Description

Turnkey or ready-to-use PCB is a generic term applied to a set of electronic goods which can be purchased from a manufacturer and which are packed and shipped to end users. The concept of turning a tangible object into a functioning electronic product has made it the most widely used methodology for electronics manufacturing and is becoming more prevalent in circuit design and prototyping. The term “turnkey” is actually a misnomer since a PCB is not considered to be “turn” until it has been completely tested and produced. On the other hand, a ready-to-use PCB is referred to as such since the device can be used immediately following fabrication and is generally less expensive than a turnkey product.

A turnkey pcb assembly process refers to a PCB manufacturer that manufactures PCBs to standard specifications. The intention behind the standardisation is to create consistent, repeatable processes that help save time and money. By standardising the manufacturing process, companies are able to offer a consistent product that meets exacting standards for which they are competing. In addition, the process enables the manufacturer to build high quality PCBs in a shorter period of time and at significantly reduced costs.

This type of production process is popular worldwide and helps reduce material usage. Instead of purchasing an entire PCB from a supplier, an individual client can choose a particular component to be included in their order and have the whole board customized according to their specifications. The entire process of turning a raw material into a finished component is known as ‘PCB construction’ and this is precisely the reason why component based PCBs are much more cost effective than ‘ready to use’ printers cartridges for mass printing. Additionally, component-based PCBs are flexible in terms of design and are often able to accommodate changes in the component specification. Because components are easily replaced, customers are provided with a constant supply of new components at a fraction of the cost of purchasing new cartridges.

Another benefit of sourcing components through a turnkey pcb assembly company is that lead times are considerably reduced. Since the majority of components in a printed circuit board are soldered on the site of the factory where they were manufactured, lead times in most cases are only a few weeks at most. Components purchased from the source therefore arrive at the final production site much sooner. This means that the end consumer will experience significant cost savings as a result of these reduced lead times.

By purchasing PCBs directly from a turnkey pcb assembly manufacturer, you also benefit from a selection of choice circuit boards. Some of the best circuit boards available in the market today are the HETE multimode boards that come with pre-installed Ethernet WAN drivers along with 100% compatible AMT flashes. The standard size of these boards are seven inches but due to popular demand, manufacturers are creating products in a variety of different sizes including twenty-two inches, thirty-two inches, forty-two inches and fifty inches. In addition to offering a diverse selection of board sizes, some of the better known manufacturers such as ITWig, Inc. have been providing clients with custom ordered PCBs for a number of years. These manufacturers have also managed to reduce the lead times associated with these custom sized boards, thus improving the quality of the products they produce.

The final benefit of sourcing your electronics components through a turnkey pcb assembly company is that the final product will be produced in one piece. Most of the companies manufacturing these types of circuit boards have a production process that involves forming the boards into their final shape by using a combination of soldering and stamping processes. Once the components have been formed, they are then soldered together either using flux or epoxy. Finally, they are then packed and shipped off to you ready for you to complete the process of incorporating the design elements into the final design.
