Custom PCBA Production

We design the perfect PCBA solution for our clients

Core Capabilities

A printed circuit board (PCB) is a board used to hold a chip or other electronic components. To accommodate various design needs, a PCB can be a single layer or consist of multiple layers. PCBs can also be single-sided or double-sided in design. Several PCBs can be linked in a single device, using either flexible or rigid connectors.

Our custom printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) designs do more than optimize indication and light output — they do it in the most efficient and effective ways possible. We provide solutions that solve design challenges while minimizing production and assembly costs.

We can design and manufacture rigid and flexible PCBs up to four layers thick, ensuring conformance with UL, cUL, CE, RoHS, REACH and other regulatory requirements.

 

PCBA FAQs

Common questions about printed circuit boards

PCBA Design Options

PCBs can be either flexible or rigid in design

Core Capabilities

Illumination and indication with light pipes require precision and experience. Let VCC develop the printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) that provide the best outcomes for you and your end users. By designing the light pipes and the assembly, VCC can maintain greater control and customize a solution using as few LEDs as possible to achieve desired results. No matter the size of the project, we go all in, combining best practices and deep expertise to design the perfect PCBA solution for our clients.

Rigid

Rigid PCBs are designed not to move, and typically cost less to manufacture than flexible PCBs. 

Flexible

Flexible PCBs or flex boards, are designed to move, twist and fold into the desired configuration, and can eliminate the need for connectors and other components, which can reduce overall production costs.
