Choosing a PCBA Manufacturing Company
Choosing the right PCBA manufacturing company can be daunting and could mean the difference of a project’s failure or success. Take the Raspberry Pi for example. They managed to make their single-board computer affordable thanks to wise design choices and their choice of the right PCBA manufacturing companies. 8 Things to Look for in Choosing a PCBA Manufacturing Company #1 First is that the company must be a PCBA manufacturing company. There are companies that produce only PCBs. Other companies not only produce PCBs, but also include the sourcing and assembly of other electronic components onto the PCB. There are those that provide partial and there are those that can release the whole package providing full turnkey services. #2 An all too common category in seeking out any vendor or service provider is to check into their client base. Check on how many customers they already served. Or check how many they are currently serving, as well as the pedigree of those customers. Customers like Sony or Samsung are high-profile, but serving non high-profile companies also has benefits. The PCBA Manufacturing company you choose should have served the best, or at least reputable. And at the same time can manufacture […]
Smart Home Automation and Lifestyle Changes
Thanks to advances in technology, smart home automation envisioned decades ago is now a relatively inexpensive reality. Smart home automation involves that ability to intelligently control various aspects of home living. It is automated and monitored in order to provide a new level of comfort, convenience, entertainment, and security. Before, these solutions were only available for the upper 1% of the population. But the technology can now be attained by the middle class in various levels of home ownership. We’ll discuss below how smart home automation can change our lifestyles in a variety of ways. Comfort and Convenience We can only tolerate so much of the workplace daily grind, which can often make some of the common chores or home tasks difficult to manage. Especially without domestic help. Sometimes, it’s the little things in life that can create added “to do’s”, such as setting the alarm, setting up the thermostat, turning on the lights, or opening and closing the garage door upon departure or arrival. Smart home automation makes it possible to automate the small tasks as mentioned above. And there are already plenty of products in the market available. Examples include the Nest Thermostat. It automatically sets and regulates […]
Consumer Electronics Trends 2020

Engineering PCBA for Modern Electronics Devices
Engineering (PCBA) Printed Circuit Board Assembly for modern electronics devices has become both simple and advanced at the same time. It has become simple, as modern devices focus more and more on integrating various functions onto one chip (System on Chip or SoCs). Thus simplifying engineering PCBA design. This is true for smaller devices such as tablets, phones and smart watches. Complexity comes from larger, and more advanced machines, especially prototypes or first releases that have yet to employ the integration of some components in order to create proofs-of-concept. Other factors also come into play in the engineering PCBA for modern electronics devices. Size of Devices The increasingly shrinking devices such as smartwatches and phones have presented quite a challenge for the engineering PCBA. The increase of production of such devices as well as new form factors like Apple’s Trashcan and the new Mac Pro and IoT devices have forced PCB makers to find new materials and come up with new techniques to create flexible and high-density solutions. The newer trend now is the creation of voltage and high-temp resistant PCBs for the influx of electric vehicles. These are made on the larger scale and should be made more tolerant […]
Box Build Manufacturing
What is Box Build Manufacturing? Box build manufacturing is basically the manufacturing of an entire electronics device, including the PCB, all electronics components as well as the covers and casings depending on the client’s requirements. This is opposed to sourcing out PCB design and fabrication for later assembly with separately sourced components such as chips, jacks and ports. Many companies, especially electronics startups engage in this practice of contracting other companies to create their entire products. Unlike before, separate companies are sourced out for every component required for an electronic device. Not too many companies are able to engage in box build manufacturing, so device makers have to resort in contracting several component sources and assembly plants to complete and distribute their devices. Thanks to advances in engineering and fabrication such as 3D printing, we now have box build manufacturers that can handle the creation of entire devices. What Are the Benefits of Box Build Manufacturing? One great benefit in contracting a box build manufacturer, is that the process of device creation becomes so much easier for companies especially for startups.

Lower Raw Material Costs in Electronic Manufacturing
Lower Raw Material Costs in Electronic Manufacturing Lowering raw material costs while producing a high quality product has always been a challenge among manufacturers in various fields. While technological advances and high degrees of miniaturization has greatly helped the electronics industry, it remains a challenge to lower raw material costs. Prices are challenging in electronic manufacturing thanks to the fluctuating prices of raw materials. Just how does one reduce raw material costs in the electronics manufacturing setting? To lower raw material costs, here are a few suggestions: Diligently search for alternative vendors Try seeking discounts for bulk orders. This basic aspect of purchasing is where manufacturers look to gain more profit by seeking out lower cost materials and tools from the lowest bidder. The key is to widen the search for a vendor that can give more for less. Enticing vendors with bulk orders, as well as the promise of future orders, often results in larger discounts. Optimize the design of the product You’ll notice that a particular electronic device varies in model numbers even though the device looks and functions the same. Internally, the numbers differ as manufacturers fix internal design flaws. Or perhaps they are optimizing the components […]
Create the Best Flexible Circuit Board
One of the newest tech trends today is flexible electronics. Especially those with different form factors. Many of which would require a flexible circuit board. Foldable phones, for example, are the newest trends in gadgets. Along with smart watches, curved or flexible displays and speakers. Even now the continuous quest to create thinner and thinner laptops and phones require the creation of the best flexible circuit board. Devices that should be able to withstand the stresses of extensive daily use. As opposed to regular rigid circuit boards or PCBs the flexible circuit board (FPCB), is very thin, lightweight and flexible. They are often made of clear cellophane-like material such as copper-coated polyimide. This enables electronics manufacturers to create smaller, thinner, more flexible devices like mobile phones, wearables and ultrabooks. Their flexibility allows manufacturers to easily create smaller electronics of various shapes which were not possible decades ago. The flexible circuit board also allows for more complexity in circuit paths by easily allowing more layers while maintaining a thin profile. Flex boards can have from one to four layers depending on the complexity of the device. Advantages of flexible circuit board Other than their thinness and lightweight, design constraints are now […]
Power Transformers and Lasting Builds
Power Transformers and Builds that Last Electronics or electrical equipment do not last very long when supplied with the wrong amount of power especially in unstable situations. Unless they’re equipped with protective components like fuses and power transformers. The use of the correct power transformer in an electrical or electronics device ensures that the device will last far longer than devices that lack such protection. In an electronics system, the power transformer supplies power to various components. But in various lower voltages compared to the original voltage that flows from the power supply. A transformer’s main function is to convert or transform an amount of voltage to become higher or lower. The power transformer is also a good solution to isolate electronic circuitry from the high voltage electricity coming from an external public power supply. What are power transformers? Power transformers basically transfer electricity from one circuit to another using electromagnetic induction. The same principle as wireless charging for mobile phones. Transformers can also be used to increase (step up) or decrease (step down) voltages to a suitable level, depending on a device’s design requirements. There are several types of power transformers. The typical power transformer consists of a primary […]
