Printed Circuit Assembly (PCA)

Printed Circuit AssemblyThe printed circuit board (PCB) is the last component designed and first component needed in the manufacture of today’s electronic devices and systems. Printed circuit boards are the critical interface between semiconductors and other components that conduct electronic signals outward to an infinite variety of applications.

EPE streamlines the processes associated with the assembly of your printed circuit board beginning with design, manufacturability assessments, and testing configurations for new product introduction, or full rate production schemes. In addition, EPE’s robust operations accommodate rapid prototyping and scalable assembly volumes for your printed circuit board requirements. We handle a broad range of technology specifications from basic to high density interconnect, and everything in between.

Comprehensive Capabilities

Whether you need a prototype or are ready for sustained volume production, EPE’s flexible manufacturing environment and certified staff offers quick turn, high quality printed circuit board production and assembly that can scale to meet your changing needs across a variety of capabilities including:

  • Automated pin through-hole (PTH) assembly
  • Single- and double-sided surface mount (SMT) assembly
  • Ball grid array (BGA) and Micro BGA assembly and rework
  • Land grid array (LGA)
  • Chip scale package (CSP), quad flat packages (QFP), and field programmable gate array (FPGA) assembly
  • Electromechanical sub-assemblies
  • Flex circuit assembly
  • Backplane assembly
  • System integration
  • Passive discrete packages down to 0201
  • RoHS and leaded components and manufacturing

  • In-circuit test (ICT)
  • Logistics

On the manufacturing floor, our standardized equipment platforms include identically configured, multiple surface mount lines, as well as equipment feeders for offline setups.

Built-in Quality

EPE ensures that industry best practices, rigorous quality, and continuous improvement are built into every aspect of our business. In addition to our own established quality systems, EPE is certified and complies with industry best practices and quality and safety standards across all phases of our manufacturing production and assembly.

Our powerful Aegis Manufacturing Operations software (MOS) shop floor quality tracking system captures data from a variety of sources including automated optical inspection (AOI) and X-ray. The Aegis system enables our engineers to address issues immediately, strengthening your production quality, minimizing your operational costs, and delivering a reliable, quality finished printed circuit assembly product.
