Expert PCB Engineering and Design

Columbia Tech offers comprehensive engineering support, from preliminary design analysis through integration and global fulfilment. Columbia Tech will provide design for manufacturability (DFM) feedback for new PCB assemblies to optimize layout and reduce opportunities for defects allowing for higher first pass yields

A dedicated staff of PCBA experts will work with your engineers to define compliance requirements, which can have a profound effect on component selection and architectural methods. They will generate a simple block diagram-that will outline the major components and sections of the circuit-and then propose a methodology for obtaining functional and cost-effective parts to complete the assembly.
