PCB Design & Assembly

PCB Design

We use Easy PC by Number One Systems for schematic entry and PCB layout.  Our library has many symbols and artworks already created for most common parts.

Gerbers are exported and sent for PCB manufacture. Parts are ordered from an automatically generated BOM.  We have accounts with many distributors.

PCB Assembly

We offer a PCB assembly service for prototypes and small volumes.  SMD and leaded components are fitted manually by hand very neatly following BOMs and assembly drawings with accuracy and speed. We can work upwards from 0402 and we have capability of QFN packages using our manual hot air reflow station and microscope.  Work is performed at our ESD protected bench.  All boards are cleaned, inspected and tested as required by Client.

AWT has capacity to manufacture by hand up to 300 boards per year.  For larger projects, we would help with factory liaison and handover to UK and China.
