PCB Design

Experience

Our biggest asset is our experience.

We could list the types of boards that we are experienced in here, however in reality it would probably be easier to list the type of boards we haven't worked on, but even that may end up being a very empty page!

There isn't much that surprises us nowadays…. you want 3 levels of microvia on a 32 layer board…or perhaps an RF design that needs to fit into a tiny space…or maybe a high current PCB that needs special spacing considerations……no problem.
Ability

We probably know more about using PADS design tools than anyone at Mentor Graphics, having not only designed with the tool for more years than the company has been running but also because up until recently we were contracted to support the PADS distributors technical support team.

But it is also our ability to understand what you the customer wants, to interpret and manage the many design constraints that today’s PCB’s demand, and to learn and adapt to new technologies and to ensure that we are fully conversant with all the latest design and manufacturing techniques.
Process

This is how we are able to repeatedly produce top quality PCB Design, it’s all about the process and we are sticklers for it, don’t try and get us to cut corners, we won’t.

There is a strict order to PCB Design, you cannot jump stages, and if you have to go back a few steps then each successive step must follow the same strict order…there are NO shortcuts, it’s like a game of snakes and ladders…without the ladders!

Alongside this we use a database system called Goldmine. So what ? Well this system locks your email to your company and therefore every email in and out is stored under your company in date order…hence we have an automatic document control system. If we send you an email headed “PLACEMENT FOR REVIEW”, the next email back from you will be your comments on that placement…etc perfect!

Furthermore any attachments that we receive with the same name are automatically given a suffix so that we can track changes.
