element14 Partners With PCB Assembly Express to Provide Quick-Turn Prototype PCB Assembly for Prototype and Low-Volume Production Needs

Mar 23, 2012

Newark's element14, the first collaborative community and electronics store for design engineers and electronics enthusiasts, today announced a partnership with PCB Assembly Express to provide its quick design and assembly prototyping services to North American customers.

Through this partnership, design engineers can easily access PCB Assembly Express' high-quality services through the Knode on element14, an intelligent online search and knowledge tool that helps engineers research, select and buy the right solutions for their designs. With invaluable services such as instant quotes directly through the Knode on element14 and quick-turn, fully-assembled prototypes in as little as 24 hours, engineers can streamline the design process and fully manage PCB assembly projects.

"We understand how important it is for engineers to have reliable and efficient resources during the design process, especially in today's fast-paced and competitive design environment," said Agustin Araujo, CEO, PCB Assembly Express. "This partnership allows us to offer our services in one easy-to-access location on the Knode on element14, giving customers the resources they need through the entire assembly process, and most importantly, in a proficient way for them to complete their designs."

Before engineers complete a design board and ship a finished electronic product, a few test copies of the design are typically manufactured as fully assembled prototypes. This process can prove to be very time consuming for engineers, as many manufacturers are uninterested in producing just a few prototypes or do not have the special design materials required for a particular design process. This partnership with PCB Assembly Express offers engineers a unique opportunity to receive instant quotes at any time for PCB design, layout, fabrication, and assembly services, without board quantity restrictions, directly through the Knode on element14.

"PCB prototyping is a critical part of the design flow, which is why we're excited to integrate PCB Assembly Express' services on the Knode on element14 to expand our design resources and offerings for engineers," said David Shen, Chief Technology Officer, Premier Farnell. "We're committed to finding the most reputable service providers and technologies to help engineers with every stage of the design cycle, minimizing risk and increasing productivity so they can stay focused on their final project." www.element14.com, www.pcbassemblyexpress.com
