Are you all set to establish your electronic equipment manufacturing company? If yes, then you should have also started searching for the best PCB fabrication company. Without first manufacturing your PCBs you will not be able to take your dream to the next level.
The first step in this process is shortlisting the best PCB fabrication and PCB assembly company. Once you have managed to find the most trusted companies in the region, you should contact them with your requirements. Your manufacturers would be able to provide you with an accurate quote only when you provide them the required information.
Until you build your product and test its full functional capacity, it is nothing but an idea. When you want to get your quote, your manufacturer would want to gain a clear understanding about the product and the functionalities of the product.
Make sure to sign an NDA before you share your product concept with your PCB manufacturer. This will protect your interests as a customer and leaking of the idea or the misuse of your idea. Do not forget to sign an NDA in your enthusiasm to launch your product fast.
Upon signing the NDA, you should share all the pertinent information to our PCB manufacturer. At this stage, you are not likely to have your Gerber files. You would probably have just the schema of your product and what you expect it to do unless you already have got the product circuit designed with the help of PCB design engineer.
If you select an experienced company, they would know how to extract the required information from you and how to get started with the PCB design process. If you have the basic information, you may need to give the PCB manufacturer all the following details. How many PCBs are to be created for your device? How many layers in each board? What is the size of each board? What exactly does your device do and what is the function of the PCB in the actual device in which the PCB is installed? What is the thickness of the board to be used?
Do not worry even if you are not sure of all the above details. Provide your PCB manufacturer with as much information as possible and they will take care of the rest. Answer all the questions they ask and this will help them get a complete picture about your requirements.
If your PCB manufacturer fails to get all the information they need then you may not be able to get an accurate quote. So it is best to find a design engineer to get a detailed specifications document that could be passed on to your PCB manufacturer.
Remember the initial stages are the most crucial stages of the product development cycle. Finding the right PCB manufacturing company is certainly an important aspect of product development process for an electronic equipment manufacturer. Look for the most competitively priced service providers to take care of your needs.
