What is a Prototype PCB Assembly?
There are many names for prototype printed circuit board (PCB) assemblies. Other names you will commonly hear are: surface-mount technology (SMT) PCB prototypes, PCBA prototype assembly, PCB sample assembly, etc.
The term prototype PCB Assembly refers to a fast prototype PCBA used to test the function of new electronic designs. These help with quality assurance, verifying that there is no problem with the test product, finding bugs, and updating the design. Typically, before mass production, one electronic project will need 2-3 iterations of a prototype PCB assembly to make sure everything is working perfecty.
Winow supports engineers to assemble their electronic prototype quickly and cost effectively during the whole design verification process. To ensure that the product design meets requirements, in general, we suggest 5 pcb or 10pcs for prototype assembly testing. Of course, one or two piece is also OK, so long as it can be verified.
PCB prototyping has always been one of our most requested services, whether it’s PCB prototype fabrication or assembly. Our expert engineers will check and test your layout to ensure the correct prototype is fabricated and assembled on the first assembly run. Through our network of PCB component suppliers and SMT assembly engineers, we can ensure you a quick turn around and top quality circuit board. We offer low volume circuit assembly for prototyping with DFM and DFT to eliminate possible issues in your product.
