Product image 1: PCB Layout & Optimization

As the nation’s leading PCB manufacturer, we are uniquely qualified to optimize your printed circuit board designs.

Our engineers prioritize performance, manufacturability, cost, and design for test-ability to ensure the best possible board at a fair price. Our areas of PCB optimization service and expertise include:

  • High-speed boards (HDMI, DDR)
  • HDI (high-density interconnect)
  • Design with fine-pitch BGA and QFN assembly
  • Flex and rigid-flex printed circuit board design
  • Chip evaluation and chip characterization boards
  • Radio frequency design (RF)
  • Stacked microvias
  • IPC class 2 and class 3/ES production capabilities
  • ISO 9001:2015, AS9100D, and ISO 13485:2016 certified
  • ITAR registered

Printed circuit board optimization services, capabilities, and testing

Schematic capture

We can create schematics from specifications, marked-up schematic sheets, or black diagrams and verbal discussions. We accept schematics in any format (PDF, sketch, etc.) and can convert that into preferred CAD format. As part of our process we validate the BOM.

Reverse engineering

Are you missing your original PCB design data and documentation?  We can take an existing board from a bare board, an assembled board, existing drawings, and we can create a new design with all supporting documentation.

Cost optimization

We can review an existing product or design and propose methods for cost reduction. In many cases, layer reduction can be achieved by using smaller geometries for conductors and vias and the use of laser-drilled microvias.

PCB stack-up design

Before we start the layout design, we will do an in-house stackup design so that all the design objectives are met. We will also suggest if HDI technology is required or could help in PCB optimization.

PCB design tools

We use the standard tools from Cadence, Siemens, and Altium. We can accept a netlist or a partial / fully placed netlist. We can use our library of parts or customer libraries. We can provide a 24/7 service and our design team can schedule video conferences to support you. We have access to off-shore resources that can work on your design while you sleep.

Signal integrity services

We can perform signal integrity services on any high-speed board designs that we make. We will take care of control impedance and crosstalk requirements; we will take care of PCB materials that are suitable to achieve a given set of signal integrity specifications.
