How to Find the Right Company to Manufacture Your Circuit Board

The creation of a circuit board from start to finish typically takes a substantial amount of time given all of the processes that are involved. It starts with the initial idea and moves on to the design, which then needs to be tested before it can be fully manufactured and produced. There is a way to help save quite a bit of time after the initial design has been completed. There are some companies today that promote their ability to offer same-day turnarounds for the circuit boards. When many people think about the concept of same-day service for their circuit boards, it’s natural to be somewhat unsure.

Advanced Circuits has the capabilities, the technology, and the expertise to provide you with just what you need.

A Fast Turnaround Time

Advanced Circuits has more than a quarter of a century in the field of circuit boards. The company can provide unbelievably fast turnarounds for high-quality, premium circuit boards as well as prototype boards. When you choose to use the company, you will find a host of benefits that help to make it a solid choice all around.

One of the best features, which is not offered by many of the other manufacturers, is a huge production area. This means that all of the work done on the PCB from manufacturing to assembly can begin and end right at the facility, rather than sending the PCBs elsewhere for completion. The company is one of the few options that are capable of manufacturing and assembling circuit boards and shipping them out the same day or the next day.

However, it is not just a fast turnaround time for the circuit boards that help to make the company a good solution.

Plenty of Support

You will also find help through each step of the process including access to PCB Artist, our free PCB design software. This means that even at the design stage of the process, there are tools that can help you to get the design from idea to production very quickly. The software has a components library with more than half a million parts and it provides more features than even many of the expensive pieces of design software that are on the market today.

Those who might already be using their own program to design the circuit board will still be able to use FreeDFM, which tests the manufacturing quality of the design, for a Gerber file check. This helps to highlight any issues that might be in the design and it can even fix some of the issues automatically. Users will be able to generate a report that will highlight any of the issues that might be present. This allows you to make those changes quickly and easily so you can get your design into manufacturing.

The support goes well beyond just the software and the file checker, of course. There are team members who can provide you with a quote for the circuit board based on the design specs. Once you are sure the board is working properly, there are members of the team that can help with the final production phases of the board all the way through the assembly phase. To make the service even better than is a full CAM review that will take place before the manufacturing starts. This helps to ensure that the design is what is needed and that there aren’t any mistakes. In addition, there are visual inspections of the circuit boards that have been produced.

Tech support is also available. Anyone who has created a design for a circuit board knows that it can be beneficial to have an extra set of eyes on it to make sure it is working properly. There might even be a few questions that you will want to have answered before you finish up the design. Thankfully, the tech support that is available will ensure that you have support around the clock to help troubleshoot any issues. In fact, it is even possible to get in touch with a CAM engineer 24-hours a day.

Even the pricing is nice and clear. There aren’t any setup fees or stenciling fees, and you will find that there are no hidden costs. This ensures those who use the service will know what they are paying. It doesn’t matter if you have a large order that needs to be completed or if you have a small order of just one prototype. Advanced Circuits has you covered. When you work with us, you are essentially choosing a one-stop-shop company that can take care of all of your circuit board needs.

It’s Done In-House

In today’s world, so many aspects of so many companies are outsourced. However, with Advanced Circuits, the work is done at the premises since it is not a broker. There is no outsourcing for different elements of the production. By keeping everything at the company from the testing through to the production, the amount of time it takes to go from start to completed product that’s been shipped is reduced. In addition, costs can be reduced since everything is streamlined and done at the premises.

Who Should Consider It?

Those who are already in the stage to move on with manufacturing and are sure they have a great, workable design will find that Advanced Circuits is a stellar option. Even those who are still in the beginning stages and are looking for quality software to help them design the circuit board will find that it’s a great choice. From start to finish, no matter the size of the project, this is a company that can deliver results.

Given all of the benefits that are available, it only makes sense to choose Advanced Circuits. It’s affordable and customers can get instant quotes. You can even track your orders, which will arrive a lot faster than many people anticipate when it comes to manufacturing PCBs. If you want the best quality available for your circuit boards, Advanced Circuit is a trusted choice!
