Our Services
PCB Design Layout

Over 25 years, we have worked on practically every type of board there is.  Digital, analog, mixed-signal, RF, high-density, high-speed, multilayer, package on package, adaptor boards and many, many motherboards.   Our boards have gone into space, miles down into the earth, and been carried into war.  We constantly update our CAD tools to the latest technology.  Our close relationships to the fabrication and assembly industries keep us abreast of the latest in design for manufacture (DFM). 

Have a need for design services that, for reasons of security or engineering control, must be performed at your facility?  We will be happy to provide you with an expert in your application, dedicated to your job for as long as you need them.  And of course, our work is always guaranteed to be done to your satisfaction.

Our design tool of choice is Mentor Graphic PADS PCB.  In addition, we offer years of experience in Cadence-Allegro, Orcad Layout, and Altium Designer. 

Parts Procurement and Kitting: No Surprises

We are expert in chasing down small quantities of parts, especially those which are unique or obsolete.  Our large network of suppliers allows us to locate stock in almost any part, or sample it if necessary.  If, in spite of our best efforts, we cannot locate stock in the parts you seek, we are able to suggest substitutes of the same form, fit and function for your approval.  For our turnkey product, this can be done during design layout, or even during preparation of the assembly estimate.  We will also make you aware of any extended lead times that pop up during sourcing.  Our goal is "no surprises" during delivery of your assembled boards.
