Advanced PCB Fabrication Capabilities for Defense and Aerospace Applications

Advanced Circuits has been a leader in the printed circuit board manufacturing industry for over 25 years with a special focus on advanced PCB manufacturing capabilities for precision and on-time reliability.  We offer full service PCB fabrication services and in-house prototype assembly capabilities with no minimum quantity requirements.

Our powerful PCB fabrication solutions range from the simplest circuit board designs to the most rigorous design requirements for the medical, commercial, defense, and aerospace marketplaces.  Advanced Circuits is committed to U.S.A. manufacturing with three facilities in Arizona, Colorado, and Minnesota totaling over 200,000 square feet of manufacturing space.  Providing enhanced support to the military/defense and aerospace industries for PCB fabrication, Advanced Circuits has made significant capital investments over the years to meet stringent standards and fabrication requirements of some of the most technologically advanced circuit board designs for mission-critical applications.

Advanced Circuits’ Three PCB Fabrication Facilities are ITAR Registered

All three of Advanced Circuits’ PCB fabrication facilities are are fully compliant and follow strict security protocols with the United States International Trade in Arms Regulations (ITAR) which is an important factor for our aerospace and defense industry customers.  To download our industry certifications and review our ITAR documentation, please visit our Certifications page on our website 4pcb.com.

Advanced Circuits’ Minnesota PCB fabrication facility is also DOD contracts ready with elevated security measures and compliance protocols that only few PCB manufacturers in the U.S.A. meet for Department of Defense contracts.

Expanded PCB Fabrication Laminates and Capabilities

Advanced Circuits sources many types of PCB laminates from top industry providers to bring you a wide range of options such as enhanced epoxy laminates, ultra-low moisture materials, high-frequency ceramic filled laminates, RoHS compliant, and more.  As North America’s third largest PCB manufacturer, we are able to work closely with laminate providers like Isola, Nelco, Arlon, Rogers, Taconic, 3M, Panasonic, and others to quickly source the materials our customers demand.  We carry laminate materials suitable for applications such as:
