Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA)
Design and Manufacturing Services

A PCB on the selective solder machine

ADL Technology specializes in providing complete design and manufacturing services for Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) and Printed Circuit Boards Assemblies (PCBAs) at our facility in Columbus, OH. Our capabilities include:

  • Four fully automated surface-mount lines
  • Automated optical inspection
  • Leaded and lead-free selective solder and wave solder
  • Cable and wire harness assemblies
  • Conformal coating
  • Functional testing
  • Final product assembly

Our LEAN facility handles both high mix/high volume production runs and the supporting prototype and pilot builds required for printed circuit board and printed circuit board assembly projects. Our facility is RoHS compliant and ISO 9001:2015 certified.

Surface Mount, Printed Circuit Board Assemblies Capabilities

Our capabilities for surface mount boards, aka SMT include

  • LED assemblies
  • Fine pitch and BGA/uBGA  placement (ball grid array)
  • QFN placement (quad, flat, no leads)
  • Leaded and lead-free assembly
  • 0201 components

We use a Pemtron 3D solder paste inspection system to make sure that the PCBA’s you ordered meet your specifications, no many how many test points you may require.

Through Hole Printed Circuit Board Assemblies

  • Automated and manual through-hole operations
  • Leaded and lead-free assembly
  • High mix/high volume production

ADL Technology offers both automated and manual through-hole assembly services for printed circuit boards production runs.

Additional Electronic Manufacturing Services

Since all Printed Circuit Boards (PCB) are parts of larger systems, we provide the following services to support the completion of your finished product:

  • Conformal coating for protection and ruggedization
  • Box builds and systems integrations
  • Control panel assembly services
  • Wire harness assembly

Printed Circuit Board Assembly Design Services

Utilize our design engineering team for as much – or as little – design support as you need.

  • Concept development, schematic capture, PCB layout
  • Prototyping of new designs
  • Analog, digital, power, and low-power design
  • Microcontroller-based design
  • Firmware development
  • Design for manufacture

Testing Services

We believe that building your PCB assembly is only part of the process and ADL Technology prides itself on producing defect-free products.  To achieve our high quality standards, we:

  • Visually inspect each assembly numerous times throughout the assembly process to ensure that quality is being built into the product
  • Utilize automated optical inspection on 100% of boards built using SMT technology
  • Perform a full functional test on 100% of circuit boards in accordance with your test specifications
  • Create a custom test fixture for your PCB assembly design
  • Troubleshoot your device to the component level

Project Quoting

To quote your Printed Circuit Board (PCB) assembly, we typically require:

  • Bill of materials: reference designators, component manufacturers, part numbers and substitution allowance
  • ​​​Gerber files: describe each PCB assembly layer; used by the PCB fabricator to build the bare circuit board
  • ​Fabrication notes: type of circuit board material, leaded or lead-free, and other special instructions for the circuit board
  • ​Testing instructions: any necessary procedures, fixtures or firmware, if required
  • ​​​Timing and quantity: estimated annual usage (EAU) and the desired product delivery schedule
  • ​​Other documentation: assembly drawings, electrical schematics, ASCII-formatted PCB assembly layout files, etc.
