PCB Prototyping & Assembly
PCB Prototyping | Prototype PCB Assembly | Fast Turnaround Service
Protótipo de PCB is a preliminary version of a printed circuit board (PCB) used for testing and evaluating designs before going into production. PCB prototypes can be created in small batches or as single boards to ensure that the design meets the required specifications and operates correctly before starting a mass electronics project.
PCBA (PCB assembly) prototypes assist designers in testing and validating their designs, identifying and addressing any issues, and optimizing designs for manufacturability and cost-effectiveness. This ultimately leads to a more efficient and successful product development process.

FS Technology's attention to detail in prototype PCB assembly
Every new PCB assembly prototype project should have an NPI meeting before production to ensure that the team understands all the project details sufficiently. During the project’s progression, we pay attention to the following details to ensure that the final product meets the required specifications and standards:
Component selection: The selection of components used in PCBA prototyping can affect the functionality and reliability of the final product. Therefore, we ensure that the components we use comply with the required specifications and standards. Additionally, we offer cost-effective alternatives for our customers.
Soldering: Soldering quality is critical to ensure that components are securely attached to the board and that electrical connections are reliable. Thus, we use high-quality soldering techniques and equipment to minimize the risk of defects like cold joints and bridging.
Testing and Validation: We perform thorough testing and validation of PCB prototype boards to ensure they can function correctly. This includes functional testing to ensure the circuit operates as intended and quality control checks to identify any defects or problems.
Documentation: FS Technologies maintains detailed documentation during the prototyping process to ensure that designs can be replicated and scaled up for mass production. This includes component selection, PCB layout, and documentation of any changes or modifications made during prototyping.

Medical PCB Prototype Project
Medical electronics is a serious subject, as these products are used to save lives or improve patient outcomes. Therefore, electronic manufacturers must ensure that the medical PCB manufacturer they choose strictly adheres to regulations and quality standards. However, in reality, it is difficult to guarantee the professionalism of some manufacturers. Here is a case study from the medical industry.
Before the customer approached FS Technology, they had difficulty finding a reliable supplier to assist them in prototype production. They had previously worked with other manufacturers who carried out the prototype proofing project but made mistakes in loading bulk materials during the assembly process, resulting in slow progress. They needed a more reliable supplier to assist them with prototype production, which is why they reached out to FS Technology.
At FS Technology, we start the project management process with a DFM analysis to identify any potential issues in the design. This helps ensure that the PCB design is optimized for manufacturing and meets all regulatory requirements. Prototypes are quickly assembled by our experienced operators using state-of-the-art automated equipment in our assembly plant. After assembly, the prototype PCBA board is rigorously tested by FS Technology to ensure it meets all quality standards and is reliable enough for use in a medical environment. Manufacturers are satisfied with the final product and are able to quickly bring their medical devices to market.
Verifiable Prototype PCBA Factory
The typical process for a PCBA project involves prototype manufacturing, small batch orders, and large batch orders. Many large electronics manufacturers have strict requirements for their PCBA factories, and may require factory inspections before montagem de PCB de alto volume. In this case, a factory inspection was conducted to ensure that the factory project met required quality standards, complied with regulations, and did not pose any risk of delay.
A past experience with a consumer electronics client serves as a cautionary tale. The client was attracted to a lower PCB prototype assembly quote found on another website, and despite warnings, opted to work with the company. While the initial PCB assembly prototype went smoothly, numerous quality issues arose during high-volume production, resulting in significant financial losses. This prompted the client to seek out FS Technology.
During the initial cooperation with FS Technology, the client strongly requested a factory inspection to verify their strength. An intermediary service provider in Hong Kong was found, and the client visited the FS Technology factory to review the quality control process.
During the inspection, the electronics manufacturer’s team was impressed by the cleanliness of the FS Technology factory, the advanced equipment used, and the high level of organization and efficiency in the assembly process. They were particularly impressed by the stringent quality control measures, including automated optical inspection (AOI), in-circuit testing (ICT), and functional testing, which ensure that each product meets the required specifications and standards.
After the inspection, the electronics manufacturer was satisfied with the results and decided to continue working with FS Technology as their PCB assembly partner. They trusted FS Technology to provide them with a high-quality product and were confident that the company’s attention to detail and commitment to quality would help prevent any future delays or financial loss.
