Our Medical PCB Assembly Services Includes

Medical PCB Assembly

Medical Device PCB Design

Mer-Mar Electronics has been one of the leading Medical PCB Assembly companies tirelessly working for the medical devices PCB design. We are adept at designing flex, rigid, and rigid-flex medical printed circuit boards and can build compact PCBs that fit into any compartment of the equipment. We pay great attention to the nitty-gritty of the PCB design to make them damage-resistant and reduce high heat dissipation. We also stay current on the rapid developments in PCB designs of the medical systems and brace up to upgrade the equipment as per the trends and challenges.

Medical PCB

Lead-Free Medical PCB Assembly

Compliance is our top priority. No matter what medical application you need PCBs for, we make sure to find lead-free PCBs that comply with RoHS regulations. We provide RoHS-compliant surface finishes and materials for all the products to protect the environment, safeguard the workers’ safety and patient’s health. We also maintain stringent control over all incoming vendor components. We are in constant pursuit of finding and replacing safer alternatives for your PCB. By complying with the RoHS guidelines, we make sure that your company’s bottom line is not affected in any manner.

Medical Device PCB

Rigid-Flex Circuit Board Assembly

In the medical industry, a necessity arises to build ultra-slim circuit boards especially for small devices like pacemakers. We fabricate circuit boards with higher pad and wire density with closer spaces, and finer lines to build the smallest & lightest solutions for your circuit designs. Even if you need rigid-flex materials, we provide optimal solutions to build shock-resistant environments and high-precision medical applications. Through advanced rigid-flex circuit designs, we design circuitry for building versatile and strong boards.

Medical PCB Manufacturer

Extensive Material, Substrate, and Coating

We pick the right PCB substrate materials for building a high-quality medical PCB assembly. With so many kinds of substrates, coating, and materials available, we pick the low-cost and highly reliable material for laying a strong foundation for your medical PCB assembly. We selectively coat with parylene for improving the surgical procedures’ lubricity and ensure electrical insulation. The structural integrity of your medical devices will be maintained with a perfect platform or canvas for holding all of the components. The performance and durability of your circuit boards and other components are guaranteed.

Medical PCB Prototype

Solder Paste Stenciling

We speed up the assembling of your components through solder paste stenciling. When we apply solder paste on your board, we use high-tech machineries like reflow ovens or pick-and-place machines for letting that glue together. We aim for high-precision and repeatable solder paste deposition in the medical PCB assembly. You can have the flexibility to apply solder paste only where you need it. We help you pick the stencil type based on your requirements. We use both manual stencil printers or automated printers for getting your stencil ready. We also polish the stencils and can print multiple boards without losing accuracy.

Medical Printed Circuit Boards

Reflow Soldering

We aim to form acceptable solder joints through reflow soldering method of attaching the surface mount components on to PCBs. We take all precautions to not damage the PCB or components through overheating. We make sure to pick the suitable machine and acceptable reflow profiles. We then focus on PCB footprint design and carefully use well-designed stencil. By picking the good quality PCB, components, and solder paste, we place your surface mount components in the most reliable and effective manner for both prototype and mass production.

Medical PCB Design

Fine Pitch, BGA & Micro BGA placement

We offer fine pitch, BGA, and micro BGA placements. We have delivered many high-density PCB assembly boards with a significantly high amount of components using fine pitch placement. We tend to push the limits of your PCB fabrication tolerances through fine-pitch components. We also route the BGA and micro-BGA pins with a number of layers and without high-end fabrication techniques and we ensure BGA and micro BGA placement without damaging nearby components. In many wearable devices, we use micro BGA packages.

Medical PCBs

Medical PCB Prototype for High-Temperature Measurement

We provide a comprehensive range of PCB assembly prototypes that can withstand and remain resilient even in extremely high temperatures. We offer PCB prototypes for three categories – standard temperature, high temperature, and extreme temperature. Both the standard and custom-designed PCB prototypes can be provided for high-temperature circuits. We help you avoid erratic system performance and outright failures in cases of elevated temperatures. You can be assured of maintaining the structural integrity of your devices even when they have to deal with extreme temperatures.

Medical PCB Assembly Techniques

Mer-Mar Electronics follows a cost-effective and efficient process for placing and assembling electronic components on the surfaces of medical printed circuit boards accurately and precisely. We have experience with all the three assembly technologies –

  1. Surface-Mount Technology (SMT)
  2. Through-Hole Technique (THT)
  3. Mixed (Both SMT and THT)

However, we recommend Surface Mount Technology to assemble PCBs for medical systems. You can utilize the latest automated equipment for building high-level quality and compact-sized PCBs. We follow the surface mount technology assembly process for building lighter and compact boards and for meeting the unique requirements of the medical systems during the circuit board assembly. Our engineers at Mer-Mar Electronics are capable of creating higher density and increasingly complex circuit boards even in smaller assemblies at envious precision.

Through SMT techniques, we build extremely fast and cost-effective medical PCB assemblies. Through SMT technology, we also reduce the overall assembling time by eliminating the need for drilling holes in the PCB. In addition to SMT PCB assembly, we are also capable of providing conventional through-hole technique. Through-hole mounting is used when we have to manufacture robust medical devices and also during the prototyping stages of the build.
