PCB Design Service

Leading the way for over 40 years

PCB Design Service

Miniaturization of electronics have necessitated that PCBs be designed with great proficiency. With high density of components, PCB design service plays a very important aspect in the efficacy of the circuit board. Not only does the design need to adhere to design principles but also to IPC standards, ensuring high reliability as well as signal integrity.

At Mer-Mar Electronics, we have over 40 years of experience in developing and manufacturing different types of PCBs, irrespective of their complexity levels. You can rely on our PCB design and layout services using the latest techniques and technologies. In addition, our expert professionals are armed with industry best practices that ensure you do not have to deal with any costly errors. We offer quick turnaround times for complex boards while not compromising on quality.

Whether you need a PCB layout from design schematics that you have created, you have an existing design that needs updation or need a new PCB design, we have you covered. Not just that, once the circuit board layout is complete, we can offer complete turn-key solutions, including PCB fabrication and assembly.

Some of the important aspects that need to be kept in mind for a high-quality PCB design service include:

  • Board material- This is the cornerstone of any project as you need to understand what materials will be required to create your PCB.
  • PCB stack up- This implies the number of layers that the PCB will have
  • Copper traces- An important component of the PCB, it is important to understand their properties and limitations in the PCB design.
  • Via types – There are a number of vias including buried, through-hole, blind, and micro. Best PCB designs, however, try to minimize the number of vias.
  • Selecting Parts- Choosing the right parts will ensure the quality of the designed PCB.
  • Design rules that deal with component placements, layer allocations, time of flight analysis, Design for Manufacturing (DFM) rules and more.
  • Signal & power integrity- To ensure the quality signal-integrity (SI) simulations will need be performed pre and post layout.

PCB Design & Layout Process

The many steps involved in our PCB design services include:

Schematic Capturing: The process begins with drawing circuit designs on paper followed by processing it using the schematic editor. Our personnel are equipped with using the schematic capture software. The electronic design is then converted into a netlist file. The file has details of component pins as well as circuit nodes.

PCB Component Footprint Creation: This is an important process as it helps to determine the overall space available for various components. On the basis of the footprint creation, a mounting scheme is then determined. The creation of the footprints, help determine the number of layers. We are equipped to use both SMT or Through-hole technology for the actual placement.

PCB Routing: The use of a PCB software is made to route all the physical connections between the components. he software makes use of the netlist to route these connections. Our experienced personnel are fully equipped to undertake complex routing.

PCB Verification & Analysis: Our designers undertake a thorough verification and analysis to ensure that the assembly is free of any defects. This is made possible on account of our robust testing protocols that include in-circuit testing, X-Ray testing, functional testing, AOI and more. No matter what is the complexity of the board, you can rest assured that any defects will be caught and that you will not have to deal with costly errors at a time at the manufacturing stage or worse still when the product has already been sent into the market.
