ExpressPCB Launches New Low Cost, Fast Turn PCB InitiativeMarch 1, 2016 | Business Wire
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
ExpressPCB, whose mission is to provide software and manufacturing solutions for low cost, fast turnaround prototyping, has just announced new promotional pricing for its MiniBoard and MiniBoardPro Services. The MiniBoard and MiniBoardPro manufacturing services offer low cost and fast turnaround on high quality, 2-4-layer PCBs.
For design engineers with less complex PCB prototypes that need to be completed in a hurry, ExpressPCB CAD Software combined with Miniboard and MiniBoardPro manufacturing is the solution of choice. With these tools, engineers can design PCBs quickly in the easiest PCB Design Software available and order right within the program.
ExpressPCB is also announcing the addition of UPS Ground Shipping. This new service provides a lower cost shipping option for customers.
In addition, ExpressPCB is now actively registered with System for Award Management (SAM), the Official U.S. Government system that consolidated the capabilities of CCR/FedReg, ORCA, and EPLS.
“I have been using the service for over 18 years, for rapid prototyping, and small production runs. I think the ease of use and quality/price/speed are most compelling. The employees at ExpressPCB really make the difference, as they provide excellent support for any questions that come up.”
James Edward Smith, Senior Embedded Systems Engineer
ExpressPCB has worked hard over the years to streamline processes to be as efficient as possible. This allows ExpressPCB to pass savings on to their customers, supporting their mission to help Design Engineers quickly bring their ideas to life with their free CAD Software and the lowest manufacturing cost possible. Time is money, so waiting weeks just to get prototype PCBs onto the test bench can have a huge impact on a project.
ExpressPCB MiniBoard and MiniBoardPro manufacturing services are a part of ExpressPCB’s comprehensive manufacturing solutions including ProtoPro and Production services.
ExpressPCB is the established leader in providing software and manufacturing solutions for low cost and quick turnaround prototyping. With 18 years of experience in delivering easy-to-use PCB Design Software and high quality, on-time PCB prototypes, ExpressPCB is committed to improving the prototyping process for the design engineers.
ExpressPCB’s Schematic and Layout tools are simple and unencumbered by multiple layers of menus, options and settings that more advanced PCB Design suites require mastering before you even start on your design project.
If time is of the essence and there is a need to quickly turn out a prototype to get a project off the ground, then ExpressPCB is the only choice.
The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) released the following statement from SIA President and CEO John Neuffer in response to the semiconductor manufacturing incentives announced by the U.S. Department of Commerce and GlobalFoundries.
One of my great joys as a grandfather of eight is spending time with them at the park. It doesn't take too long until I'm getting stuck on a slide that is too small for me or on the seesaw, with me on one side and them trying to lift me. At that point, they learn some harsh lessons in physics and how heavy Grandpa really is. A seesaw is a relatively simple device, but it’s a great way to explain a rather complex concept in PCB design: design tradeoffs. Each decision made throughout a design comes with inherent pros and cons.
NEOTech Launches World-Class NPI and Electronics Manufacturing Center of Excellence in Silicon Valley, Northern CA02/20/2024 | NEOTech
NEOTech, a leading provider of electronic manufacturing services (EMS), design engineering, and supply chain solutions in the high-tech industrial, medical device, and aerospace/defense markets, is excited to announce the upcoming launch of a state-of-the-art New Product Introduction (NPI) and electronics manufacturing center of excellence at its Fremont, CA facility.
It’s easy to get distracted in an election year. A constant stream of polls, primaries, and political prognostications will surely dominate the media cycle. Elections are important, but they should not distract the 118th Congress from the important work of securing our fragile supply chains and rebuilding microelectronics manufacturing capacity on our own shores.
