Our Certifications for Quality Management System means you can be assured of quality PCB manufacturing with us.
We assemble a large proportion of our own PCBs in-house. We require exceptional quality performance from our own PCB fabrication because any defects that manifest themselves during the assembly process cost us tenfold if we have to bear the cost of replacing components as well as remaking PCBs. All clients benefit from this internal feedback.
The humble PCB is the only unique part in every electronic product. Electronic parts can be replaced if they fail, but faulty PCBs render a complete electronic assembly useless. The quality of a PCB should never be risked given the multiplication effect of downstream added value.Available Products & Services
Accept and/or reject decisions shall be based on applicable documentation such as contracts, drawings, specifications, standards and reference documents. Criteria defined in this document reflect three classes, which are as follows:
Class 1 — General electronic products includes products suitable for applications where the major requirement is function of the completed assembly.
Class 2 — Dedicated service electronic products includes products where continued performance and extended life is required, and for which uninterrupted service is desired but not critical. Typically the end-use environment would not cause failures.
Class 3 — High performance/harsh environment electronic products includes products where continued high performance or performance-on-demand is critical, equipment downtime cannot be tolerated, end-use environment may be uncommonly harsh, and the equipment must function when required, such as life support or other critical systems.
The customer (user) has the ultimate responsibility for identifying the class to which the assembly is evaluated. If the user and manufacturer do not establish and document the acceptance class, the manufacturer may do so.
When IPC-A-610 is cited or required by contract as a stand-alone document for inspection and/or acceptance, the requirements of IPC J-STD-001 “Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies” do not apply unless separately and specifically required. In the event of conflict, the following order of precedence applies:
Procurement as agreed and documented between customer and supplier. Master drawing or master assembly drawing reflecting the customer's detailed requirements. When invoked by the customer or per contractual agreement, IPC-A-610. When documents other than IPC-A-610 are cited, the order of precedence shall be defined in the procurement documents.
Newbury Electronics Ltd fabricate all bare printed circuit boards to IPC-A-600 quality standard. All electronic assemblies are built to achieve IPC-A-610 Class 2 quality standard. Note that only Class 1 standard is guaranteed unless otherwise agreed in writing prior to manufacture. For more information on IPC visit www.ipc.org
Newbury Electronics Ltd. is certified to ISO9001:2015 and AS9100 quality standards. We have also incorporated functional elements of BS EN ISO13485 : 2016 into the Quality Management System. These represent internationally recognised quality management systems (QMS) consistently supplying products to the industrial, aerospace, space, military and medical industries. Please note that the AS9100 accreditation covers electronics assembly and procurement activities but does not extend to design, fabrication and conformal coating activities unless those activities are subcontracted to an external accredited supplier.
