World of Electronics seminarie – betrouwbare elektronica ontwerpen en produceren!

WoTS biedt meer dan enkel een beurs. Er vinden ook elke dag interessante seminaries plaats. Eurocircuits maakt deel uit van de sprekers van het seminaries op donderdagmorgen 4 oktober, betrouwbare elektronica ontwerpen en produceren. Met onze presentatie: Eerst denken, dan doen, leidt tot “right first time” willen we aandacht vragen voor de problematiek rond het omzetten van CAD-designs naar correcte en maakbare CAM-productiedata.Een idee en een ontwerp omzetten in de praktijk kan niet zonder kennis te hebben van wat productietechnisch allemaal mogelijk is en vooral wat niet mogelijk is. Het is daarom van groot belang om productiebedrijven bij de ontwerpfase te betrekken nog voor de ontwikkelaar alles definitief omzet in een layout en productie instructies. Sommigen noemen dit “early involvement” en doen dit dmv persoonlijke begeleiding.

Eurocircuits noemt het de “Optimum design flow” en stelt “smart menus”, “DRC-“ en “DFM functionaliteit” online ter beschikking maar met hetzelfde doel: een prototype produceren “right first time”, op tijd en binnen budget.

Registeer nu gratis voor de beurs en vink het seminarie aan dat je wil bezoeken.

Wil je meer weten over het seminarie “betrouwbare elektronica ontwerpen en produceren” bezoek dan volgende pagina op de WoTS website.

Eurocircuits TV heeft een korte introductie film gemaakt over hoe Eurocircuits, “right first time“, de eerste keer goed, ziet.

Eurocircuits TV maakte ook reportages over elke stap in het creatieproces van de PROXIMO, het beursgadget voor de World of Electronics. VLOGs klik hier.

De enige manier om de PROXIMO te verwerven, is door te registeren voor de beurs, World of Electronics, en door uw gadget persoonlijk te komen ophalen tijdens de beurs.

Registeer nu gratis hier en haal uw PROXIMO af in Utrecht van 2 tem 5 oktober 2018.

U vindt Eurocircuits tijdens de World of Electronics in Stand 11F030. Bezoek ons en laat u inlichten over Eurocircuits, onze PCB en PCBA services en onze vele gratis te gebruiken slimme online tools. Het gebruik van de Eurocircuits online visualisatie en DFM tools is de beste garantie om uw Printed Circuit Board Assembled prototype of kleine serie, “right first time”, op tijd en binnen budget te verkrijgen.

First Think, Then Act, Leads to “right first time”! – seminar

PCB Services | eC Solutions

World of Electronics – Design and Manufacture reliable electronics !

WoTS is more than just an exhibition. Every morning there are various interesting seminars. Thursday morning October 4th, Eurocircuits supports the seminar “design and manufacture reliable electronics” with a lecture.

Our presentation presents the well known principle of “First Think, Then Act. We believe that this will lead to doing things “right first time”. We all have to close the gap between design and manufacturing and thus transforming CAD-data into correct and feasible CAM-production data.

To be able to do this designers need to consult manufacturing companies in an early phase during the design process to define manufacturable specifications for their board. Some manufacturers call this early involvement and consult customers on a personal basis. At Eurocircuits we support our customers with our eC Smart Tools which offer efficient DRC and DFM functionality. Using these tools before starting the actual layout of the board will lead to the “Optimum Design Flow” and doing things “Right First Time”.

Eurocircuits’ PCBA Services – resistors and capacitors for free!

PCB Services | eC Solutions
Summer holidays are over - share your technical insights
Eurocircuits’ PCBA Services – resistors and capacitors for free!

Here at Eurocircuits we constantly aspire to lead the market and surpass our customer expectations by offering the ultimate electronics service.

We now offer resistors and capacitors for free!!!

After importing your BOM, we crosscheck your selected manufacturers part number for every resistor or capacitor line against our equivalent generic alternative list and where we are able to find a match then we offer that part for free!! That’s right Free, no strings attached!!

When you select our assembly service in the PCB visualiser

You can then upload your BOM to the PCBA visualiser:

After the import stage, wher we find a generic component equivalent, we automatically select this component to replace the component in your BOM. You can identify these component replacements with the component lines with Blue check marks:

For resistors and capacitors, you can see in the summary that these components are marked as “free”:

What is the benefit to you?

What could be better than “free” components? Well, firstly we keep reels of the components on stock, therefore guaranteed availability. Being reeled components means automatically pick and placed = higher accuracy and faster production. In addition components are stored in optimal conditions this reduces the possibility of oxidation affecting solderability and quality.

But why do we do we offer the components free?

Nobody does anything for free and this is the case here, the benefits for us is huge,

  • We source larger volumes and therefore obtain a better purchasing price
  • We only purchase occasionally rather than investing time for every order identifying and sourcing
  • Always available, this means that once we receive the completed bare PCB we are not waiting for component deliveries, production can commence during the next available production slot
  • Components can then be loaded and placed to our Pick and place machine, this means higher accuracy and faster placements, this mean higher throughput and yield on our side.

Why not take advantage of our experience and expertise and benefit?

If you do not wish to benefit from this option then we can still use your original manufacturers part number and place the individual orders but you will be charge for the “non” generic components at the normal component price.

To switch off free components then in the PCB visualizer you should select the option:

Other changes to our assembly service, where a none E24 standard value is identified for a generic replacement we will round up or down the value to the nearest compatible E24 generic value. We now apply a 20% component price surcharge to components supplied by customer, we have applied this policy to resolve the additional costs incurred for component handling, this price is automatically calculated and can be found in the component line in the summary tab.

We have also explained in greater detail how the PCBA Services work in our PCBA Visualizer & Services section on the website.

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.

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.
