With no minimum order quantity or machinery setup overhead, hand-soldering is ideal for low volume, rapid turnaround custom PCBAs.
Our highly skilled technicians are experts at soldering even the tiniest surface mount electronic components.
This means your prototypes are production-representative, using the same design and components as those used in your final volume manufacture.
Our technicians and engineers work closely together, meaning we can quickly iterate through the cycle of designing, building, testing and modifying boards to really accelerate the development process.
We can also manufacture higher volumes of PCBs using our automated pick and place machine, so once your prototype is proven we can seamlessly transfer the design to full production methods.
When building prototype PCBs we often need to put together a few other 'bits and bobs' too, from basic enclosures with connector cut-outs to more complex assemblies that can help us test different aspects of a design.
Our own mechanical workshop equipped with tools including CNC machine and 3D printer, plus metalworking capabilities from an industrial partner on-site, allow us to rapidly put together the parts we need.
Tried and Tested
Our prototyping service is about more than simply building PCB assemblies.
Our design engineers set to work, test, and evaluate your prototype for you too, reviewing aspects that work well and suggesting areas that might need improvement.
Creating iterative engineering prototypes is a key part of our phased development process, but we're also happy to build PCB assemblies from your own design, or to wire up evaluation modules (EVMs) to help you create a minimum viable product (MVP).
