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”.

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?

Eurocircuits TIPS & TRICKS – PCBA Visualizer




Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – PCBA Visualizer


We are 3 months on the way now with our PCBA Visualizer beta testing phase and we would like to share our experiences and some tips & tricks how to use our tool efficiently.

After launching PCBA Visualizer, the natural DRC DFM extension tool of our well proven PCB Visualizer for bare boards, we processed about 5 jobs per day for various customers. This has given us the necessary info to start building a professional verified component data base and improving the tools to complete your BoM and CPL analyses.

We have compiled our message in a video on Eurocircuits.TV

If you have any questions about this or any other service please feel free to get in touch and we will be more than happy to help. Try out our online chat!

Eurocircuits presents PCB Assembly Visualizer

Your designs are electronic applications, which you would like to build. Our goal is to help you to do this, right first time.

Virtually simulating the production, allows us both to examine future results before we physically build anything thus saving time and money.

Until recently our PCB Visualizer tool allowed you to do all of this, for the bare board.

We have now taken this philosophy one production step further, and are presenting our new PCB Assembly Visualizer. Visualizing the components on the bare board allows a whole new set of Design Rule Checks and Design for Manufacturability checks.

 

The help we offer is called PCB Assembly Visualizer. It contains:

  • A database of verified components
  • A set of visual online tools:
    • BOM-editor analyses your components
    • CPL-editor places your components on the bare board

 

We have prepared a video with a demo session that will clarify all these issues for you.

 

We are convinced, that if your design is processed through our PCB Visualizer and PCB Assembly Visualizer, thus offering you a validated BOM and CPL, the access to Electronic Manufacturing Services for your prototypes and small series, will be easier.

Unnecessary overheads are avoided and machine setup times are shortened, allowing EMS companies to make money with smaller orders, which will be better affordable for designer customers.

Our aim is not to manage all components but to do so for the current components. Our Indian team of engineers started to build the database, currently based on BOM-lists that our beta-test customers are uploading. Each time a new part is selected, from a supplier databases that we can access, the part description and footprint are verified and added to our database. We are not looking for all possible parts, as we do not want to build a historic database of components, but a database of components that are currently being used by our customers. The number of orders, passing daily through our systems, guarantees that our database will have the potential to grow rapidly.

Until now our customers are used to only supply us the bare board data. We invite all to participate in our beta process and to upload the BOM and CPL files together with the bare board data. This option will be available until we have reached our daily capacity for BOM processing. Participating in this beta phase will assure that your BOM and CPL specifics will be covered by our system, once we deploy it and that your components are verified and are in our database. Our engineers will analyse your BOM list and add all missing parts and footprints to our database. After analyses, the PCB Assembly Visualizer will be available in your online customer account, in the running orders section. You can then view your PCB including components and all DRC results.

 

Your PCBA prototypes and small series, right first time, is our goal!
