PCB Assembly is a process that requires knowledge not just of PCB components and assembly but also of printed circuit board design, PCB fabrication and a strong understanding of the final product. Circuit board assembly is just one piece of the puzzle to delivering the perfect product the first time - without rework or assembly errors.

San Francisco Circuits is a one-stop solution for all circuit board production services. Our clients hire us to be the full turn-key provider for their project from manufacturing to assembly and testing. Through our strong network of well-proven circuit assembly and manufacturing partners, we can provide the most advanced and nearly limitless capabilities for your prototype or production PCB application.

Save yourself the trouble that comes with the procurement process and dealing with multiple components vendors. Our experts will find you the best parts for your final product.

Turn-Key PCB Assembly

We offer both turn-key and partial turn-key printed circuit board assembly.

For full turn-key services, we manage and produce everything including manufacturing the circuit boards, finding & ordering PCB components, quality inspection & testing and the final product assembly. We even have a network of PCB designers to assist with the layout of the boards. Our technical experts provide their knowledge to each order, whether it be a low volume PCB assembly prototype project or a large scale HDI PCB production run.

Prototype PCB Assembly

PCB prototyping has always been one of our most requested services, whether it’s PCB prototype fabrication or assembly. Our expert engineers will check and test your layout to ensure the correct prototype is fabricated and assembled on the first assembly run. Through our network of PCB component suppliers and SMT assembly engineers, we can ensure you a quick turn around and top quality circuit board. We offer low volume circuit assembly for prototyping with DFM and DFT to eliminate possible issues in your product.

Procurement & Assembly Lead Times

The final lead time for your circuit board assembly order is procurement lead time plus assembly time. On average, lead times for assembly are 1-5 days for just PCB assembly and 10-16 days for turnkey PCB assembly.

If you have a PCB layout that requires fine pitch, a rush order or even the challenge of getting a hard-to-find component you have San Francisco Circuits, your PCB partner who is flexible and dependable for your most complicated needs!

Call our circuit assembly experts at 800-SFC-5143 to make your concept into reality!
