Yes. This practice is called partial Turn-key. You can supply some parts, and we source the rest of the parts on your behalf. We will ask for your approval for anything that is not sure at our side. In case parts crossing or substitution is needed, we will again ask for your final approval.

Yes, We have the ability to handle BGA of 0.25mm pitch with X-ray testing. For BGAs, there are two designs with via on pad and via near pad connected by shorter trace. We need to tent and fill any vias near pad of the BGAs with solder mask to ensure the soldering quality. But for vias on pad, we need to fill via with resin to make sure good soldering quality.

Excessive parts do exist because we will ask for some percentage of overage for consigned/kitted orders, or we will buy more for the same purpose for those Turn-key orders. You can either ask us to ship back to you these unused parts together with the loaded boards, or keep them in our shelf for your next order. All up to you.

What is PCBA?

PCBA is an acronym for Printed Circuit Board Assembly. A PCBA typically refers to the board assembly process that solders electronic components to a printed circuit board (PCB). The PCBA is also used to describe the final product that results from this assembly process, a PCB with electronic components soldered onto it. 

PCBA is used in various electronic devices, from simple circuits to complex computers. They are an essential part of the manufacturing process for many electronics products. PCBA can be made by hand or using automated assembly machines. The assembly process typically includes attaching the components to the PCB, soldering them in place, and testing the finished product.

PCBA

The difference between PCB and PCBA

The main difference between a PCB and a PCBA is that a PCB is an actual board on which the components are mounted. In contrast, a PCBA is the process of assembling the electrical elements onto the PCB. In general, PCBs are manufactured using fiberglass or a composite epoxy. The PCB contain on its surface, the electrically conductive paths that connect the individual circuit elements. They are printed onto the board according to the design. 

These conductive paths are mostly made of copper and, in most cases, coated with tin-lead to prevent oxidation and corrosion of those paths. Alternatively, PCBAs is the specialized assembling procedure of the PCB with the required electrical components. There are two main methods for assembling PCBs: surface-mount technology (SMT) and through-hole (TH).

surface mount technology

What are the types of PCB assembly?

The three most common types of PCB assembly are through-hole, surface-mount, and mixed. Through-hole assembly involves mounting electronic components to the PCB using leads that are put in via holes drilled in the PCB. Surface-mount assembly involves mounting electronic components to the PCB using pads on the its surface. Mixed assembly involves a combination of surface-mount and through-hole components. The PCBA process for through-hole components is typically slower and more expensive than the process for surface-mount components. However, through-hole components can provide better electrical performance and are more resistant to vibration and thermal stress.

What are the processes of PCB assembly?

Different PCBA assembly processes involve technologies such as:
SMT: It is a procedure in which circuit components are placed on top of the surface of a PCB.
Through-hole: It is a process of mounting electronic circuit elements on a PCB by putting in metalic leads via holes drilled in a PCB and then soldering the leads on the back  of PCB.
Ball Grid Array (BGA): It is an range of solder balls that are used to connect an integrated circuit (IC) to a PCB.
Chip on Board (COB): It is a method of packaging an IC and other electronic components onto a PCB.
Flip Chip: A flip chip, also known as a microelectronic device, is an IC that has been flipped over and connected directly to its substrate or carrier.

PCB soldering

How does PCB assembly process work?

The process of assembling a PCBA typically starts with a design file. This file is then used to generate a “Gerber” file, which is a set of files that define the layout of the PCB. PCB manufacturer uses these files to create a physical PCB. The PCB is then sent to an assembly house, which uses it to create a stencil. The stencil is a metal plate with holes corresponding to the pads on the PCB. The assembly house then uses the stencil to place the components on the PCB. Once the components are in place, the PCBA assembly house will solder them in place using a reflow oven.

What materials are used in the PCBA circuit board?

  • Many materials are used in PCBA circuit boards, but the most common are FR-4, CEM-1, CEM-3, polyimide, and Teflon. The choice of material depends on the application and the required performance of the PCBA. FR-4 is a common material for PCBAs because it is strong and has good heat resistance. Polyimide is often used for high-temperature applications, while Teflon is used for its electrical properties
  •  

CEM-1 is a paper-reinforced epoxy laminate that is often used in lower-temperature applications. It has good dimensional stability but is not as resistant to chemicals as FR-4. CEM-3 is a woven glass-reinforced epoxy laminate that is often used in high-frequency applications. It has excellent dimensional stability and is resistant to most chemicals. Also, Rogers RO4003C is a ceramic-filled PTFE laminate that is often used in high-frequency applications. It has excellent dimensional stability and is resistant to most chemicals.

What is the manufacturing process of a PCBA circuit board?

The manufacturing processes of PCBA assembly involve the following steps:
1.Solder paste printing: A stencil is used to apply solder paste to the PCB.

  • 2.Pick and place: Components are placed on the PCB using a pick and place machine.

3.Reflow soldering: The PCB is heated to melt the solder paste and create the solder joints.
4.Optical inspection: The PCB is inspected for defects using a microscope.
5.Electrical testing: The PCB is tested for electrical functionality.

Similarly, PCBA is also manufactured with multi-layered, double sided, and single sided boards. Multi-layered PCBAs have three or more layers of conductive material sandwiched together with insulating layers between them. Double-sided PCBAs contain components on front and back. Single-sided PCBAs contain all of their components on one side. However, multi-layered PCBA is more complex and expensive than single-sided or double-sided PCBAs. Still, they offer better electrical performance and allow for smaller, more densely packed circuits.

The fabrication process of PCBA circuit board assembly

The fabrication process of PCBA circuit board assembly uses various technologies such as:
1.PCB design and layout: This technology helps create the circuit board design and layout.
2.PCB etching: This helps remove unwanted copper from the circuit board.
3.PCB drilling: This helps create holes in the circuit board.
4.PCB plating: This helps coat the circuit board with a thin metal layer.
5)PCB soldering: This is used to connect the components to the circuit board.
6)PCB testing: This is used to test the circuit board assembly for proper functioning.

How to choose the right PCBA manufacturer?

There are many factors to consider when choosing a PCBA manufacturer. The most crucial factor is whether the manufacturer can provide high-quality products and services. Other factors to consider include the manufacturer’s experience, reputation, and price. It is also essential to check the manufacturing process of the PCBA manufacturer. 

Ensure the manufacturer uses high-quality materials and follows all the necessary quality control procedures. When requesting quotes, be sure to specify the type of product you need and the quantity. This will help the manufacturer provide you with an accurate quote. Once you have received the quotes, you can compare the prices and choose the most affordable option. 

The best way to find a reputable PCBA manufacturer is to ask for recommendations from people who have used the services of a particular manufacturer. You can also search for reviews of PCBA manufacturers online. Once you have shortlisted a few manufacturers, you can contact them and request quotes. Finally, you should also consider the customer service of the manufacturer. The manufacturer should be able to provide you with timely and efficient customer service.
