PCB ASSEMBLY INFORMATION We require the following files for every PCB assembly order: 1) Cad generated assembly BOM list (or .xls spreadsheet). The BOM needs reference designators, value, package/decal, description, and partnumber. 2) Cad generated component location XYRS file-also called the parts position/rotation file or the machine pick-n-place file. Each CAD system will generate this if requested. We place all SMT components by machine for all prototype orders. 3) Board X,Y, 0,0 reference designators; Board Fiducial Marks are appreciated but not required. 4) Cad generated Gerber files for Top/Bottom Copper, Silkscreen, and Solderpaste. (We don't need the soldermask file, but its okay to include in the zip file)
PCB Assembly Services
988 Assembly offers full Turn-Key and partial Turn-Key PCB Assembly Services. For full Turn-Key, we handle everything including making PCBs, sourcing components, online order tracking, quality inspection and final assembly. For partial Turn-Key, you can order the PCBs or/and partial components, 988 will fix the remaining parts for you.
How to get a quotation for Turn-Key PCB assembly Services?
Send your BOM files (Bill of Materials) and Gerber files to email@example.com, we will email you the quotation in 48 hours. BOM must include the quantities, reference designators,and manufacturer name and manufacturer part number. Gerbers must include the PCB requirements.
Low Volume PCB Assembly
Low volume PCB Assembly means a small quantity of PCB assemblies for DFM and DFT. 988 offers turn-key PCB assembly service in low volume including PCB fabrication, parts sourcing and final assembly.
Design-for-Manufacturing (DFM) should be considered in low volume board assembly. We will review your documentation for any possible like engineering concerns in your Gerber files, BOMs, assembly drawings and circuit diagrams. As a turn-key solution provider, 988 will handle to control your PCBs to lower cost and facilitate the assembly process. We will recommend a solder mask opening to get a high yield rate while preventing solder bridging. We will also check your BOM files against your PCB files and seek confirmation from you before we order parts carefully. It avoids wasting your money and delaying delivery time.
Similarly, Design-for-Testing (DFT) should be happened in your circuit design project, even for low volume assembly. Various models, fixture styles and tester limitation notes are available to support you. You will get our professional guidelines on how to distribute the test points on the PCBs after checking your test procedure. We always do as your test requirements by following your troubleshooting guidelines, diagnostic tests, and associated documentation to make your boards fully tested.
We have various ways to get your low volume assembly project without risk. In our turn-key service, all the PCBs must have the electrically test. Some assembled PCBs could be sent to you for testing before producing the rest. X-ray inspection is available to check BGA and leadless part for ensuring assembly quality. We could solve any possible assembly issues before shipment.
We take reducing cost seriously for low volume orders. NRE and stencil charges will be waived for repeat orders. We reduce your per-part cost by shopping each part number with the major distributors and choosing quantities to get the lowest per-part price. We have built close relationships with major suppliers and others to keep parts sourcing cost competitive without sacrificing quality. We ensure that you will get the best combination of PCB turn-key service quality, price and delivery time.

Prototype PCB Assembly
Prototype PCB Assembly is our specialty. With our professional soldering teams, SMT process engineers and parts procurement specialists, we are able to provide an affordable highly flexible assembly process with fast delivery.
We are able to handle prototype assembly quantities from 1 to 300 boards. With this services, you could get complex designs built for testing without worrying about assembly workmanship. Our prototype assembly area has a unique layout design that allows flexible mixing of automated and manual part loading stations. It is easy for us to handle the fine pitch components and BGAs needed for high density FR-4 boards.
Turn-Key PCB assembly is our core business, even in the prototype stage. With our expertise and resources we are able to do everything for you from PCB prototyping, component sourcing and PCB assembly. We could also assemble from kitted parts if you prefer.
Avoid the dilemma of sourcing parts and focus on your design instead. Our procurement teams will deal with as many as component distributorsis so that we could get a nice price for you ! We will optimize the choices of packaging (cut tape, tube, bulk, etc.) versus quantity in smaller BOMs to reduce amount cost. We are able to cross reference parts including the uncommon ones and obsolete items. We always source the part numbers and manufacturers specified in your BOM files, so there will be no danger of part quality issues caused by substitutions. We never change your design without your confirmation.
The total Turn-Key price will be the sum of the labour assembly cost, bare PCB cost and components cost.The component prices will be our cost from Digi-Key, Mouser, Avnet, Arrow, Future, Newark or a specified distributor plus a handling fee.
We understand on-time delivery is very important. PCB fabrication is started as soon as parts procurement is processed. We will review Engineering questions and component issues with you before the assembly job is started. The Turn-Key PCB assembly usually takes 2-4 weeks, and it will be less time if there is no uncommon part or documentation errors.

BGA (Ball Grid Array) Assembly Services with X-ray Inspection
988 is able to provide BGA assembly, BGA rework and BGA Reballing services and have a 6-year experience. With the advanced BGA placement equipment, standard BGA assembly processes and X-ray test equipment, you could get high quality BGA boards from us.
BGA Assembly Capability
988 has rich experience in handling all types of BGAs from micro BGAs (ball pitch 0.3mm) to large size BGAs (ball pitch 0.8mm), and from ceramic BGAs to plastic BGAs.
BGA Assembly Process/Thermal profiles
Thermal profile is the most importance one in the BGA assembly process. Our SMT engineers will carefully review your PCB files and the BGAs datasheets to make a best thermal profile for your BGA assembly. We will take the BGA size, BGA ball material composition (leaded or lead-free) into consideration to make effective thermal profiles. When the BGA physical size is large, we will optimize the thermal profile to localize the heating on the internal BGA. Or it will cause a void. 988 follows the IPC Class II to control the void under 25% of total solder ball diameter. Lead-free BGA will go through a specialized lead-free thermal profile to avoid open ball problems resulting from the lower temperature. On the other hand, leaded BGA will take a specialized leaded process, to avoid the higher temperatures from causing pin-short.
When we receive your Turn-Key order, we will check your PCB design for BGA combined with DFM (Design for manufacturability) review, including checking the circuit board material, surface finish, maximum warpage requirement and solder mask clearance.
BGA soldering, BGA Rework & Reballing
You may have only a few BGAs or fine pitch parts on the PCBs for R&D prototypes. 988 could help -- we are able to provide a BGA soldering service for testing and evaluation purposes. Additionally, we can support you for BGA rework and BGA reballing with a nice price. We follow five basic steps to carry out BGA rework:
1. Components removal
2. Site preparation
3. Solder paste application
4. BGA replacement
5. Reflow process
You will get a 100% quality assurance for the BGA rework.
BGA Assembly X-Ray Inspection
988 will use an X-Ray machine to detect various defects which might happen during the BGA assembly. With the help of X-ray inspection, we could eliminate soldering problems on the board.
