Assembly for printed circuit boards involves connecting circuit board wiring with an electronic product’s components. It’s the last stage of production in completing a functional device.
Printed circuit board assembly is an electro-mechanical manufacturing process that yields high-quality assemblies. These assemblies can implement in such value-added applications as box builds, or turnkey solutions manufacturing. The assembly process can also include prototyping, function testing and quick-turn or production volumes.
Assembling printed circuit boards requires close attention to detail with exacting precision to ensure an electronic device’s successful operation. Ideal assembly methods are:
- Plated Through-Hole Technology – Assembly involves components with attached leads that insert into printed circuit boards with drilled holes.
- Surface Mount Assembly – Metal tabs on components attach to printed circuit boards on both sides with soldering, yielding high-density circuits.
- Box-Build Assembly – This approach integrates printed circuit boards with other electronic components, such as cable assemblies or wire harnesses.
Benefits or PCB Assembly
