Value Added Services:

In addition to our core advantages, API EMS offers a variety of value-added services to meet your special requirements or product applications.

Automatic Optical Inspection (AOI)

Our AOI stations offer superior fault coverage and are able to inspect all components optically for placement (absence and presence), value, orientation, type, color differences, soldering, short circuits, and dry joints.  This is the most cost effective way for API EMS to inspect all populated printed circuit boards.

X-Ray Inspection

API EMS uses a state-of-the-art x-ray system to provide the highest level of quality inspection for process and board analysis.  While X-ray inspection is essential for verifying the quality of BGA (Ball Grid Array) components, it is also useful for analysis of standard IC packages and connectors.  With x-ray inspection, our engineers can look through the board and components associated with hidden failures to identify and solve problems that would be impossible to find through visual inspection alone.  In many cases we're able to remove defects during the manufacturing process and avoid the expensive performance problems that they might cause.  We save all our x-ray inspection images in digital form for future references and to verify manufacturability.


API EMS's offers in-circuit and functional testing of electronic assemblies. Our Test Engineering Department is staffed by electrical engineers and technicians with years of experience building test equipment and developing effective test methodologies. We can utilize your existing test fixtures or design them ourselves. Either way, we will make sure that your finished product will meet or exceed your quality and performance requirements.

Design for Manufacturability / Design for Assembly / Design for Test Evaluation

This is one of API EMS s key value added services to our customers. API EMS design engineers are experts in designing products that perform well and can be produced cost-effectively. Our engineers can provide a thorough DFM/DFA/DFT evaluation of your existing design and recommend any modifications that will deliver the performance you require at the lowest possible production cost to you. If a new design is needed, our engineers can work with you to build your product from concept to completion, incorporating DFM/DFA/DFT principles throughout.

Standards Conformance

We will test your product to certify that it meets UL safety standards as well as conforms to the appropriate IPC workmanship standards (Class II or Class III). API EMS also offers RoHS design and manufacturing services.
