8 Cost Saving Steps for Your Next Design
Advanced Assembly
Large or small, every company wants to decrease costs without affecting the quality of their products or services. There is rarely a perfect way to achieve this and PCB design and assembly is no exception. Accurately assembling PCBs is not an easy task; it takes experience, technology and, above all, dedicated people to ensure your projects are done right. When searching for a low-volume assembly shop to populate your boards, it may be tempting to use a low-cost shop to save money. However, doing so may end up costing more in the long term due to reliability concerns and lower throughput, which could result in a damaged reputation.
