PCB Assembly services

Bittele Electronics is capable of two types of printed circuit board assembly services. They are:

• Full Turn-Key: covers all aspects of PCB fabrication and assembly, including manufacture of PCBs, parts procurement, tracking of online orders, quality inspections, and final PCB assembly.

• Partial Turn-Key: the customer is responsible for supplying the PCBs and a partial list of parts. Bittele will order the remaining parts and perform the assembly according to the customer’s requirements. We can also kit the parts.
