourcing and pricing – leave it to our experts
  • A single point of purchase, a single PO for a complete service

With our Assembly Visualizer we offer a complete DFM check, component sourcing and manufacturing service giving you peace of mind that your prototype or small series can be confidently manufactured to meet your deadline.
We would like to invite you to try our PCB visualizer on your data and see how you could benefit.
Why not take a few minutes to watch our Assembly Visualizer video?

The further details of the flow are explained on our website giving you a clear overview of the steps to follow and the assembly capabilities you might expect.

Why not come and meet the team at the Electronics Design show, Coventry, 18th & 19th October stand L46?

Should you have any questions about any of our services, please feel free to contact our sales office via email, telephone or instantly with our online chat during office hours. We will be more than happy to help.

Eurocircuits – Tips & Tricks – Order status and timeline.

One of the many compelling reason to use Eurocircuits is that we only sell what we make. We made the decision over 20 years ago, that for us to provide the highest quality service, then we must have complete control over the entire process.

This of course has many benefits allowing us to react very quickly to our customer needs, often changing deadlines not foreseen at the time of placing the order, exact status of the order or simply tracking your order once shipped.

However another benefit is complete transparency for you to be able to view the exact status of your order 24/7. Not only this, once your order has been shipped you can find a link directly to your tracking number, all of this from the comfort of your Eurocircuits account page.

order status

Your order status can provide a lot of valuable information at you fingertips, to find out how else you can benefit we have a
short explanation here.

Should you have any questions about any of our services, please feel free to get in touch via email, telephone or instantly with our online chat during office hours. We will be more than happy to help.

Customer papers

Recently our customers have shared these white papers and application papers with us:

How to Prevent Emission Problems on Board Level – NEW
Posted on behalf of CNRood, active in the BeNeLux & Sweden. For many, the result of an EMC test comes as an unpleasant surprise. Large amounts of money and time are spent in re-designing the product, which causes heavy delays. The main cause of these additional costs and delays can be related to the designer’s opportunities, knowledge and desire to perform an EMC test on the product as early as possible. In this article, the author will give some simple advice and examples of test methods useful for avoiding undesired emission.
Suitability of an enhanced low melting point alloy for a handheld device – NEW
Posted on behalf of Interflux Electronics NV. Current lead-free soldering temperatures can damage temperature sensitive components. Moreover they can cause a shift in the properties of some components which can impact the functionality of sensitive electronic devices. An easy way to solve this problem is to use a soldering alloy with a lower melting point that allows for lower soldering temperatures. Currently however these alloys have limitations in shock and vibration resistance.
Intelligent Power Switch for Raspberry Pi – NEW
Posted on behalf of Peter Boxler. A Raspberry Pi does not have an On/Off switch and there is no easy way to shutdown the Pi while keeping the file system intact. This Intelligent Power Switch brings a clever solution to this problem: Power-On the Pi by pressing a pushbutton and also properly Power-Off the Pi with another press on the same button.
Low-cost calibrator delivers -5V to +10V DS with 70-µV error – NEW
Posted on behalf of Jordan Dimitrov. Calibration, the stage of truth in the design of every test and measurement device, is done with calibrators, sophisticated highly accurate multifunctional instruments, which cost thousands of dollars. In many cases however you do not need to go to the edge of technology.

If you are an active Eurocircuits’ customer and you feel like you have some interesting story to share with our Eurocircuits community, then please send it to us by e-mail. We will evaluate the content and if it fits the scope of what we publish then we will take it on board and inform you of it.
