PCB Fab & Prototype Assembly Under One Roof

Advanced Circuits™ is the true “one-stop” solution for printed circuit board manufacturing and assembly all under one roof and as quick as one day.  The seamless process takes the hassle of dealing with multiple vendors and cuts down on the shipping delays that can occur when shipping your boards to a separate facility for assembly.

Quick Turn Assembly for Small Quantity PCB Prototypes

Having your small quantity prototype boards fabricated, populated, and shipped as fast as one day is made possible by Advanced Circuits™ because we can do all the work in-house within the same facility which eliminates miscommunication issues and delays that can occur when shipping your printed circuit boards to another vendor for prototype assembly.

Our prototype assembly capabilities include Surface Mount Technology (SMT), Thru-hole, Mixed Technology (SMT & Thru-hole), Single or Double Sided Placement, Fine Pitch Components, and so much more.  We have no assembly “set-up” charges, no NREs, and no stencil charges and use the latest state-of-the-art MyData equipment.  All PCB files receive a detailed CAM review to ensure your printed circuit boards flow seamlessly from fabrication to assembly.

PCB Assembly Capabilities

We specialize in Quick Turn PCB assembly for small quantity orders.  However, we do offer many flexible turn time options, such as Weekend turns for Monday morning delivery, longer lead times such as 4 week turns, and scheduled shipments.  Advanced Circuits offers parts procurement for turnkey assembly, partial turnkey, and kitted/consigned.
