At Define Instruments, our design team is experienced in designing a wide variety of electronic instruments, and can offer you assistance with everything from hardware design to EMC compliance and embedded software design.
PCB layout and placement of components can have a significant impact on manufacturing efficiency. For example, PCBs can be panelised too large to wave, or through hole components can be placed in such a way that they need to be hand soldered. By working with our PCB design engineers, you can eliminate potential manufacturing problems in the design stages.
We are happy to develop your PCB layout with you, or assist you in refining your own design. We can also recommend a third party layout consultant if you require this service.
Designed for Manufacturability
As part of our service, we’ll review your design to make sure that it has reached the highest possible level of manufacturability – reducing both your manufacturing costs and the time taken to complete the job.
Our PCB stencils are laser cut from stainless steel, mechanically printed, and framed to fit our automated machinery. An investment in one of our durable, high-quality stencils will result in consistent, precise adhesion of your components throughout the production run.
To create your stencil you must supply either a gerber, altium PCB or PADS file for PCB fabrication.
Our screen printer is equipped with 2D post print inspection, to automatically check for insufficient solder and bridge solder print errors.
