Prices include free standard (as per our detailed lists)? resistors & capacitors supplied from our own stocks of taped and reeled components. Prices are also inclusive of assembly tooling and laser cut solder paste stencil costs.?
Assembly prices are based on the total number of discrete parts we assemble. SMD capacitors, leaded resistors, connectors, ICs, QFPs, etc., each count as one placement. So, 5 R's, 5 C's, 5 IC's, 5 connectors and 5 QFP's would count as 25 placements. Our prices assume a typical mix of electronic parts. On the rare occasions that there are a disproportionate number of difficult to place parts, we may quote you the additional costs before proceeding with assembly.
BGA and similar classes of components e.g. Quad Flat No leads, (QFN) are specifically priced within our standard pricing model.? These parts have connections underneath their body which can only be inspected by endoscope and are more costly to place. Please note that press-fit connectors are excluded from our standard pricing model and? will be fitted subject to? specific quotation.?
Customer supplied PCB Components:
Customer supplied components, commonly called "free issue" parts are not to be confused with the free standard "Rs" and "Cs" which we supply for all orders.?
For orders under a total of 500 SMD placements, discrete SMD parts (non-taped and reeled) may be supplied. For orders which exceed a total of 500 SMD placements, the components supplied must be taped and reeled and ICs must be tubed or waffle packed, otherwise our quoted assembly prices will be invalid.
Quoted assembly delivery times start from the completion date of the bare pcbs.
Requirements for customer supplied parts? are set out in the assembly technical advice document.
Free standard "Rs" and "Cs":
