Printed circuit boards have been widely used nowadays, but its concept dates back from the early days of the 20th century. Various inventors from all around the world such as Albert Hanson, Thomas Alva Edison, and Paul Eisler experimented with the idea of a conductive metal mounted on a non-conductive backing material.
However, it was only during the Second World War that printed circuit boards were extensively used by the military.
Apparently, the United States Army required an electronic circuit that can be easily produced en masse – yet also reliable enough to withstand being fired from a gun. The perfect solution for this dilemma was the PCB, which was used as a major component for proximity fuzes that detonated explosive charges within its range. Over the years, successive research work has been done until printed circuit boards have been adopted in both consumer electronics and specialized applications.
While PCBs have revolutionized the field of electronics over the years, a lot of companies nowadays still have a hard time when it comes to sourcing them for various purposes. Domestic production costs higher, and this has led to circuit board production being outsourced overseas in order to reduce overhead costs. A major issue, however, is that PCBs produced outside the country are notorious for sub-par quality – causing product malfunction. This is where we, at PCBNet come in. We disprove the usual perception of PCBs manufactured overseas. With our company’s extensive experience and knowledge in producing printed circuit boards, all orders from the first piece up to the last are guaranteed to have utmost quality.
PCBNet’s production facilities located in Asian technology powerhouses like Korea and Taiwan have received various certifications, attesting to the superior output and processes in use. Some of these certifications are UL94V-0, ISO-9002, QS-9000, and ISO-14000. In addition, we are honored to have a few technology companies as partners when it comes to printed circuit board assembly. Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, and Whirlpool are just some of our trusted partners.
What makes PCBNet different from the rest of the printed circuit board manufacturers around?
Simple. Our more than 18 years of domestic experience in the field, coupled with state of the art equipment and well trained production staff, have given us the noteworthy reputation of quick delivery when it comes to circuit board fabrication and assembly. No matter how large or small any PCB requirement your company calls for, rest assured that we can deliver it on time without sacrificing quality. Small quantities are turned out in five to six days, and larger onces are expected to be finished in two to three weeks.
One of our recent innovations here at PCBNet is the full turnkey quotes through our website. This is a convenient option for customers who may need quotations for mass manufacturing of circuit boards, whether it is for testing or actual production. For a quote, the following requirements should be submitted: bill of materials, assembly drawing or Gerber files in a 274X format, Centroid or pick and place data, and samples (if available). Once we receive the requirements, a friendly procurement specialist will respond at the soonest possible time with a full quote.
Aside from turnkey quotation, we also have custom PCB materials for specialized purposes. Different types of printed circuit boards are available—multi-layer, rigid, and flex. Specialized metal substrates can also be used depending on the job – like aluminum core, Nelco, Arlon, and many others.
Our passionate and experienced team of production specialists are dedicated to fabricating the best printed circuit boards for a wide range of applications. We make it possible with the latest equipment and novel methods of PCB fabrication. PCBNet is fully committed to delivering the requirements of our customers and helping their businesses grow. Do not hesitate to contact us for any inquiries about printed circuit board assembly, and we will gladly respond to your query at the soonest time possible.
