The following information is required for all component purchasing / receiving / verification / inspection / programming the pick & place equipment and PCB assembly work instructions creation.
Please note that we require the following information to complete the pcb assembly process, or you job will be delayed at your expense. (Note 1: Our CAM team must be notified up front that if this information is not received, the job cannot be assigned to the production floor).
The customer must provide us with PCB Silk Screen polarity mark information on all polarized parts (cathode, anode, pin number and what the dot or plus sign indicate.
The customer must provide the CAM team with all drawings needed to complete the surface mount PCB assembly process.
Lead time will be impacted if proper attrition is not supplied. We will always work with our customers when it comes to customer supplied components; the following is our standard guidelines. If you have expensive or a minimum quantity of any component on hand please contact the assembly sales team for details.
The following are acceptable packages of consignment / customer supplied components (Bulk SMT not acceptable):
|Package||Minimum Base||Minimum Overage|
SMT electronic components, not supplied on reels, are required to be on one continuous strip of tape. Resistors, Capacitors, Diodes (0603, 0805, 1206, 2225, SOT, SOD, MELF – packages) require a minimum of 50 pcs and/or has to exceed the required quantity by 30 pcs. (Example: build req. 40 pcs – we will require 70 pcs – this meets our minimum required 50 pcs plus 30 pcs above build requirement) Resistors, Capacitors, Diodes (0201, 0402, mini-melf, miniature packages) require a minimum of 100 pcs and/or has to exceed the required quantity by 50 pcs. (Example: build req. 80 – we will require 130 – this meets our minimum required 100 pcs plus 50 pcs above build requirement).
