PCB Layout Services

Printed circuit board (PCB) design and layout is one of API EMS’s specialties. Our engineers have many years of experience designing PCBs for performance and manufacturability.

All too often, even the best engineers are guilty of designing a circuit board that meets specifications, but presents significant challenges during production. It's not really their fault - it is simply a case of the engineer not being familiar with the downstream manufacturing process and how their design choices can have ramifications on it.

Our engineers and designers have the luxury of understanding the PCB manufacturing process. We can design a layout that will not only meet your technical specifications but will leverage our manufacturing expertise to insure your project is optimized for production.

We incorporate design for manufacturability, assembly and test principles into our design rules from the start. It’s the only way we work. This assures you that you won't be haunted down the road by common bare board, component and test element oversights that can result in production headaches, lower yields and shorter product lifecycles.

  • If you have an existing design, we can help you optimize it for manufacturability, assembly and test
  • If you need a new design, our engineers can work with you to build you project from concept to completion incorporating DFM/DFA/DFT principles throughout
  • If you require a PCB layout from design schematics your engineering team has already created, API EMS's designers are equipped with the complete suite of Cadence Allegro layout tools - the market leading platform for PCB layout and routing automation
