Quality Assembly of a Printed Circuit Board is Truly an Art Form


Consigned or Full Turnkey

Printed Circuit Board assembly is truly an art. One that requires specialized skills and expertise. Tremendous effort is involved in the process from auditing a consigned kit to final quality inspection. Whether consignment or full turnkey, Dallas Electronics can get your product to market on-time.

Consigned Materials (components supplied by the customer) Materials can be consigned for different reasons: it may be proprietary product, very expensive product or the customer may at the time have a large inventory. It is not unusual for initially consigned projects to be completed as a hybrid, part consigned, part turnkey.

Consigned kits undergo a thorough audit upon reaching our dock. We compare the Bill-of-Materials (BOM) to the components supplied and verify accuracy in values, tolerances, part numbers, package types and sizes. An audit report is usually generated within the first 48 hours.

Consigned Kit Considerations
Attrition: Dallas recommends the following overages:
Passive Devices: 2-3%
Active Devices: 1%
High Cost Devices: 1 extra or 1%

Special Handling: Please provide any special handling instructions, especially if the assembly uses devices that require special solder reflow profiles or cannot be washed in an aqueous cleaner or other specific handling requirements.

Shortages: Typically component shortages account for almost all delivery delays. In most cases we will not start a build until all shortage issues are resolved.

Full-Turnkey Manufacturing (components sourced by Dallas). Dallas Electronics will procure the precise materials specified in the customer BOM and approved vendor list if supplied. If any, long procurement cycle items will be identified and same function readily available alternates will be provided for customer approval.
