Prototyping has been a challenge for printed circuit board designers for decades. Most options available were designed for large scale manufacturers with long lead times and large budgets. But these days, many people have the skill and desire to design PCBs and use them in all sorts of innovative new products and inventions. A small budget or quick turnaround time shouldn’t keep you from turning your idea into a prototype.

Fortunately, a new class of PCB prototyping service has launched. These services have figured out how to leverage a cloud-based platform alongside modern manufacturing methods to provide a seamless experience. In fact, they can take you from prototyping your initial concept, to assembling and delivering the final product to your customer. Depending on your needs, here are the things to look for when you select your PCB prototyping service partner.

Our state-of-the-art assembly equipments enable us to meet all your PCBA needs under one roof in an inexpensive way, our Printed Circuits Boards Assembly Capability includes but not limited to what are listed below, as we are updating our equipments constantly to keep us on the cutting edge. If your PCB Assembly demands are beyond these capabilities, please contact us at sales@pcbwell.com, we will respond if we can do or not within 8-12 hours.

Item # Item Name PCBA Capability
1. Lead Time We are proud of our quick turn time for our PCBA services.2-5 days for only PCB assembly,10-16 days for turnkey PCB assembly. Please choose appropriate time option to fit your schedule and budget. Due to the complexity of how to determine the turn time of PCBA services, our policy is that turn-time begins immediately after all the parts are ready and all the PCB files (Gerber files/other PCB files, etc.,) , Centroid (Pick & Place PNP file, or XY Data or files in other formats), BOM, and all other necessary data or documents/images/photos are complete for our assembly work.
2. Parts Source Consigned/kitted We prefer you supply all the parts for the PCBA services. In this case, please send us all the components with BOM file and detailed packing list indicating i tem number, customer or manufacturer’s part number and quantity in kit.
Turn-key With our wide and powerful network of parts sourcing, we offer Turn-key PCBA service. We do not mark up on the parts cost. Considering the big price gap between different suppliers, we only source from reliable suppliers who may have no price advantages. We will always ask for your approval before making any decisions.
Partial Turn-key/Combo This is our regular practice which you offer the main devices and components, while we source the rest for you. Just like the Turn-key service, we will ask for your approval on every details of the parts concerning price, quality and availability.
3. Assembly Options We offer Surface Mount (SMT), Thru-Hole (THT) and hybrid of both. We also offer single or double-sided placement.
4. Types of Solder We offer both leaded and lead-free (RoHS Compliant) assembly services for our customers. Please choose one to best fit your PCB and the parts on the PCB.
5. Stencils We use laser cut stainless steel stencils to ensure high reliability for fine pitch and BGA components. Nano coating is available upon request.
6. Minimum Order Our minimum is as low as 5 pieces. We do not want you to pay for what you do not need indeed to save you money.
7. Component Size
  • Passive Component: we can accept components as small as 01005, 0201,0402.
  • BGA: We have the ability to handle BGA of 0.25mm pitch with X-ray testing.
  • Fine Pitch Parts: we can assemble 0.25mm fine pitch parts.
8. Component Package We accept parts in Reels, Cut Tape, Tube & Tray, Loose Parts and Bulk.
9. Board Dimension
  • Min Board Size: 50mm x 100mm (Boards smaller than this size need to be panelized)
  • Max Board Size: 250mm x 500mm
10. Board Shape We can assemble boards in Rectangular, Circular and any Odd Shapes. (For shapes other than rectangle, you need to panelize the boards in an array, and add break-away rails at the two longer paralleled edges of the panelized boards to ensure that the boards can be assembled by the machine.)
11. Board Type Currently we handles Rigid boards mostly. As we have the ability to handle flex and rigid-flex boards, please contact service@pcbwell.com if your boards are of flex or rigid-flex.
12. Repair & Rework Repair and rework can be difficult, but we do. Our BGA reballing service with which we can safely remove the misplaced BGA, reball it and put it back on the PCB correctly. It is cost-effective.

PCB prototyping boards can be combined into a variety of simple and complex printed circuit board.These boards can help reduce solder connections and the number of wires that need to be used to connect several different circuit components together. They can provide power and ground bussing, thus providing an easy opportunity for multiple components to connect to the power bus if needed.
PCB prototype are often used to prove a concept of an electrical circuit before a final design is sent for manufacturing.
Using a prototype PCB allows for several different changes and iterations without the wasted development time and increased cost of having to redesign the circuit.
