What is PCB assembly?

Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA) is the finalized board that is obtained after all the components have been mounted on the printed circuit board (PCB). Printed circuit boards are the core of modern electronic equipment. Without them, many of the electronics we use would not be manufactured. PCBA is somewhat different from printed circuit board manufacturing which involves the manufacture of circuit boards. Assembly is to put assorted components on an empty board to develop a fully functional circuit board. Depending on the application of the electronic device, these components may include resistors, capacitors, integrated circuits (ICs), and others.

In addition, assemblers can complete the placement of components manually or mechanically. Mechanical assembly is the best choice for PCB assembly because of its high accuracy and precision.

How to assemble a Printed Circuit Board (PCB)?

Materials required for PCBA:

1. Printed Circuit Board (PCB).
2. Electrical components such as resistors, capacitors, and others.
3. Soldering materials such as wire, preforms, bar, flux, and paste.
4. Soldering equipment such as wave soldering machine, surface mounter, SMT-Stencil, soldering fixture and testing tools, etc.

The following is the actual PCBA process:
Step1: DFM Check
The DFM check looks at all the design specifications of a PCB. Specifically, this check will find any issues that may severely affect the functionality of the final project.
Step2: Incoming Quality Control (IQC)
Before the start of SMT assembly, verify all incoming materials and handle quality issues. If they comply with our strict requirements, our IQC position will check related material issues.
Step 3: Solder Paste Stenciling
The solder paste is a thin and stainless-steel material. Before adding components to the board, solder paste needs to be added to those areas of the board where solder is required.
Step 4: Pick-and-Place
The pick and place machine places surface mount components on a prepared PCB. Mostly, this is a process achieved by the use of a unique robotic machine.
Step 5: Reflow Soldering
After that, the PCB board is transferred to the conveyor belt through the large reflow oven whose temperature is sufficient to melt the solder in the solder paste.
Step 6: Inspection and Quality Control
After completing reflow soldering, the board needs inspection for quality control. The quality of the board can be checked by several different inspection methods.
Step 7: Final Inspection & Functional Tests
After quality checks, final tests follow. These tests identify errors before a board can go into full manufacture. A final inspection will test the PCB for its functionality as it determines the success or failure of the process.
Step 8: Washing and Drying

Wash PCB in deionized water and use compressed air to dry, making the finished PCB available for packaging and transportation.

What are the factors affecting the cost of PCB assembly?

Factors affecting the price of PCB assembly are including:

·Size & thickness of the PCB
·Component type
·Number of parts, layers
·Soldering methods
·Inspection methods
·Impedance control
·Solder mask and silkscreen color, copper weight, etc.

The cost will vary relying on the component type and technology selected by the customers. Other factors that may make a difference in the cost are through-hole parts, surface-mount parts, fine pitch, leadless or BGA parts, etc.

What is the significance of PCB assembly services?

Due to the growth of electronic equipment manufacturing, the importance of efficient and precise PCB assembly services is increasing. Without a complete PCB assembly (an indispensable part of the mechanism), electronic devices such as computers, laptops, game consoles, calculators, consoles, and TVs cannot operate.

Firstly, it saves investment and labor costs: PCB assembly services provided by external companies can save the company a lot of investment and labor costs.  Secondly, it helps to focus on core competitiveness: By outsourcing PCB assembly services from external service providers, the company can focus on its basic product development and core competitiveness.
